Anyone out there used/run across dry transfer decals as opposed to water-slides?

 

I have been working on a IMSA Mustang, whose decals have seen better days.  Many were totally unusable. 

 

Anyway, in rummaging through my stash to find appropriate (if not accurate) sponsorship decals, I happened upon a set of dry transfer decals I had bought and used with my son on his pinewood derby car last year.  So I said why not. 

 

Below is a pic, where the VHT logo is actually a dry transfer.  I have to say it was stupid easy to use and very thin (no visible ridge).

 

The only downside I can perceive is that the color does not seem to be as vibrant (in this case the black isn't as black...).  I dont' know if this is indicative of dry transfers in general or just the set I have.

 

Thoughts?

 

While I am at it, i figured I would post a pic of my project so far.  I ended up painting the red body accents as the decals were totally gone.  Still needs some detailing and a spit shine.
