For the Racers and Track Addicts

I hope I'm not starting a controversy with this. I couldn't think of place for it. If I'm breaking any rules, please let me know and I'll remove this.

I've been playing with the graphics on my 1st gen track car. I've also started to do track decals as well for those of us who have been on track in our cars.
The small ones are great for helmets or cars. Those of you that are interested, please PM me.

I have the ones below and am continuing to get more prepped every day. Any requests? I'll soon have most of the main tracks in the US.

Great, but there's no tracks in the North West, no Pacific Raceways, no Portland International Raceways, no Spokane Raceway Park, no Mission Raceway, no Race City.

I'll get right on it. They'll be done tonight! I started in the SE since that's where I do my tracking.

That is really cool. I always wondered where people got those stickers and now I know.

Can you do the old Bridgehampton Raceway? That was the first track I ever drove on and the most beautiful IMO.

Thanks.

What is RGPR? It looks like the old layout at little Talladega.

And how about some Beaverun?

Darn, that's a typo. Should have been TGPR. Yeah, it's the old layout of Talladega Grand Prix Raceaway. I made up beaverrun last night.

I didn't know if posting a price would get the thread killed. I hope not. If so, I'll be happy to remove the price.

$3 for up to a 4x4" track decal. I can cut up to 24" wide and as long as needed.
Discounts are also given for volume. The bigger decals 12-24 are great for the side of a trailer. A 12" is $8 for example.

There's a "Race items for sale" thread stickied at the top of this forum you might want to check out. I've seen other race-related items for sale here, so I guess you're not breaking any rules

How about Brainerd Int'l in MN and Blackhawk Farms in WI? For orders should we PM you? Can we pay via Paypal? Neat product.

I'll get those two this weekend. I'm usually adding 3-5 tracks each evening. Yes, PM's are the best way to order. That way I can keep track of everything I need to. Paypal would be great. I'll handle all the details (tracks, color, size, etc) in the PM's.

Back at home now. Done a few more recently. I'll be cutting a lot this week. Bare with me please... wife is having me paint the master closet too.

Here is the list and some of the tracks I've prepped recently.

Blackhawk Farms
Branerd Raceway
Homestead
TMS
Atlantic Motorsports Park

These were added last week/this weekend.

58 Tracks so far. I'll keep working on them. You all let me know if I don't have one you want....

$3 each.

Received mine today! They came out great and are super easy to install. As requested, here's a few ideas:

1) Would it be possible when people order multiple pieces to do them in a batch job such that they're all on a single decal in a row? For those of us without any creativity who just put them all in a row, it would make it easier to align multiple images if they were all connected at the time of application.

2) You might want to just pencil in on the back of each decal which end is traditionally "up". I know it doesn't really matter of course but people are used to seeing a track layout in a particular orientation but may not remember off the top of the head what that is when going to apply the decals.

3) Also regarding the 2nd item: you might want to offer them as a reverse image because if they are applied to the inside of the window, once you go outside of the car to check your handiwork, you realize all your pictures are backwards!

Just a couple thoughts. Otherwise great work, thanks! Here's a picture of my backwards application (sorry battery in camera wasn't charged so I used phone):
