Thats where I got my second set after the first one being discarded due to paint job, and veneerz's website stopped working for a long time.

Only $25, one of those awesome cheap mods you can do and they offer many color/patterns.

Can anyone post a link to the product on automotive concepts website? I looked around on it and can't seem to find the decal set. Maybe I'm just blind lol

Thanks!

Lol. Thanks. I actually do drive it, but not as much as I used to. My work is about 2 miles from my house, so I get to drive it mostly on weekends.

i like the way the flat ones look. but i got them before and they dont fit good :/ you couldnt tell from far away but im a perfectionist. NETdivers looks like they fit perfectly though i think ill go with the domes now that i lost mine due to bumper repainting

aw, man! ugh...i've ordered 3 sets because of new bumpers i've had to throw on. i couldn't justify paying another 30 some dollars on stupid inserts. i went with the 6.99 ebay inserts - flat. albeit, i really wanted the domed carbon fiber one aw well, i'll make it work...haha

I know someone in here painted the lettering. May be a DIY in the garage.

They use 3M double sided tape and come with an alcohol swab to prep the surface. Mine have been on or nearly a year with no trouble whatsoever.

ProjectX, Pennsylvania does not require a front license plate. WOO-HOO!

LoveMyTL-S is correct, there is a DIY in the Garage for painting the lettering, but I think the dome decals are much nicer.

They last, I have had mine on for a year now. I love the way they look, I have the domed ones by the way. It is a pretty subtle mod and most people will not even notice it, unless they are a TL owner.
Here is a shot of mine:

In my experience, the fitment on the flat, $7 eBay ones suct. I spent 10 minutes trying to line up the first "A" and it was readily apparent that it was too small. Not only that, but it was obvious there wasn't enough vinyl to fill the 'channels' of the letters. You get what you pay for.

They are no longer available on their site. At least that's the message I get when I go directly to the item.

Apparently Automotive Concepts doesn't have them anymore and I'm not having any luck finding one on Ebay. Does anybody know of a site where I can get a carbon fiber looking one?

If you're looking for domed ones, they are not being produced at the moment. If you just want CF look, you could always get some vinyl and go nuts!
