My father is friends with a graphics shop here in town, and the owner is willing to make these decals fairly cheap for me. I would imagine if we set up a group buy, everybody could get them. I understand that many people on the forums like debadging their cars, but for those who wish they could get new decals, heres your chance. I'll post single prices today, and I already have some original mint shape decals on my parts car. I will also be getting a GM Motorsports window banner made that should look similiar to the Chevrolet Racing one with the stretched flag around the words.

An update. Getting every single decal reproduced will cost $45cdn for the whole set (chevrolet, or pontiac decal, sprint or firefly turbo decals for hatch, sprint/firefly turbo intercooler with triangles for both sides) . N1tr0, would you care to go into a bit more detail about what you need? I don't quite understand why you would want the decal inverted to use as a template.... wouldn't you just outline the original decal onto your car? A crude picture might help.

Edit-
These prices so far are what is expected, it could (and is starting to look like) it may be a bit more expensive. I am going to bring my sisters car down to the shop today to proof the decals.

I think he wants the lettering removed from the background. "Inverted" is a bit of confusing way to describe this...

Here are pictures of what the decals will look like:

And the GM Motorsports banner:

I don't know how much I like my dads rendition of the GM banner, it might need to be revised. Final pricing is going to be $50cdn for the side decals and rear hatch decals. Firefly decals are also available for the same price.

Ok, as a sort of bump, me and my father are ok'ing the final product on monday. I will have the final price then. Only Sprint Turbo decals are available ATM! The GM banner is totally optional (obviously), and I don't know if I will even get any made as they weren't turning out like I wanted.

The decals have been finalized. Should be getting some printed within the week and applying them to my sisters car. Pricing will be $45cdn for both sides plus the hatch decals. These are exact replacement decals, down to precise scaling and scans. Unfortunatley, ATM these are only available for MK2 sprint turbo cars. I will contact everybody that has been in contact with me so far.

I like the windshield banner idea and would be interested in one.
As for the decal kit, I like the mysterious looks people give you when they look at me flyin by.

Sorry for the ignorance

I suppose these (the turbo sprint decals) aren’t available at the dealer anymore?

As far as I know, they aren't available anywhere. I am sure there have been people who have done what I have, but these will basically be readily available for anyone who needs them.

Here are the finals everybody. A whole decal package is $45cdn plus shipping. A package includes the side decals (specific to the left and right sides just like the originals) which have the triangles, turbo intercooler, and sprint, along with the rear hatch decals which include Chevrolet and Sprint Turbo. The banners are seperate (and I doubt anybody wants them, but I like them :D ), and no price has been made yet for the banner. I was not allowed to peel off the backing on the decals for better pictures because I do not own them yet, but I think the pictures I have do a fine enough job. ATM, I have 7 of the decal packages ordered (one for my father, one for my sister, one for tangbang, one for yosh, one or two sets for BigBearZuke and a spare). They are not going to be cut until tuesday, and as always, the more people in the buy the cheaper they are.

so if I read this correctly

both sides + hatch = $45?

if yes to all of this please Put me down for everything that was on my car bonestock (but not the banner thing) :

Pm me your coordinates (name / where to send money order)

you would be shipping to Ottawa area

Thanks

Will

Erm, sorry about the delay guys. Been real busy this week, but I am going to go and see about picking the decals up today. Yes 3cyl, all of the side and hatch decals are included for $45cdn plus shipping. I have 5 turbo sprint decal sets, and the people who are getting them are:

3cylturbo-1
tangbang-1
BigBearzuke-1
Yosh- 1
Schmikel- 1 (unconfirmed, do you still want a set, you have PM).

If people want more, I can get them printed off for hopefully the same price at later dates.

Hey ,

I know I forgot to add the shipping to my money order / so there being shipped COD, just wondering if CanadaPost gave you any kind of info with the shipment.

I'm just curious cause Its been over a week and they still haven't arrived. The address I used , there is someone home 24/7 so its not like the delivery guy can claim nobody was there.

Sorry Will, there have been some difficulties with other people getting their MO's in. I am going to check today (payday :D ) about getting everything all suited up, shipped out etc. Sorry about the delay, but I did not expect problems to arrise like this (which I should have considering its a group buy).

Cheers

I was hoping to hear how the decals worked out. I want to get 2 full sets, but for a Pontiac Firefly Turbo. Any help is appreciated.
