Is there any good way to figure a pattern when you put stickers on a race car?

My car has been stickerless until now, but the paint is getting old for a race car. Pushing 8 yrs. It has some flaws that are starting to get worse. In particular the left qtr panel has about an 8" diameter area that is about to flake off. It's not rust (except a few bubbles in door corners), it's just flaking off where the surface was not prepped as good as possible. When it flakes off it shows primer underneath. I will get it painted again, but that's not in the cards $$$$ wise right now. Prob 2 years down the road. Maybe

I have saved all the mfg stickers from parts bought over the years and have enough to cover half the car if I wanted. I was thinking about doing the qtr panels, rockers and perhaps the lower front fender.

Most of the stickers are different sizes and some are oddball shapes. What is the best way to put them on?

Thanks,

David Cole

I dont have any real help on figuring out where to put them... BUT. The first thing I would do is go thru your IHRA/NHRA magazine and find the contingency sponsor list for the bracket finals and make sure to use the stickers you have from those people first. It would be a shame to sticker it up and not use all that you ahve and find out you left off 5 or 6 that are contigency sponsors and used 5 or 6 that werent.

Now that I think about it, maybe use some scotch tape on the corners of the stickers to try several different placements of them before actually sticking them down.

I don't know if it will help you or not, but also take a peek at Tony's Capri and MM for layouts. We TRY to do ours tastefully yet stratigicly as possible.
