which look for this vinyl wrap job?

using a picture posted by jebiruph, I worked up a couple looks I think I like. wanted to see what you all thought.

I am partial to the large white lettering on the tank at this time.

2nd one, large white lettering suits the theme.
Didn't like any of the others unfortunately, sorry.
First one looks like it's out of MASH

well I was an army medic, and I love mash

but yes the large white looks better to me.

the photo originally had a stock black front fender but I think the green looks better and matches the theme.

I like the large white letters of the second one. Nice I always thought of Stroms as kind of a do all go all Jeep.

That's neat!
A Japanese military MASH jeep bike.
Unit numbers on the front & rear fenders and the shovel & axe hung off the left would complete the job.
Be sure to post before & after pictures of the olive-drab V-project.
Here's the template...

my pannier boxes already come with military style footman loos used to tie equipment to the vehicle. just not sure about the axe and shovel. has any military bike ever had those?

Now, a rifle case like the mt500 diesel, that i could see. I will have to do a bit of research.

The second one looks more authentic to the theme to me.

Can ya' do anything to get that .50 cal effect on the bike?
It would add a nice touch, even if it was only cosmetic.
