Pro-Line FlipSide Graphics inner body decals

Are you sick of that same old paint job? Is that pre-painted body becoming too popular amongst fellow hobbyists? Or, do you just not have the time to spend on detailing out that concourse winning paint job? If any of these are the case and you want to look like a master painter while still have time to do “real wrenching” on your RC car, then all you need is a Pro-Line Flipside Graphic Kit.
Design to fit today’s hobbyists needs, Flipside Graphics provide you with the perfect compromise between time, money and customization. The inner body graphics are made of a super-durable yet ultra-versatile material making installation a breeze for beginners to advance hobbyists. They conform to just about any of today’s 1:10 size bodies (see ease of application chart for full detail). In just a matter of minutes, one Flipside Graphics and one color of lexan safe spray paint gives you a multi-colored, customized body.

When you’re ready to be an original—an innovator in body paint styling, and say you painted it in just a matter of minutes, then you’ll want to pick-up a set of Flipside Graphics kit from Pro-Line…saving you time, money, and making you look good all at the same time.


Features:
· Installation instructions included
· Ease of application chart included
· Made from super-durable material that resists peeling and chipping
· Various Pro-Line logos included

Looks like copies of the Orion inner decals(some of them).
Has anyone tried to install Orion inner decals? They are a ROYAL PAIN.
Too sticky, wont move, bubbles are very hard to get rid of.
If they apply easy, great. If they apply like the Orion brand, forget it. The cool Orion decals were never available-hopefully Pro-Lines will be. I still can't get the new F-150 Maxx body... All these new products come out and it takes six months to actually see them.
IMO

Ya, HobbyTownUSA's suck. They're the biggest(most locations) around here. Piss poor management in most of them. There is another lhs that doesn't stock, but always orders promptly for me. I try to give the local lhs's a lot of my biz vs. mail order. But I use Tower also.

Yeah .. Same here. And if they don't carry it, they can order it and get it in like 4 days.

You guys are lucky. My LHS is 2 hours away. Anyway, I really like these decals. I might try the flame ones or some of the weird design ones. They seem to look more custom and original.

Explain your technique then repete. They didn't just fall on your body bubble & wrinkle free. Especially on compound curves. Fill us(me)in, would ya?
I didn't try the water thing Steve-I wasn't sure if water & the adhesive would 'agree' with each other.
I FINALLY got the new PL F-150 body today!

I'll stop with this post, but Orion INNER decals are not a snap. Are you confusing outer with inner decals? They are so sticky(not like outside decals at all) that they grab and do not release very well at all.
Anyways, I'm glad you had good luck with yours...
The PL designs do look good though.

yes they are very sticky...what u do is mark points on the outside of the body with a marker on where u want the ends of the stickers to be...so when u apply the inner decal...it should go in on the first shot..ive heard that sopy water or windex can help..but never tried it
