Default Before and After Pics

I have owned this RV-4 for nearly a year now. When I bought it, it was all white. I loved the all white, but I needed some way to spruce it up a bit. Id love to see what you all think. I used 3M vinyl to do it.

How hard was it to put on the vinyl?

Not hard at all. Not hart to put on, or take off. The vinyl that I got is very rigid. It has to be positioned right from the very first moment that it is stuck. It doesn't sway, fudge, curve, finagle, or scootch. If it's not placed just right, you'll pull it up and replace it. It goes fairly quick.

I just finished the wings today. The rudder held up for a 200mph 2 hour rt. That's all I can ask for. I have $110 wrapped up in wrap.
