I'm sure you can purchase decals elsewhere...possibly for less. I cannot vouch for the other companies as I have not used their products.

When it comes to something as important as the decals for a Trans Am, I would spend my money on quality vs price everytime.

"You get what you pay for" is usually true  ;)

Hitman sells these.  Maybe you can get a better deal through him.

2 things you don't "cheap out on"

1. Decals --- you spend 3-7k for paint only to save a couple of bucks and put junk on? Makes no sense DUMB idea.

2. Weather seals you spend the money for paint, decals etc then drop on cheap junk seals and the doors never open.

Dave ya are a bright guy and we have spoke many times, in plain terms "don't be cheap" if you have to wait a few weeks and save the extra boot DO IT, Phoenix Makes excellent products and you will be impressed in the end when ya pony up and do the right thing for your car...........................
