Added more vintage water slide decals to the 1962 Shasta

Not much new happening here. I'm still clearing brush and dead trees in the back yard. Here's a photo showing some more progress on the decals I'm gradually adding to our camper's windows.
I bought a big lot of vintage water slide decals on that auction site. Some decals didn't transfer very well, but I like the imperfect aged look anyway. I keep a tarp on the camper in winter - the yellow rope you see in the lower corner is attached to the tarp. I'm glad I didn't remove the tarp yet, we actually had a dusting of wet snow overnight.
Here are some closeups, sorry the focus was off on the first couple. I had the flash off, but the glare and reflection were a problem. (You can see the photographer's reflection behind the decal.)
The Texas decal seemed to go on OK, but after it dried the longhorn graphic looks like it got blasted by a rifle.
Overall, I'm really loving the way these give the camper a vintage look, just what I wanted. They look like they've been on there forever. Now my problem is where to stop, I still have more decals and more windows. I'm saving a few good ones to put on the Comet station wagon, but I want to wait to do that when the car is back together. I'm hoping that will be sometime this year.
