Looks awesome! I searched ebay but could not find the stickers. You remember the sellers name? Also how the stickers holding up on there?

Im going to contact Adam Haack tomorrow, im not sure if he makes them or not but he has been doing a lot of the b-body related decals for years now.

If he says he's able to do it ill see if he would be willing to do a group purchase on them as there seems to be enough interest.
