I found a photo of a CJ windscreen online, more direct on to get a better idea of the dimensions needed.

Mocked up something myself this afternoon, still working on it.

Does Mitsubishi have an official font they use?

Nice to hear man. Feel free to share. ;) I also have now designed the "right" cut to size. So hopefully it'll be a direct stick and no cutting involved. :)

I just looked up Mitsubishi font and found a free download. It had to be bastardised to get the current mitsu logo, but its a good base to start from.

Tried it in a few colors and not finished with the art work or final curve.

Also figured out if its less than 15cm tall it should avoid the sensors.

My only concern is how it will last with the wiper action?

Thought I would share what I've done while I still adjust artwork for the windscreen. This is hand knifed but I'll get it done by a plotter next week. Just a trial fit. ;) Thinking about doing something on the sides of the wing... but maybe too much..

Those cutouts cost around $35 on eBay, not sure of there quality.

Here is what I did with some plastic-dip last month.

Doesn't stand out too much :)

I think it would be almost pointless doing it in black for me, even flat or carbon look unless it was yellow carbon.

I've seen those ones on ebay.... thats what gave me the idea for the side bits. I'm no sucker... ;) wouldn't buy any stickers online, when I can design and get it cut myself. Hahaha

What I've attached pictures of have been hand cut from a 3M carbon look vinyl, not bought ebay ones. ;) Its all I had on hand, that was enough.

I'll end up getting these done in a gloss black I think, but I may get a set in matte/flat black also...

Plastidip looks mint though.. Good job man.. ;)

I've got some black CF wrap but couldn't find a pattern to cut it out.
If I could I might get some in yellow and try that as I know the plasti-dip doesn't last that long.

Mitsubishi should give these away free.

Great free advertising for them.

Placed under different item.

How the hell did it get here?
