    I didn’t like the old Grady white decal so I opted for the new style, found it on eBay and ordered. Note to self, took a month for the decals to arrive because it was coming from Serbia BB8DAF2F-34C2-40FF-905A-95891016F848.jpeg C90AEE42-DD1F-4827-AF09-24C7A2D33B87.jpeg 2A491BD5-51D8-4711-BFCD-59E00D5D914E.jpeg 6E90A923-0C41-4F58-B2F0-138BEA7B41EE.jpeg
