Going to put this on the hood of my truck

Got a company working on a decal (without the blue back ground) to install on the hood of my truck. It will cover the whole hood.

I hope you don't leave guns in your truck unattended, that decal is a dead giveaway. As are any gun related decals & stickers.

Txs for the heads up.

I try not leave any guns in my truck, As far as them steeling the truck won't ever happen. Won't go into detail wy but I have had a truck already stolen thank god I took my pistol in the hotel that night, so with this new truck my performance guy did me a favor. And installed a tracking device. They would have to tow it away and that would be hard to do because I wrap a big coated chain around the front rim when we go on vacation and leave it in the parking lot.

Plus I have a gun safe bolted inside the truck that's made for the truck.

Beautiful decal. Most people around here would see the eagle and not see the details.

I'm not worried about a broken window, that what insurance is for. They will not find or get into my truck vault. Since the first truck I had got stolen I've done things to make sure this truck doesn't go any where. I can live with a broken window

That's what I think too. If I seen a truck loaded with decals like that I'd be looking over my shoulder. Thinking twice about it. I pm you info on image.

If the design isn't finalized, you could add text across the bottom, something to the effect of:

"(No weapons left in the vehicle. They're on the guy standing behind you.)"

Nice. Reminiscent of the old Pontiac Firebirds.

I get the opposite impression as some of the others... This style of decal doesn't scream to me "there are lots of things of high value inside." I suppose the starting point there is the fact that it's a decal instead of a paint job, the subject matter is the closer.

Maybe you're putting it on the hood of your Lincoln Mark LT or Cadillac Escalade?

I and a lot of people I know think it screams THANK YOU to my forefathers for what they set up for us, believed in and died for. The 2nd amendment / constitution.
When I show some old vets (World war 2 & Korean War) that I know this logo and tell them what I'm doing they shake my had and say thank you!! It's nice to see them smile. That smile is worth more than all the money in the world. Or a broken window.

Got the company that owns that image to release it yesterday to my detailer, good to go! The only thing they wanted from me is a few pictures of the truck when's it's done so they can use them for there web site and other things.

When it's done I'll post pics.
