Vinzdecals.com I had some made a few years ago. They do very nice work

This isn't exactly what you're talking about, but it is 3M vinyl wrap. Mine is from a guy on the Victory forum that set up a website with several patterns and color options (about 12,000 possible combinations). I did the installation and I'm pretty pleased with it. I've had 4 people ask me why I bought a new bike!

With what your describing, your imagination is the limit! Best of luck to you.

Not sure why I had so much trouble putting up this pic, but here's what my vinyl wrap looks like.

Re:decals from photos 6 Months, 3 Weeks ago  
Back when my sister had her own cleaning business, she bought a Stika machine that makes decals out of vinyl. Since I have the only computer left in the family with a printer port in it, I sorta ended up with it. I used it a lot to make graphics for my radio controlled cars I used to race. Last used it to make some Autobot stickers for my Camaro. Go onto e-Bay and search for vinyl cutters. Some big machines out there, mine only goes to 6x6 inches. (definitely an older unit!)

i put an order in to posterburner.com. $60 for mirrored images of my tank decals. 5" x 17". said he'd do the best he can. may not be perfect match. for $60, i took the chance. must have taken 100 pics. try taking a pic of your tank without getting reflections.

Paint it a matte finish like mine. No wax zone here.

Just for the heck of it send me picture of what you want. I have a vinyl cutter that goes to 15" wide. I just want to see what it comes out like.
