Finally came, the actual sheet varies on the top right from what is show.  troube is, while the detail and quality isnt great, like the 2 items each side of the rear bumper, the NYPD that is on the front doors, is the wrong size AND doesnt slant enough.

Taken up a displute via ebay, i got 2 of these sheets, and 2 NYPD MU sheets.  I need now to find a correct decal sheet....

i got hit with a $12 handling fee with the mail co. here.  i wasnt so much bothered about the $7 tax, it was the handling fee that really got me.....esp for the poor decals.

I have taken lots of pics of the real thing, while holding up the decals so you can see the horrendous error. 

This is the sheet http://www.ebay.co.u...984.m1439.l2649

Im low on photo bucket space but all the pics i have in a FB album of the whole build

Awesome. Courtesy is misspelled on decal. Cut and paste is so hard.

This is a work in progress sheet we are doing, it had been tested on the Impala but i noticed a slight error, and i mean slight, so that has been fixed.  I should be getting my hands on it in the next few days to test it on my ChargerNYPDDECALSaaawatermarked.png

Thanks, a lot of work has gone into it so far and should be 100% right in a month or 2. I need to test it on a few things first once my friend whos printing them sends it me.   I have completed a scratch built push bar as used  by the NYPD, the most common of the 2 i have seen on hundreds of images.

I started a 2nd Charger, to use as a test bed for new centre consoles im making, roof liner mounted electics and dash board radars etc.   I planned it being a SC HP which has the silver wheels but the kit ones are so bad.  just flat and not angled 5 spokes like the real thing.
