Stickers aren't bad.
I think th positioning could be a little better though. It looks like it's a little too "in your face" to people looking at it. Try putting it lower closer to the side skirts.
If not, even try putting them on the side skirt
Or your rear passenger window

Your frozen VO is a beautiful color. You don't want decals to take the enter of the attention.
In the end, just my opinion

Love the frozen VO paint job. IMHO, VO is a hard color to match in terms of having any other colored accents( stickers/ calipers / rims etc) apart from black..

Maybe you can try a subtle approach. Use a gloss transparent sticker to make the decals appear gloss vo on a matte vo surface.

I've done this on my matte gray car b4 and use gloss film for the decals. Subtle without having to introduce another color.

Try to get some pics up later. Nice car BTW.

Cheers!

Is that a custom clear coat or a wrap? If wrap, what brand and color number is that?

On the stickers location, agree with e82m_van to keep em low or closer to and around the wheel wells like you have now. But what the heck, its your car, go crazy, do what ever YOU like!

Meh, its a personal preference I suppose.. if you wanna showoff the bits and peices you have from each company its a nice touch but otherwise no ones sponsering you ... IMO its nicer to have a clean looking car without any hastle looking stickers disrupting the car's bodylines.

I would put them on the front quarter panel starting at the lowest point and working your way up. Need more pics of the car and this frozen wrap job too!

I have to agree with this. If you really want to promote your sponsors, I'd use the rear window for that.

As some indicated: if you want to keep those decal tattoos, lower these a bit further down, closer to the horizontal line above the side skirt (not exceeding the highest point of the wheel arch and not on the wheel arch itself).

Discreet alternative: inside the rear window.

Looks both weird and stupid to me. Unless those companies were paying me to advertise them on my car I would remove them. That being said, it's all a matter of personal taste so do what you like.

The color of the car looks amazing.

I do not like your current sticker placement. I would limit the decals to the rear side windows. If you are really adamant about having your stickers over the VO, then the front fenders would be a better place. You can have them on the back part of the fenders and use your door line to line them up. Another spot is your side skirts. Look at the BMW 1m safety car.
