Thanks. Yup, those are them. Could have saved some time ordering from you!

Sorry I didn't see your inquiry about them. I have updated our website to make them easier to find, now under:

Defender -
-------Body - Exterior
-------------Labes, Badges, Decals

Cheers,
Zack

Whatever you do, DO NOT purchase anything from the eBay seller "opelise". I purchased an "OEM Defender Bonnet Decal" from them before (not the one I have on my car). It was neither OEM or for a Defender. Took ages to ship and when it did it wasn't even close. I tried to contact them a trillion times through eBay and over the phone. I shipped back the unused decal and they never refunded me the money. I didn't even bother to pursue it any further.

STAY AWAY:

I bought one from RN a few weeks ago and are now on my 110. They look great and they don't "look" genuine, they "are" genuine NAS versions.

Brandon, those look great! I wanted to go that route before but besides not knowing where to source the genuine ones without ordering across the pond, I wasn't sure they'll fit the non-puma hood/bonnet.

Are the letters small enough to "fit" the lip of the non-puma hood/bonnet? I was afraid my first car wash would peel the letters off.

I realize this is a touchy subject for people and I thank you for your opinions and honesty. This is a superfluous upgrade that I wanted and am pleased with the results. May not be for everybody and I get that.

I'm not trying to pass my truck off as a current gen model either. I just think the decals give the truck that pizazz is was needing. Plus, it goes with my teddy bear wheels...

Heh, on my series truck I put all kinds of stickers (kroq, various record/Bands) since I figueed it was an old series truck who would care. On the d90 never put anything.

They "fit" just fine. It took me about 30 minutes and a lot of painters tape to make sure I had everything lined up perfect before I sealed the deal. Once they're on there, they're on there.

I got mine from Paddockspares.com. Shipped pretty quick and was cheaper than any set I've seen here in the states.

Now, as far as coming off in a car wash...that't the least of my issues. With that SD roof rack, I've only found 1 car wash that I can fit in and boy oh boy is it a close fit. Then when I'm in there I end up getting an interior was as well with the marvels of British engineering.

The bonnet decals are nice. Just make sure you measure twice and apply once. I'm really sorry if this is somebody's truck here on the forum, but I wanted to avoid poor spacing like this:
