    I know I have posted this before when I painted it, but here is it installed /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I know I know I'll probably bang it against a bunch of rocks, but I had spare time during my axle rebuild (waiting for more money to grow on the tree /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif)

    I guess great minds think alike, so how did you make the sticker, or did you just use the pic and have a friend do it? Help me, I want to get one of these, or get steve on this!

    [/ QUOTE ]

    It's all painted. We sized the CK5 logo to the size we needed then cut it out and traced a stencil over the Yellow paint with masking tape. Painted blue then pulled of the stencil.....Wallah /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I put a few coats of clear engine enamel over it to smooth the lines out.

    Where are the pics that you originally posted. I looked up the previous post but the pics aren't shown there anymore. I just wanted to see a close up. Looks like a lot of detail work went into that /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif Nice job /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif How long did that take?

    Here is a close up pic. I painted the diff cover Daytona yellow (4-5 coats) Then the area that you see are Yellow I used masking tape cut into stencils (traced from the picture I printed out). Painted a few coats of the blue then "carefully" pull off the stencils. Washed with soap and water to remove tape residue...then hit it with a few coats of clear /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Took me 2 days..just letting the paint dry takes the longest. I had a friend help me with the stencil making /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Aren't you afraid that all those coats of paint are going to make your axle heavy?
