For those wanting to make up their own.

I was bored so made up the Range Rover font for bonnet and tailgate decals with a clever Font creating program. I think they are spot on.

Either copy and paste the file into Windows/fonts or simply open the file and when you open a program - e.g. Word or Photoshop or similar the font will be accessible from the font menu.

Bear in mind the file only contains the letters RANGE ROVER in upper case so you will get a blank typing any other letter. I may do the entire alphabet one day but dont think I will ever be that bored.

..............Problem........... It wont let me attach the ttf file. Can anyone suggest how to do it? Only 16KB.

The pic is just an example of what it looks like.

I think you could rename the file to a .jpg or .txt and then upload. The user would just have to save it to their pc and rename.

Just an idea!

Should have thought of that. Thanks.

Right click the attachment - save link as - and name it RANGE ROVER DECAL.ttf
Or save the file and re-name it when saved.

Then as explained above.

Hi,

I already got a genuine LR rear decal awaiting for installation. The only thing that's holding me up is that the back of the new decals doesn't seem as sticky as it should (i.e.: I don't think it will hold up in the long run). Can anybody recomend what adhesive to use ?

Also, I'm planning on using masking tape to record the original letter placement. Then I need to clean all the gunk left over by the previous decal. What would you use to remove all that dirt ? I dont want to have new lettering surrounded by ancient dirt.

Thanks in advance,

N.

HI,

Just an idea.

Use the old schoolboy trick and "trace" the position using a piece of paper and the side of a pencil or a kids crayon. Mark the corners of the paper you use on the body with masking tape...

Keeps the work area clear for cleaning etc

Good luck

THANK YOU, o.p.! Has anyone used this on a Classic? If so, are there any modifications that you would recommend to make it look right?

I took all of the badges off of a Scion xb and I used WD40 to remove the remaining glue/ gunk. It worked well.
