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.

Love the color. I agree with putting them on the rear side windows or in the traditional "roll call" style and placement on the front fender near the door.

VO is unique enough on its own, Frozen VO even more-so. The color is fantastic just let it do its thing... no stickers needed.

I know. If I recall, in the states I know Avery has matte clear but haven't seen it done on a car. Yours looks pretty sweet!

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!
pics as promised. placement may need some thought thou... cheers!

Your Frozen VO is a very special car, don't ruin it with tacky stickers.

I don't like stickers or decals, the car is awesome as it is, but that's my opinion.
