Default shark's teeth vinyl wrap

I'm looking to get a vinyl wrap of shark's teeth for my rocket. Anyone know where I can find or have these made? I've found some premade decals but I don't it would work to wrap around the air intake.

Pretty much want it to look like this:

Bob, I am thinking about a checkerboard wrap using these guys:

I have no personal experience but their work on RV's around here look great.

They told me they could print and wrap any design I could come up with.

Have you tried Vince Frazier's son at Fly Boy acc.? He's up in your neck of the woods He made the vinyl for my WWII Russian camo paint scheme. Reasonable prices, and will work with you to get the results you want.

Pooner,

I met Scott Farnsworth of Aircraftwraps.com at Reno's PRS last week.

Super nice guy with a passion for this stuff.

Check him out.

Slick

Default Still searching for teeth that fit...

Hi All,

Does anyone know where I can get a set of teeth that fit the RV-7 IO360 cowling, or similar? I've looked at the links mentioned above and the closest I can find are the ones about 1/4 way down the page on:
http://www.military-graphics.com/badges3.html
My only concern with these, is that when the decal transitions from the side to the front of the cowl, the teeth will be bent down and will not match up in the middle. I remember seeing a set somewhere made for the standard (not rotary cowling), but I have not been able to find one since. Really not that keen to try and CAD one up from scratch.
Thanks for your help.
Tom.
