    The Transit is going for graphics in a couple of hours so I need some links or pics of Graphics on what to stick on -2008 Crew cab MWB tranny
    After being let down all last week I decided to get them done by Mick who's done all my others instead of the mate who kept promising :Smile:Once they are done I can get some pics and shes up for sale :thumb:
    Anyone seen or got something that stood out from which to copy etc, Been trawling ebay/autotrader for ideas on how much to sell it for but not really looked at the stickers side of things until now

    if it was me, I would try to incorporate the internal colour scheme into the graphics. then pick something that breaks up the vast expanse of white and makes the van look modern and current.

    take a look at the various dealers websites for what the main manufacturers are doing

    Agree with the above, but would also remember that sometimes less is more...... don't overdo them... Keep it classy so that it appeals to everyone. If someone wants to add more then they can do their own thing.

    I agree with the last posters.. less is more..

    keep it simple and classy Terry .. :thumb:

    seen a lot of DIY vans that have gone way over the top with graphics and they look like Mr Whippy vans :RollEyes:

    My favourite starter.

    Cut melon in half, clean, fill with port. Enjoy.

    Thanks all and duly noted and hopefully done as my interpretation of your suggestions --I don't think it's gone overboard and incorporated green in them :thumb: Will post a pic azs soon as it stops raining :thumb:
    Chris I like your pic but it will seriously stop the female interest in the van but I may get a large male following :thumb::winky:

    Hope it's not too much and I am not too great with green but it brings the inside and out together :thumb: Your thoughts? I can always change them ::bigsmile:

    Looks ok but I would extend the graphic on to the wing as it look like it's had a new wing

    nice work, but I agree with above post, it appears to stop a bit abruptly at the door

    Really, really like it Terry. Good job. Agree re the front wing ... but don't overdo the extending of the lines ... perhaps just finish them of with one of the 'points' like on the rest of the graphics. Brilliant.

    Bet you feel really chuffed, don't ya...::bigsmile:

    Agree re the wings but difficult with the wheelarch and the mirror mount; but definitely needs some sort of continuance.

    I would have preferred the rear one to extend across both doors , preferably asymmetrically.

    But these wouldn't put me off buying it if I was in the market, it's just the difference between a work of art and a masterpiece, isn't it?

    Hi got them from Mick who owns (not sure) MC Tints at Doncaster 07739913161 CANNOT REALLY SAY HOW MUCH SINCE it was done as a favor,but I gave him £60 to cover the cost of the vinyl and stuff plus he put them on for me :thumb:-I don't think it would cost much more to have them sent to you but you would have to fit them yourself -lots around on ebay for about 50 quid ish so I may have given a bit over the top but he fitted them for that :winky: I was happy with what was done and he did not want anything-like I said he can not keep doing stuff for nothing for me as I will be back ::bigsmile:
