I saw the Testors Decal System in Walmart today: Anybody tried it?

Yep. Tried it. Liked it. Would use it again.
One caveat..... the decal sheets are VERY thin... to cover a dark/bright color expect to use two decals. I used it on the F&F supra in the tuner forum here are the results: http://www.xpphotoalbum.com/showphoto.php?photo=65657&size=big&password=&sort=1&cat=5999

I have it also, I too like it. Be sure to use the can of decal bonder, if
you don't your decal will smear. I also use this paper called "Invent It"
it's sort of thick and I think it's good for license plates. (it's a peel-n-stick paper).
I put Future on the tag and it makes it look a little more like metal. (imo)
I agree with crzyhorse, testors decal sheets are thin. You have to be careful
when you apply them. I'm sure there is other decal paper out there that is a little thicker,
I just haven't looked around for any, yet.

I was going to say the decals are too thick!

What about the decal paper available from Micro Mark? The sheets are bigger than Testors, I just haven't looked at the cost per sheet/inch of each one.
