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 :)

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.

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