Defender Windshield Decal

I had a Defender windshield decal made at a local place called MotoGFX (see contact info below). It is similar to the windshield decals that some of the old Camel Trophy Defenders had except I used the bonnet badge Defender typography with the slash through all the letters instead.

It looks great and is very high quality. Reasonably priced too. If anyone is interested in ordering one contact Matt Fishler at MotoGFX. He has my artwork for this sticker. If you do order one I suggest shrinking it about 15-20%. My first came out too large which makes it highly visible. The white color also adds to the visibility so if you prefer a more subtle tonal approach I would go with a grey or black. Here's Matt's contact info. Very nice guy.

Can you get some made that say Mustang or Hummer or Chevy? Maybe you could add the little cartoon guy peeing on your choice of autos. Maybe you can get us one that is upside down and says "if you can read this....".

I like the way the Defender type font looks and I thought it'd make it obvious to those who thinks its a landcruiser or jeep.

You can order whatever you like so as long as you have the artwork. Send him an email.

Jay.

My experience in the past has been that you get what you pay for.

Surely you do not charge $5 irregardless of the size?

The decal I had made was 665MM x 70MM.

I'm just trying to support a local business who does quality decals for motorcycles, racecars, etc.

Scott.

$20 shipped. You can do any color you want. Check the website. It's not a cheap sticker. It's quality vinyl and semi-permanent adhesive. All the letters are individual. It's not your average bumper sticker. If you have other ideas in mind, talk to Matt. He has my Defender graphic on hand as well if you like that one.

Revised Defender Decal

I updated the Defender decal and had it printed in black instead. Looks really nice. Very subtle.

Wifey's GTI has a mirror image "MOVE OVER------->" on the windshield. Its either very effective or prompts many middle fingers (in which case also effective).

I'm convinced that DC metro area driving instruction actively leaves out keeping right unless passing...
