As it sits right now.

The classic Chevy Orange was added due to rust and chipping paint on the bumper and roofrack.
Decided to go with a bright color inspired by Kyle's hood decal and a guy I met at the overland rally's brightly painted rock sliders.

Spent 45mins yesterday at my local sign shop trying to get the font right, I think it's damn close!

Picked decal up today and installed on my newly painted wind break off my BajaRack that was chipping and peeling.
