Thanks for your thoughts. I screwed up on the way the decal should look. It won't be faded. It will be solid gloss black. I will post some pictures when it is completed tonight.

Well here is what I went with. I think it turned out pretty good and is definitely original! I also had the door pillars wrapped in black and then added hood spears. The truck is coming along nicely!

I voted for leaving it stock, but that's actually pretty neat. It's better than either of the original options.

It does however look like the decal-ed area is simply in shadow.

Thanks! I know a vinyl guy that put it on. This was actually the third version. The first was cut by a computer, the second flopped before we cut it, and the third was cut by hand! He did a great job cutting it out!

Yeah, I noticed that too. If you look at it from the side, it actually looks pretty cool! Plus it covers the handle and sort of makes it invisible!
