    Hey guys I am looking for a site that has a large selection of 1/5 decals I can browse. Not sure exactly what I am looking for yet, I have a beetle body on my KM t1000, in a yellow black scheme. Recommendations would be awesome

    What are you wanting sponsor decals or graphics or what? DDM has a few graphics decals type in DECAL in the search to see them.

    Or there is this at DDM as well http://www.davesmotors.com/s.nl/c.885035/n.1/it.A/id.5065/.f

    Check you local bicycle shop. Shops that specialize in BMX racing will carry ABA and NBL numbers that are approximately 4" tall and either black or white. They often come in sheets of 3, 1 large plate number, and three corresponding smaller numbers for helmets. ANother option I have used is to purchase Motocross vinyl graphics kits, for example, this is what I did with Monster Energy logos before everyone and the brother and grandmother were using them.

    Good luck!

    Hey Blakey

    Check out this page. I got the clear decal waterslide kit and printed my own decals and they work really well and hold up against the elements.

    here is a pic of the car I did.

    Cheers,

    Wow that came out really nice. I am actually very familiar with the water slide kits. I use them all the time when I am making scale models. I just never thought they would hold up. Great looking shell
