spray the cowl with soapy water, spray the grafix with same, apply, move around till they are where you exactly want them, then with a new filler scraper or similar work from the middle outwards and squeeze all the excess water out, leave for about 30mins then remove backing paper......

or get 'love juice' from a graphics shop and use it in place of the soapy water

How about these? Should go well on my new Gav cowl?

He does a lot of different ones according to his Ebay shop too. Might be useful for someone.

Think I might have the Mercury logo in chrome with mid-blue 'waves' under the 'M'.

Found a great font for the '200' on the back of the cowl too. 'Handel Gothic BT' in chrome again with mid-blue 'shadow'
