I think that was on the groupe A cars. Maybe an Aussie bloke will check in.

If someone can get a really good photo of one of these I could get some made up. I have a good friend who owns a plotter and cuts stuff for us all the time.

I am switching to WTA this summer so it would be a cool decal to have

oh haha, i think i have to let it custom made... :(

Getting a custom made one would likely be cheaper than finding it for sale anyway. I have a typeface that's very similar to that and could probably make a pretty good duplicate. Then just take the file to a printer to have them create a decal for it.

For example. I created this graphic for my car with that typeface. Looks pretty close, just italicized:

I could probably whip it up sometime tomorrow.

that looks very good ! what lettertype is that ?

ChrisD
06-13-2010, 04:51 PM
Just to clarify, that *IS* an OEM decal. However, I believe it was only on the Group A Rallye editions (AUS market) and possibly the Carlos Sainz. I don't remember seeing those on any RC's.

I bet if we had an Aussie member check they might find it.

But then again, reprods would probably be the cheapest option.

Anyone know the font? I can easily make this decal made for cheap

Fittingly, that typeface is called "MR2" - here's a download link:

yes your correct chrisD and john that was only on the GroupA cars in aussie, never came on any RC's anywhere else. I want one for my car once i get my hood

06-14-2010, 09:57 AM
I have that on my GrpA Rallye. I dont know if you can get them as a spare from toyota down here. Shouldnt be too hard to make though.

BTW just tested that font out in PS. While its close its not the same as the one on my car. The A's are very different and the E's are rounder. Pretty damn close though.

06-14-2010, 12:37 PM
damn, thats looks very nice man! by the end of the week i have a carbon CS hood...so i want a decal like that...i think i have to let it made.

maby i can get some more guys here in NL to buy those stickers ?

Carolina91GT-S
06-14-2010, 10:57 PM
I measured it. He has the font and is working on the file. He is busy on a big project at the moment but when I spoke to him he said he would get around to it tomorrow.

Thinking I am going to get a white one and a chrome one to see what looks best.

Cool, bring in more guys if you can. He does all kinds of stickers. He does almost any color you can think of and he does multicolored layered stuff too.

06-15-2010, 09:55 AM
I can go measure mine up. But as i said before the MR2 font file is different from the letting of the OEM sticker. I could probably get a better shot of mine to get an outline from. Otherwise use the MR2 font. It is pretty close
This one i used the MR2 font for,
http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc3/hs634.snc3/31810_407817083533_571728533_4278119_6371914_n.jpg

06-15-2010, 11:54 AM
that doenst look bad ! almost an exact copy...

@Carolina91GT-S:
Can i get one in WHITE and one in SATIN BLACK and just a BLACK one ? so 3 stickers :D

Carolina91GT-S
06-15-2010, 03:41 PM
Here is the 1st attempt with the MR2 font...I think it needs some tweaking...I think it needs to be bold and space the top line closer to the bottom line. Changes in progress, will repost soon.

We do not have Satin black material at the moment, will check into that more. Once we get this dialed in I plant to make some in Black, white, chrome, and black chrome to start with.

I measured that area on my hood bulge but really it was just a guess.

If GRPA4 can make a measurement of the original that would help to get it as close to authentic as possible. How long is the sticker? how tall is the sticker?

Bold and compressed and you should be nearly spot on. Just doing a brief cut in Photoshop shows this (roughly 50% compression):

Carolina91GT-S
06-15-2010, 06:36 PM
I did it with word in bold and brought the upper line closer tot he lower line and that looked really good. I'll show new pics once the revised version gets cut

06-15-2010, 10:17 PM
its seems that the ''TO'' in water TO air is a bit smaller then the other words? i think the ''to'' needs to be the same font size as the other words?

ChrisD
06-15-2010, 11:01 PM
The original "TO" looks a bit smaller, but I think Chris's "TO" is just a tad too small.

UndaGrwnD
06-15-2010, 11:17 PM
yep..you are right! original ''TO'' is a bit smaller

UndaGrwnD
06-16-2010, 01:09 AM
btw, i saw some stickers in GUN METAL, that colour should be very nice with my carbon hood i think..?

GrpA4
06-16-2010, 02:13 AM
i'll measure it up mate :)

Ok sticker is 20mm x 230mm. The Intercooler lettering is 10mm high.

BTW Undagrwnd my sticker is grey. Looks light in the pic buts its a darker grey than it looks.

I reckon a reflective grey would look pretty trick.

06-18-2010, 12:05 PM
any updates yet ?

Carolina91GT-S
06-18-2010, 12:49 PM
Here is another try with his new measurements. The "TO" needs to move just a hair closer to the "AIR", but all of the dimensions are correct according to the man in Australia

Let me know what you think, and I'll get them cut.

UndaGrwnD
06-18-2010, 01:20 PM
i like it! looks very nice Carolina91GT-S !

the ''TO'' needs to move a bit yes, and overall it looks nice...but the sticker it self looks bigger then the original, or is it because you are still testing it ?

i think your done almost...did you already know in wich colour you can get them ? GUN METAL perhaps ?

RyanD
06-18-2010, 05:07 PM
Looks great. Good work!

Carolina91GT-S
06-18-2010, 05:07 PM
Yeah we will get the "TO" placed correctly. That size is the exact same size as the original. I don't know why it would look bigger, there is no frame of reference in the photo. Maybe it is the paper it is stuck to that makes it look bigger? idk?

The rectangle of paper that the words are on is not part of the sticker. It is just something to put the words on so you can see it. The end result here is just the words on whatever you stick it to. Vinyl works like this....You will get the words prealigned and sandwiched between the rectangular sticker back(bottom) and the transfer tape(top). First you peel off the opaque sticker back bottom so you then have the words held in place by the translucent transfer tape (will look backwards). You place the words where you want them on your car or tool box or whatever with them still on the transfer tape and apply squeegee like pressure to stick it all in place. Then you peel away the transfer tape and you are left with just the words.

Rather than go by any one individual color, I will be posting a complete list of colors that we can make it in. maybe even have that up today. Looks like we will sell these for $7.50 shipped in the US if anyone is interested. If you are outside the US then I will have to work out mail chrages with you individually.

i want 6781M Matte Black and 6771M Matte White.

Is there a way you can get the decal that the rc/cs had on there intercooler? The toyota logo and "celica"? I would buy two in one 6771M Matte White and one in chrome!

06-18-2010, 10:01 PM

Carolina91GT-S
06-18-2010, 10:11 PM
My WTA intercooler doesn't actually have a decal. It is painted everywhere other than the logo so the aluminum shows through there. I will try to get a decal for that too, I was thinking about it myself anyway. This vinyl should handle the temps on the outside of the wta fine.

I will be PMing those who want these within the next day. I will be doing them in batches by the day rather than each person separately so if you don't here from me for a day just be patient. If you don't hear from me for 2 days then follow up with me.

Not trying to get off topic but look at you hood and then look at a stock RC hood. The dimensions of the buldge/ hole and the angle and size of the side ornaments. There completly wrong....still a nicely made hood. Just not accurate to oem where as the VIS is..
