Custom graphics on C180
Just removed the OEM side decals on my 05 challenger, to install these custom graphics instead, OEM decals were all scratched by the previous owner of the boat so instead of replacing them with the very expensive OEM ones, i opted for these....some will like it, some not, i personnally like them better than the stock ones.
Here's link for you to see:

Thanks for your words, honestly...it was quite a job, i needed two other helpers, and we had to install it let's say 5-6 inches long at a time, progressively unvealing it, wetting both the decal and the boat hull, then placing it, then squegee to wipe off the water, and finally remove slowly the premask, let's say that at 22 inch x 110 inch you can't just peel everything off and try to install it without proper planification.
The bigger the decal the bigger the challenge to install it.
1-Measure and mark everyhting for proper positionning on the boat
2-Put reference masking tape on each side and tape the full decal for fit
3-cut the extra unneeded premask of the graphic.
4-then only begin peeling the front first 10 inches, wetting and install.
5-Progessively work toward the rear of the decal.
Both sides took about 4 hours of work in total...!!! But job is well done...!
Best thing is unlike custom paint, you can always remove the thing easily and without having to repaint the hull after, the gelcoat finish is still untouched.
