    Default Reflective black lettering to replace the silver badging.....

    So I did the reflective black decal on the hood of my truck and I'm thinking (and the idea was brought to me by a buddy of mine... to replace the 4X$ decal as well as the (3) silverado badge letters and the LTZ lettering on the back... I'm tempted to do it... but just wanted to get some input from all of you about it.. all your opinions and suggestions would be great!

    Here's the vortec decal for anyone who has seen it yet..

    I like the Vortec label so I would go for broke and just do it.

    Some of the cop cars around here have the black decals on black cars - sneaky in the day, can't miss at night.

    I've been thinking about running a gold reflective stripe down my truck and camper. You may have sold me on it;)
