I can't comment on the delays you guys are experiencing but I've used Rick's decals for my last two builds and am very happy with the quality. In many ways, I like them better than Slixx decals.

The first set I used were indeed very nice.
The last set had some issues but nothing that could not be worked around.
Now it is just a matter of communication for me.
If he would just respond I am sure we could work things out and I would be placing more orders with him.
I am wondering if he isn't having printer problems and is just selling off good inventory until he can get it fixed.
Just guessing, and if that is the case a simple email would let us all know what is going on instead of creating all this bad mojo.

I wasn't going to post about this when it happened, but after reading this I will. I ordered some decals from Decals By Lucas a few months ago. After a month they did not show up, so I e-mailed him about it. No response. Paypal gives you 45 days to make a claim, so I waited until the last minute to give Rick full benefit of the doubt before submitting the claim. After the claim was made I finally got a NASTY e-mail from Rick saying he had sent the decals. I don't know whether he did or he didn't, but if he had responded to my original e-mail I would have taken his word for it and not filed a Paypal claim. And the e-mail he did send was completely unprofessional and cost him a customer.

The decals are already coated with Testor's Decal Bond. You can clear coat them after application if desired but it is not necessary.

if they are already coated how come the color comes off and do they all tear so easy

I've only used one set. but I was happy enough with them to order more.
Are they slixx quality? , imo , No

The one set I used had some cracking during the install ,,,but considering some of the subject matter you have no other choice ,,i'm good.

I ordered several more sets about a week ago , they haven't shown up yet. but as long as they do in a timely fashion,( 3 to 6 weeks ) and I'm good

I always clear aftermarket decals with Crystal clear acrylic from Krylon.
I have had to many set of $10.00 decals off ebay fall apart as I was using them.
It is a easy and cheap way to make sure the colors do not bleed or rip while putting them on.
I use the same stuff to coat the decals I make.

Well I`m still waiting for my decals from Rick sence July. And when he responce to me everytime he said he just put them in the mail. Everytime its a different story with him. Doesn`t do good for the business thats for sure. I think Paypal should exstend there 45 days to alittle longer things do happen in live that we have no control over. But don`t lie about that there in the mail when they are not. All I want is my decals that I ordered.

A little update.
It is not looking good. I even sent him a request for my money back through paypal and no response.
I have been getting other emails from people with inside information that leads me to believe it is a lost cause.
Rick is the first vendor I have ever had just take the money and run.
That being said I would have Decals by Lucas should be avoided.

He had a blow up a while back on another forum, (that I will not discuss here) and pretty much said he was done yada yada.......
Not too sure what it was all about but I think he may be going through some things and maybe not checking the website or emails.
For now I suppose it in the persons best interest to avoid his products. Shame as he was the only one that made the stocker decals
he did and I need another set for my 57 150.

It angers me soooooo much how these individuals can take money knowing they are going down ???? It has happened to me on several occasions and I have litterally lost around $2000. At times I may take a little longer than I hope but I ALWAYS send the product and at the VERY least keep customers up to date if there is an issue. Paul, I do stockers, I don't pump out pages and pages of choices but the product speaks for itself in accuracy and quality which I pride myself on.
