Just finished my custom C50 Ghost decals, pretty pimp if you ask me!!

The new decals came in at 14.4g, against the original 17.6g decals, which means a slight yet well-received weight saving of 3.2g :D

(Sorry about the poor pics, but the whole idea of the project was to remain subtle!)

PM me for details :)

Nice decals, too bad the red spokes scream Fred.

What red spokes? The red nipples are standard on the wheels.

Thanks guys.

The decals are custom, derived from the standard C50 pro ones.

I lost the outline around the 'C', then sized it up to match the rest of the lettering, then had them printed in matte black.

Installation was a bitch, took about 4 hours, but I got there in the end.

So, are they vinyl, waterslides or something else?

Full vinyl, with I think a 4 year guarantee or something...

My bad, red nipples I mean. Nipples should be black, for a real ghost.
