Aloha,

I am getting ready to start putting decals and badges on a LR3 SE. it’s pretty bare at the moment.
Wondering what recommendations people may have for their favourite decals and badges from around the globe?

Thanks in advance.

I've always been partial to the naked girl mud flaps but if that's not your thing, there's always Yosemite Sam.

Stickering up your vehicle just for the look seems silly. If you don't have an idea what decals you want to put on it already, then maybe you just don't put any on?
Any decals I've applied have been from places I've been, products I use, or something I like and have a story about if someone asks.

Aloha, not many places one can travel to on and island.

Although I was asking more about the different decals and badges of people round the globe not just places you have been.

Asking other people for their opinions on your personal decision to decorate your truck strikes me as an odd question. I'm not a fan of plastering my truck with stickers, but that's just my taste. Each to his own. I have four stickers on my truck, each with a special meaning to me:

  • a ZA white oval nationality sticker because I used to live in South Africa.
  • a small sticker in my rear quarter window from the Land Rover Owners Club of KwaZulu Natal, South Africa, because I am a current member.
  • a Sani Pass sitcker because I've driven up it a few times and had some good adventures in Lesotho.
  • a Union flag because I am a British citizen. (Fun fact - it's only called the Union Jack when it's flown at sea)
I think any car plastered with manufacturer's logos looks like shit. Even race cars that are covered in logos. I don't care what oil you use, I can see you have aftermarket accessories bolted on - I don't need a sticker to tell me that. That crap looks like a rolling billboard. The only extensive stickering I find halfway interesting is when people put the flags of the countries they've driven through on their vehicles. That tells a more meaningful story than what products you want to advertise. Do whatever you want. It's your truck.

Aloha and thank you for your feedback.

Just curious, how can you tell what aftermarket parts are on this truck from so far away? Moreso because this is stock SE. First sold here on Honolulu in 2006 and has not left the island.

I'm not talking about your truck in particular, except where I say you should do whatever you want. I've never seen your Rover. If I ever find myself back in Hawaii again I'll consider myself lucky. My comments were about Rovers in general, hence the phrase "Any car..." If that wasn't evident from my original post, hopefully this clarifies it.

I’m very certain that would be too many laughs including my own. That would be the sight, driving to the beach with my family!

I might agree to something like that if I got a second Land Rover.

Well what do you know, the R in Rover on my hood badge fell off today on the way to work. Perhaps punishment for above snarky comment

I have just the thing to replace that with. Send me your address and I will send it to you.
