I’m sure this has been covered, but I looked and can not find it. Does anyone make a good set of red lower door letters? I have order them from 2 different venders, both were junk. One was even the wrong red, very dark red. Thanks in advance.

https://tvdvinyldecals.com They have the larger letters for the liftgate and the small ones for the lower doors in multiple colors.

I put them on over a year and a half ago and this is their second winter and they still look like they were put on yesterday.

The red is what shows. The adhesive is supposed to be on the other side. I had zero luck in getting anything to peel off.
Just Junk.
I sent them an Email and they did respond, asking for pictures??? They are using UPRs picture in their advertising. Let’s see how this goes.

I'd let UPR know they are doing that. Those look like someone cut out with a jigsaw.

Looks like they used the UPR letters for a template and used something like this to cut it out.

The UPR letters are the way to go. I only wish they offered them in Blue.

Update.
I sent them back and did get a refund. I sent the same pictures to UPR, they were very interested.
Everything else I have ordered has been good so far. Just need warm weather to install the ever growing pile of stuff.

What am I looking at here? These look like the adhesive is on the wrong side and poorly cut.
You picked up on that. All the letter’s except the Rs were red on the face side. I could not find an adhesive pull off film on either side. Just plain and simply JUNK. I think they just are banking on, at $20, no one will return them.

For someone who has absolutely no patience at all how hard are the UPR letters to put on?

Peel and stick, nothing to it.
