So, the previous owner of my Scrambler bought it in the mid 90s (10-15 years old).

He didn't like the white lettering on the hood, so he peeled it off... well, the paint had faded a little bit in that amount of time, and "SCRAMBLER" is still visible when the lighting is correct:

I've thought about replacing the decal, but I'm not sure I want to go with white.

There's a full decal set that I really like, but I'm not sure it's worth applying to old paint:

Oh well, I guess this post doesn't really have a point, other than that I think the "ghost" decal is kind of cool.

Have a great weekend! :cheers:

It doesn't take long for paint from that era to fade. I removed "Scrambler" from my hood within minutes of getting it home in 1982. If you get in in just the right light, the ghost is still visible today...though not as visible as yours.

I say put the decals on it that you like. Your paint looks pretty good to me. Imo your paint doesn't have to be perfect to have a nice looking decal set on it. 👍
