    Thank you so much! I guess the angle will be the hardest. The "flattest" photo you can get would be perfect. Kinda' hard that low to the ground I know.

    I have a couple that are unmounted. Plus, I have a couple pieces of bodywork with OEM "V-FOUR" in other, flatter, locations too.

    256 mm across top from the upper left of the "V" to the upper right of the "R", right where it starts to dip down into the red "shadow". Make sense?
    46 mm high perpendicular to the top of the decal.

    If that's not enough contrast in the photo I'll try some different lighting.

    Perfect! Nice rides by the way. Very cool! That 500 looks like a total blast.

    I should FINALLY have the "V-FOUR" decals in my hands this week. It's been an adventure with this particular decal. When recreating the image based on your photo, there was a slight "squat" to the letters making them look too small. After some tweaking, redoing, cussing and proofs, I think I have it!

    That looks really good. In person they do have a tad more "squat" than what seems in your pic. I just walked out to the shop and held my phone up while viewing one. It's going to look sweet! Nice job.

    Yep that's from the slight curve on the plastic and the fact it's hard to get a flat photo. With perseverance I'll get there!

    wish I had seen the sooner, pretty sure I have a set of "V-Four" decals on the shelf, could have had them for cost of shipping.

    Man what a nightmare the last decal turned into. After the print shop said they could get it by...several Friday's ago, I finally had to go elsewhere because it turns out the first place couldn't even open my damn file! So, after two other print shops and a compressor failure later I finally have an installed and clear coated VFour decal!

    A little more work to do yet on the gas tank and I'll be done. Finally!
