Default Decal update

I just wanted to add a little trick for getting all the air bubbles out. If you are lucky enough to have a soldering iron that is adjustable set it to low(300)heat. Using a clean part of the soldering tip gently rub any areas that aren't perfect. My experiance is that this works everytime. Another poster mentioned that you can poke a hole in the bubble and use a hair dryer/heat gun to get rid of the annoying bubble.

Anyone that knows how to print can do this. You just need the Testors decal kit (with spray). I used photoshop to tweek the photos darkness and microsoft publisher to print several pics at once. You really have to watch losing resolution when you resize the photo. For some reason when I use publisher for resizing the pictures still print fine. If you can't seem to figure this all out and still want to try then PM me and I could send you some decals ready to go. Trade? I could sure use some empty .308 cartridges. Here's a link to the testor products. Here in Oklahoma I bought the kit at Hobby Lobby.

Default Bowl season special

In the spirit of the Bowl season........
All Big Ten fans (except Ohio State) can PM me if you need the photo. Everyone else is welcome as long as your title includes, " The Big Ten is the Best conference in football."
Just having a little fun.
