I purchased my decals from "PG" from this website. It was a simple no brainer operation. The decals have been on my car for at least 2years now. No problems....no complaints. Shipped fast. I would recommend them. "Hitman" helped me with the correct color of decals for my car.

I apologize for the delay.  I'm not sure what the hold up is, but would like to make sure that you're at least somewhat satisfied with this transaction.  Unfortunately I can't locate your file for without having more information.  Please call 800.941.4550 and ask for Nathan.  Thank you.

sorry but you guys just are not putting them on right or something...

I know the sail panel birds I think are some old stock , cause the last few kits Ive had  had the sail bird with the paper backer.   unless they come that way.     but I have not seen any problems with the few kits ive seen or helped put on. 

when you use wax/greese remover ,  are you wipping it off with a clean cloth as soon as you wipe the remover on.  kinda like wax on wax off.     you got to wipe it off before it evaporates . 

you may have toooooooo much wax in the clear.  you might need to 3000 it and power polish the area then put the decal on.   its ok to put decals over polish.  (not wax)

No disrespect Doug but I have put on quite a few stickers/decals, the car was clean, its not that they wouldn't stick to the car more than they would not release from the backing paper.  Funny that the ones from S and S adhered just fine.  If you have good luck with PG then by all means continue to use them, I am just stating the issues I have had is all.

Nathan at PG contacted me and is sending me the new graphics.  I explained to him and he made it right, so thats a good thing.   New sail birds are on the way

well considering they are part of this community, they took care of the problem and they didn't charge seems like decent business at least..... I have no loyalty to any sticker places, I was just stating my opinion, I believe that is the point of a forum?

It took awhile but they made it right, as long as I get the stickers I'll be happy.  Part of the issue was they wanted me to call them if I didn't get the stickers they supposedly sent, I got tired of getting attitude on the phone so I gave up and didn't call.  So at least now this issue is resolved.

Just questioning that 2 months with attitude is" decent" business as is your opinion.  You think it is and I think maybe not and that is a little surprising to me that anyone thinks that is "decent". Just stating MY OPINION.  Maybe its just me who thinks that after I spend my money on a product that the guy who took my money should stand behind  that product and provide me with the service for the paid for product in a timely and professional manner.  A consumer should not need to post in a public forum in order to get service, it should just happen.   But that is just me
