    Default Let's see that vinyl

    I can't figure out anywhere to put this so I thought here was good enough. I'm looking for a decal kit to break up all the black on the Sierra. The only kits I can find are dumb looking. I'd like to see what everyone else has on their trucks or any good ideas.

    I recommend some good wax ... and some paint-matched fender flares ... and some nerf bars ... and some wheels. Seriously, don't break up the black; draw the eye elsewhere, instead, with functional upgrades. It has the exact same effect but it's achieved a different way ... and doesn't look slapped on like a decal.

    I would not put any decals on it. I would debadge it and embrass the mirror like black truck that you have. That being said I found this place http://www.decaldriveway.com/decal-c...y/body-accents. I would not put any of them on my truck. I have seen a black sierra around here with ghost flames on the doors and bed, it actually looks ok. http://www.vinylgraphics.net/shopdis...fix=No&cname=G. I have also seen a guy use boat graphics on his truck. There are no words just the graphic that would go on a Baja. You could always create your own custom design and have a shop make it for you. Then at least you are not putting the same graphics everyone else has on your truck.

    If you want to break up the black, try using some small pinstripes. Utilize the stock part that you can paint to match the stripe.

    I have to agree with Sur. I would add chrome to highlight all that black. Keep the deep shine and make it better with shiny chrome.

    I'm not going to use something universal. I was looking for something cut for the Sierra like a decal to put into the hood recess or around the lower window sills. I have been debating on a 1/4" dark purple or blue pinstripe around the window sills and hood recess. Subtle but it would be there for those who pay attention. I do want to do performance upgrades but college tuition is taking most of my money. I am also removing all the chrome and either painting the pieces to match or black chroming accessory door handles and trim pieces.

    I like the Idea of chrome and some professional pinstripe to accent the black. I also believe that college expenses should supersede truck mods as edumacation is paramount in ones building a strong future.

    I saw a black NNBS this morning on my way to work that had vinyl graffics in a Satin black running down the side, looked real sharp and broke up the paint just a little without being distracting, just subtle.
    I was gonna take a picture but just as I was jockying the steering wheel and the camera I noticed the driver eyeing me and a second later I realized the graffics I was looking at said "Texas State Marshall" decided I better concentrate on driving a little more and get that picture later.
    Like I was saying though the Satin Black broke up the gloss paint just enough to catch your eye but not distract from the looks of the truck.
