I've undertaken some various vinyl wrapping / tinting projects, and one of the hardest parts is getting precise cutouts / cutlines. The only way to do it properly involves a decent amount of graphics work, and finding a shop with expensive machines to cut it. Furthermore, the initial setup fees push the overall cost way too high for an individual run.

So... I'm playing with the idea of selling precision cut layovers, if there's enough interest to make it worth it. I haven't worked out any numbers / pricing yet, but leave a comment if you're interested!

I've seen the LaminX films, but feel they are overpriced. I'm also looking to design layovers in different shapes & shades from what I've seen out there (the clear-only portion of the Ex taillight as shown above being one example).

And yes... it is a lot of work- FOR ME! For anyone purchasing these from me, it would be as easy as the LaminX (or any other tint) to apply.

It's not personalized plates it's just a re-release of the legacy black color classic plates. $50 is all. IMHO I think the black on black will look clean also the black and white combo will look great as well. But to each his or her own.

I used Knightshades on my Taillights , three coats. They look awesome blacked out. Get lots of compliments on them.
