Well, they are stickers, it's not that he's retarded or anything.
Just the alignment of it and stuff.

I've always thought about doing it myself. Let me know how it goes and where you are getting yours.

Ended up just buying it at Canadian tire after reading a similar post. I think it looks okay and I put it on without taking off the wheel. Its a little crooked but hard to tell from far away lol if I had more patience it couldve looked better. Best 6bucks I spent

it makes the job a lot easier if you have spools as well as a front and rear stand to lift the bike off the ground.
