    Yesterday my preperation for the upcoming New England Rally started with getting all my vinyl word done.

    The process started a couple weeks ago when I went down and met with Alex. He carefully walked me through several designs till we came up with a few things that really stood out for me. With access to what seemed like a 100+ different color vinyls we were able to pick the perfect combination.

    The day started with my car getting washed and full alcohol treatment...


    Once the car was dried, Alex got right down to it and started working his magic. He was pretty meticulous when it came to the job.



    At one point he wanted to strip one side off and start over. I told him that since these are only on for a short amount of time, I didnt think it was worth it... I think we were all tired from a long day of decal application

    The YR side decal is 3 layers of vinyl. Each layer needed to be applied seperately... basically 6 large vinyl decals. A white layer, a red layer and the eye popping chrome layer on either side.

    When the larger side decals were done, we started cutting a number of other decals... The decal machine was awesome... it's like a paper CNC machine...


    Sean from the New England Rally drove down from New Hampshire to deliver us our decals for the event. I started installing these while some of the other stuff was getting cut... More CHROME...



    When the car was done, it just looked unreal... better than I imagined it even.







    Alex, Thanks again for a GREAT Job... you went above and beyond what I imagined for this.

    The decals do look incredable. Alex was so meticulous it was insane. I have given up way before the first side was done.

    Looks great Pete. I didnt know the stickers for NER were ready. Both you car and Sam's look great though.

    Alex - did you get my email on the logo? Wondering if we can still get it done at 11.75 instead of 16 to avoid having it done in multiple pieces.

    We got a lot of looks on the highway leaving that day. It's going to be an interesting next couple of months. We've got to drive extremely responsible no matter what happens. Don't want any of the sponsors to look bad at all.

    I hope this is something Sean mentions to all NER drivers about being even more careful and respectful with decals on their cars. We are in affect, representing those companies in a way.

    That is stressed, and is the reason this is a poker rally, not a time rally. It is well understood that you are not to drive like a moron on the rally, and that speeding is frowned on (not that it stops some people).
