Default Quality of Brent Franker overlays?

Whats up guys? I just ordered some overlays from Brent Franker for my pewter T/A. Just looking for some people that have his products to speak up on the quality/durability of his products.

I would like to eventually get some emblempros onxy etched overlays, but trying to put the money else where right now.

I ordered an overlays for the front bird, the side door lettering, and the rear pontiac fill. Still debating whether or not I am going to delete the side Trans Am script or not. I like the look of it without the emblem and door moulding, but the car is a daily and I am afraid of getting door dings if I remove the moulding. I don't think I would be interested in just removing the lettering and not the molding either.

Not sure of the quallity of his stuff, but if you don't mind me asking, what was the cost for all that you ordered.

I have the Emblempros composite rear PONTIAC filler on my Pewter WS6 and it is bad ***. It's pricey, but the quality is great. I'm probably going to hold out and get the side TRANS AM and front bird filler composite emblems from Emblempros, but I know 4th Circle Designs sells them as well and I could get everything for like $40.00.

Yeah, the emblem pros is very nice. Bowever, when I go through them I am going to get the stainless line which is quite pricey. Through Franker I believe it was $35 total for everything. Front bird, side TA script, and rear pontiac fill. He also makes vinyl bird decals for the seat headrests. I was iffy on them at first, but he sent me a photo via email. Looks very nice IMO

I've ordered from him several times and they have all been very good. Nothing but positive experiences. You'll be pleased.

Brent Franker rocks....he sent me a replacement set of headlight gears years ago when one of the originals failed.

Quality sales.....

Ive always heard great things about him. I contacted him once about making me a custom RAM AIR sticker like the stocker to go over my SLP lip, his prices were more than reasonable. Hes more of an enthusiast than a business. Just likes helping out the cause..

Brent is a great guy and puts out great stuff. I have had several overlays from him on different cars over the years and have always been pleased.

Brent's quality and service rock.

Stainless everything is overkill, sometimes simple contrast is all that's needed.

Brent's quality and pricing are great, but don't get in a hurry or you may be disappointed. Remember, his prices are so good because vinyl is a hobby for him and his real job can delay order fulfillment. Your patience will be rewarded.
