So what I thought was going to be an easy endeavor has become almost like chasing a unicorn. I’m looking to get decals for my 2018 Springfield Darkhorse but in copper. I figured the local car wrap place or window tinting specialist would do something like that but it’s too small for a car wrap place and the window tinting place wants nothing to do with it. I know with all the creative people on here Surely someone here can/has the ability to exact match the Indian heads on my Springfield that I can simply overlay on the factory decals..

I don’t currently have the ability to offer what you’re looking for but I soon will. I’ve got several decal styles but I’m working on expanding my business offerings within a month or two and should be able to produce what you need in copper metallic vinyl.

You Rock! I love your stuff! I just ordered a couple of your shirts. If I had a blank gas tank on my Indian, your beautiful Native American Girl would be adorning both sides of it!

Call Hollister Indian and talk to Rey or Hollister Harry. Eric the painter can make you anything you like or turn you onto some Gilroy versions. Whatever you want man...

Thanks Chief! My decals actually cover the original logos if you have the warbonnet or script on the tank. If you have emblems, they just have to be removed first, which is easy ;) - when I designed them, I made the the right size to just stick on over the originals. Makes it easy and if someone wants to remove them later, everything is still stock

Will they shrink with a little heat gun to conform to the curves of the tank without a wrinkle or feathering at the edges of the decal? I'm a sign guy, so I'm pretty familiar with laying down vinyl onto curved surfaces.

They actually conform to the curves of the tank without a heat gun, with no bubbles or wrinkling. They’re 12mil laminated vinyl, so it’s likely the most heavy duty vinyl you’ll have seen and they’re so high quality, you won’t need a squeegee or vinyl card to apply them. Easily done with just your fingers. I went through about 5 different manufacturers before I found the one that makes them for me and I couldn’t be happier with the quality ;)

Matte finishes for the Dark Horse?

Matte finishes for the Dark Horse?
I should have it available in matte as a special order soon. The special order is a way for me to offer some designs or styles that I don’t carry in stock (carrying inventory has a big cost to it as I’m sure you know) - but it means that it could be 3-4 weeks before the customer gets their decals since they’re manufactured on demand, and the cost goes up on them.
I recently had some extra time and set up several of my designs to have this special order capability and I was actually working on the Dark Horse last, just hadn’t finished up yet lol.

If you need any measurements on the Warbonnet, let me know.

Thank you sir,
I’ve got the measurements on pretty much everything except an FTR tank right now. My Dark Horse decals I have designed right now, will cover an OEM warbonnet on everything except the Challenger (which is a bit larger)... so I will likely increase the size of it a bit when it’s time to restock them. Hope that made sense, got interrupted by work several times while writing this response lol.

@Wulf I just got one of your tshirts in the mail today that I ordered. I normally wear a 2X, and your 2X fit me perfectly. Now, I'm just anxiously waiting for your Nizhoni Warbonnet Graphic tshirt.
Thanx!!! I love it!!!
Awesome! So glad to hear that brother! The Nizhoni shirt could take a bit longer. They're shipping the all-over print shirts from Mexico right now because of COVID and it's taking longer. Would love to see photos if you get a chance!
