Hey Rex, check out this thread http://cabg.forumotion.com/decals-and-techniques-f10/ it should have everything you need. Check before you post. Also, please capitalize letters at the beginning of new sentences, and use punctuation at the end. Thanks! Smile

What was wrong with them?
Only problem I had is that my sticker sheet didn't have the STAP sticker.

NO UBER! That's exactly what I thought too! I was going to post the sheet online to ask if anyone else had the problem but there actually is a STAP sticker on there! I'll show you where it is if you still have it...

Rook what's effed up with your stickers?

See I told you! That's what I thought too! I don't have bad eyesight, but I put that sticker sheet under a light, and practically up in my face. It was soo hard to find wasn't it!?

Ouch Rook. That's no good. Hopefully TLC will send you a new one, free of postage charge too. The only way I think that it could get like that is if the box was being shaken- whether it be a little kid, or during transport to the store.
