Getting the bike repainted this weekend. I’m in search of replacement decals for a black ‘03. Any reliable and quality sources out there? If I had more time I would have ordered early enough to get them clear coated on ..... my loss.

i hav found some on eBay but they ship out of Bulgaria ....does anyone have any experience with the Bulgarian supplier?

Could you provide a link? Mine came out of Malta. Who knows, might be the same outfit.

This is the exact same outfit I bought decals from a few years ago. Took 6 weeks, came rolled fairly tight in a tube but undamaged. I had to reorder some decals because I foolishly attempted to install using the "dry" method. Second attempt was using the "wet" method (soap and water). This was successful. Hint, do not be in a hurry for installation or drying. After 2 days I cleared over them, no issues.

Agreed! Took forever! BUT I ordered over the winter months for my makeover. Product A1!
Tons of options. Used dry method.... But then I've been wrapping for 5 yrs now.

Best place although maybe not the cheapest is The Image Works The Image Works Vinyl Graphics
I would second that and their prices are actually very reasonable. Can't say I have ever asked about Bird decals but I would be surprised if they didn't appear in their standard catalogue. Provided the decals for both my DR and XL.

Lol What might that be? In general weather using dry or wet method, taking yur time is paramount!!! You can practice B4 hand by taking regular cheap wide band clear tape and cut three strand about 6/7 inches long, tape them together slightly overlapping then place tape on wax paper THEN take yur decal and trace shape on tape, in this case tank decal(Honda wing)cut it out now U have "copy". Can make as many as you like and practice! for "planting" accuracy take copy or original decal and with wax pen or marker DOT 4 to 6 points on the tank like a boundary around decal. Hope that helps for future decal jobs!

P.S. As an option, just before adhesion(And for better long term wear) you can slightly heat the surface with blow dryer, warm to touch. Cheers!

Nice job Duck! Be curious to know if they have a base catalogue. The one I mentioned earlier honda-decals.com has a plethora of colors and sizes to choose from and prices are really decent. The only real downside is shipping time. With that said I'd still be curious to see what they may have for the Blackbird...
