Decals That Set You Apart From The Rest In Perth!
Like badges, decals add a touch of style and story to a vehicle. Bumper stickers first arrived shortly after bumpers did, providing a place to add various messages including slogans, ads, and opinions. They offer a means of expression, as powerful and relevant today as ever.
The first dedicated bumper sticker came out in the early 40s, but eventually the durability and quality of vinyl became the preferred choice – and with it, decals.
Decals are images printed on thin vinyl sheets, allowing higher quality and more elaborate images to be installed on more areas of the vehicle. The classic cruisers and the hot rods of the 60s were covered in vibrant colours, including the flames that have become synonymous with the era.
You can place decals anywhere on the car, whether it be inside, outside, or on the windshields. Often, exposure to the elements meant decals would only last a few years, with rain, dirt and sunlight making them the first things on your vehicle to flake or peel away. To pay due homage, classic car restorations need brand new replacement decals.
Luckily for you, Rare Parts carries all kinds of decals for all types of vehicles, with modern printing technology meaning they last for years. From iconic slogans like Holden’s “Driving Australia’s Future” to engine decals signifying litre, power, or branding, we’ve got the decal you need to truly personalise your vehicle or revitalise that classic the authentic way.
Decal vs Sticker
It’s important to note that while all decals are stickers, all stickers are not decals. Decals generally have three layers and are printed in vinyl or clear polyester. More durable than traditional stickers, decals are designed and built for outdoor conditions, making them a longer-lasting solution.
A staple of the consumer car industry for many years now, racing stripes were at one point reserved only for the racecars at Le Mans (which is why they are also known as Le Mans stripes).
Many iconic Australian vehicles featured the stripes. Take the Ford Falcon: the 70s 351 GT through to the 2014 351 GT F both displayed the “go-faster” stripes with pride.
Do that Hemi or Windsor V8 engine justice with a factory-inspired decal confirming your vehicle’s status, power, and prestige.
Our decal kits make it convenient to add the finishing touches to your vintage automobile and have it looking like it just rolled off the assembly line.
The various components of your engine bay would most assuredly have had all kinds of stickers or decals attached from the factory, and a kit allows you to restore them all at once for the highest attention to detail.
We carry decal kits for iconic models from Holden, Ford, Chrysler, and various other makes.
