    research for decal stickers for a 2012 Nickel

    Paint job is not the best I've seen, kind of "soft". Really doesn't take much to lose little zones and scratches real easy ... so before the Nickel becomes an extinct specie I asked SC about a complete decal / sticker set for when I repaint my bike. They don't have any and don't carry the part. Didn't get an answer about a copy of the digital files ...
    My Nickel is the green under sticker version (on white frame).
    Has anybody worked on these? Like stencilled the whole thing and made a Illustrator or Photoshop copy? So this would be the green Ni on the back of the seat tube, the "Nickel" flame on either side of the top tube (but goes down under and meets there), the 3 Santacruz (2 black on either side of the downtube and one green under the downtube) and the 2 APP for the rear arms. Or does anybody know where I can get a complete set?
    Thanks for your help.
    Oh and by the way, it really is a great bike, loving mine every time I go out. Just came back from 15km, mainly down hill, rocky, stream crossing, wide track, singletrack trail. The Nickel is reall a nice trail bike

    Ok guys there is hope...

    I remember a while back considering a Tallboy LTc after I demoed one but I hated the orange and black. Then a guy on here posted an LTc that he took and changed the color to white. I saved the pic because I thought it looked outstanding! I looked for the post everywhere and I can't find it. I am going to post a pic of this guy's Tallboy here and hopefully he will chime in and steer us in the right direction about his experience.

    I also saw them do a Tallboy Carbon Monster energy bike, all decals were green and even the fox fork decals were green too. I've even seen them do fox fork decals orange to match the orange and black Tallboy LTc. Here is the link to the shop. They are in Arizona but I remember they told me they ship their decal kits. I called just to verify and they still do this and they said they can do almost any bike but usually do Santa Cruz bikes. Hope fully this helps you all. I know how it is when you don't like the way it looks.

    That is the cool thing about MTBR, you need help and have a question you just ask and some one has usually an answer. I don't know about you but I think this dudes LTc looks really good with this decal kit and it look like it came this way stock.

    That is very nice! I want some red graphics for my white Nickel to match the red parts that I have on the bike. I was thinking to have the graphics printed on white vinyl so it will cover up the existing graphics. And something on top of the top tube, like that bike, would be nice.

    You can always take a photo of the current decals and have someone photoshop them into a digital image. If I had the skills I'd do it for ya

    Could probably get most of the art work off the SC site.

    Sort of read that the "stickers" were watertransfers and not vinyl
