Default Decal Swap

I just finished my first airbrushed body tonight. As I was cutting vinyl and looking for just the right decal, I had a thought. What if we all traded decals like baseball cards? Well, maybe not JUST like bball cards, but something like this. I know I get tired of the monotonous "pro-line" and "protoform" stickers that come with the bodyies I buy. I have a few cool decals from local guys and a few from esc's and other things I have bought but I usually want more than 2 unique decals to do a body right. Heres the idea. You post saying you're in on this and then we all pm each other to see if someone else will trade x for y. Then throw em in the mail with a stamp, and voila! You can diversify your decal collection and make a pen pal in the process. And even if someone stiffs you its not like you lost anything valuable.
Ill be the first to join. Heres what I got . . .

Big:
AE
Team Associated
TRC tires

Small:
Team Brood
RPM
MIP

LRP
Blue is better
TC4
IRS

I don't really think its a crap idea, and I also don't think that putting in a forsale area will help things either. On the RCTech Forum home page there is a Topic regarding painting, graphics and things like that. That's the best stuff for this, and the most interested people will see it there.

I was definately kidding, I like the idea. I am actually having a racing team logo done for my business (www.bigslicksoftware.com) and when that is complete I will gladly trade.

Anyone going to Mike's for the robot wars?
