You could probably even put the crest back in that one since it is a little taller...

I think it looks good and will cut well enough -- by which I mean no really small parts that will be hard to piece out etc.  I printed the image and am attaching as a pdf so anyone can print and consider for sizing etc.

I like this variant; the crest would add complication and size and I suppose is not really needed since the design is for the car.

I agree, probably too complicated to stencil, I set the PDF scale to 80 and the size was perfect for the stationary glass.

This one scaled about 80% to 7 in wide by 2.5" tall -- note the height is actually higher than the text lettering.  The actual lettering is a bit over 2" tall.

Good.  Unless more inputs on that one I will print some test decals, then there will be a delay for holidays, get more vinyl, then if all goes well I'll mail out some sets of that one.

Please verify color and 1 or 2 needed.

In the tail of the Y and the F does that little center piece have to be placed separately?

No.  Transfer tape is used over the top of the whole thing.  Then when you receive the decal, you remove the backing, and apply the decal as a whole.  Smooth it down with a credit card or plastic edge to ensure every part of each letter and mark is adhered.  Then you carefully peal off the transfer tape from the 'front' of the letters.  if any of the letters come up with the transfer tape, press it back down and rub it with the edge then re-peal the transfer tape off.

The backing came off just fine all in all; I added the transfer tape and removed the backing for this photoIMG_3010.JPG

Here you can see the transfer tape pealing back

Driver side, minor issue in weeding and the car is dirty, but looks good.  Taking off the previous white decal was easy but did take some pull so good.

Ok I have some of these almost complete (cut out and weeded); please PM me mailing address if you will put it on your Cadillac and whether you need 1 or 2 vinyl decals.

There is a bit of finesse needed when you pull the backing paper off, to make sure the decal stays on the transfer tape, and then also after applying to the window when you pull off the transfer tape to make sure all of the decal stays on the window.  In both cases running over the decal with a credit card edge or similar tool can help in the transfer.

Steps:

1) clean off the window location, allow to dry

2) apply credit card edge with light pressure to transfer tape side to enhance adherence of decal to transfer tape

3) lightly and carefully pull backing off, exposing the decal sticky side.  Do not pull the backing off all at once unless the decal easily adheres to the transfer tape.  If any of the decal adheres to the backing, press it back into place and 'scrape' the transfer tape side again over that part

4) with the backing removed, carefully place the decal onto the clear window, aligning as desired on first placement.  For the two above, I curved the decal into an arc and applied the decal to the window from the middle of the decal out to both ends.  

5) Scrape the transfer tape side again to ensure the decal is completely adhered to the window.

6) Lightly and carefully pull the transfer tape off, leaving the decal adhered to the window.  If any of the decal adheres to the transfer tape, press it back into place and 'scrape' the transfer tape side again over that part.

7) photograph the resulting applied decal
