Gary,

Could you give me an idea on pricing on doing something like this? PM me the info if you could. We might be interested in having some of these made up for club stickers Production run would be pretty limited, couple hundred maybe depending on price.

OK, I set up the vinyl sticker bezel to look more authentic. Here are some samples.

SAMPLES 1 AND 2
The very first sample below is almost an exact replica of the classic bezel, with the 146.460 in the middle. I also tried it with RISING SUN in the middle rather than the frequency.




The above stickers would be black vinyl on a white vehicle. What would the stickers look like in white vinyl on a black car? I'm glad you asked:




SAMPLES 3 AND 4
Next up, I tried changing the words at the top of the bezel while maintaining the look of the authentic type face. Take a look.



And the inverse:



SAMPLES 5 AND 6
I wanted to see what it looked like with RISING SUN 4X4 CLUB spelled out. And then I turned the bezel upside down.



And here's what it would look like in white vinyl:




SAMPLE 7
Perhaps you've said to yourself, "Self, what improves everything? Why, the TEQ logo, naturally."

If these were made and given out to club members for free, I would take one. I like sample 6.

It should be noted: you don't have to choose the color, just the design. The stickers can be cut on a variety of colored vinyl -- white and black for sure.

I'm leaning toward sample #5 but maybe with the TEQ added?

I like example number 3 but up-side-down. Which is easy with die cut just cut out the center and stick on the truck accordingly.

The up-side-down think is just a good inside LC owner joke IMO.

TEQ could be added inside a headlight circle? Again use it if you like or not. Stick it somewhere else. Basically only two designs would really need to be made. One with Rising Sun the other with Land Cruiser. From there you could apply it to your surface any way you wanted.
