Auto Trim Design did my Budweiser car based off a diecast car I brought them. They can make anything you want. There are other vinyl cutting places that do this to - probably any place that can do body wraps in your area. The price won't be cheap, but it is actually way better than the price of OE decals for some special editions.

I think this is a great project you are working on - that's a damn fine looking car!

I'll have to look into that company. How much did they charge you to do your car? and what tires are those? I like the yellow side wall letters.

Auto Trim Design charged me a cool grand (yup... $1000) from the decals installed and warrantied. The dealer wanted $3500 (!!!!!!) for the OE Dale Jr Edition decals uninstalled. I thought there were more Auto Trim Design's, but maybe not. You didn't say where you are from, but throughout the US vinyl cutters are more common. Ask a race team at your local short track if you need more help.

The tires are GoodYear NASCAR Eagles, but I don't think they make them anymore. Definitely not in Canada. Performance wise, the tires suck. But they look good, right? They are actually raised white letter tires and I use a tire paint pen to make them yellow. The paint is usually good for a year or 2 before I have to redo it, but my car doesn't see snow or much mileage. I actually just re-did the lettering this week and it really does pop - even more in person. Thanks for asking about them so timely - I really do love my tires!

Well, they could probably make the decals. But to me it seems like a good idea would be getting whoever makes the decals to install them. That way, you're not on the hook for an expensive decal when something goes wrong installing. Even small imperfections will eventually bother you (air bubbles, etc). I know for certain that Autotrimdesign discarded a several decals that weren't right in the creation of the BudChev.

Do not put your own decals on!!! Spend a little bit to have a professional do them, it's worth it, believe me. Mine still bug me every day. Mine aren't completely straight and there's air bubbles all over it. Much better to have somebody else do it...

well actually theres a body shop in town that does a ton of custom body and decal work. I was going to let them deal with that company with the graphics.
