Don't want to be too fast or too furious

so i was thinking about putting my little decals on the side of the my car that say like "AEM" or "APR" whatever, but i didn't know if this would make my car look too fast and the furiousish. i was thinking maybe down the side at the bottom. thoughts?

I'm not a fan of the side roll-call... if you want to use those decals, put them under the Hood

some people do put a roll call.. personally it's not my thing. I agree with Sultan

I'd rather just put it under the Hood to keep everything looking clean on the outside...

here's some ideas though...

Generally the people with most ALPINE or whatever stereo stickers have the crappiest sound, I bet its not much different for those stickers.

Also it probably wouln't be a smart thing to "advertise" any easily stolen goods like audio on the outside.. tongue

I like it when some car's have some decals as long as it's nicely done.. some in the tiny rear side window is ok.. or on the side skirts isn't to bad.. but don't over do it and most important only put decals on from stuff you actually have on you're car.. don't put a NOS sticker on if you have NX or when you don't have any nitrous @ all cause at that point you;re a ricer

yeah, i could not agree more, i was gonna do eibach, c-one, TRD, tanabe, AEM and apr, but i decided since my car is a daily driver i'm not gonna do it. maybe if someday i get rich enough that my celi can be my "weekend" car i will start throwing some vinyls on her.

I have a group of vinyl on my small rear window, and some days i like them, and other days i dont. Like nebraska said, if it was only a weekend car i would say thumbsup, but it is just a matter of opinion.

anything on the body of the celica looks like it robs the beauty of your car.

i'd put a roll-call list under the Hood thumbsup it looks more impressive with you open up the Hood and all them folks are gonna be like eek

personally I think only show cars should have roll calls etc. unless these companies are paying you to promote their products then you can advertize all you want.

Don't listen to the roll-call haters. It's one of the things most people in town talk about on my ride (Oooh, I have writing on my car! Haha rolleyes) The best thing about a professional roll-call is you have all the decals the same color, size, etc...as opposed to slapping on the vinyl decals you get from a company when you order their Intake or whatev.

hey stephen, i like the way you did your roll-call positioning. that way looks more tasteful to me.

IMO, he first 2 pictures posted above looks a bit like an eye-sore. just my $.02
