    I am putting a Shiva in my sister's car soon and would like to add some color to the dustcap in the form of a Tazmanian Devil cartoon. Her Monte Carlo came with pace car and Taz logos affixed and I'd like to continue the theme in the sub.) Is there a good way to do this without affecting the performance of the speaker too much? Perhaps a store-bought sticker "painted" with some epoxy? Ink-jet printer paper with same treatment (yuk)? Painting the logo on myself or professionally? Other, likely better, ideas out there?

    Help is appreciated!

    Pick the option that weighs the least. I would be very cautious when using epoxy or other esoteric glues (it may combine with the glue used to attach the dust cap and weaken the bond).

    Good call on the glue, hadn't thought about that.

    The curvature of the dustcap will make it difficult to stick a sticker on there without it wrinkling.

    Try using a decal like a temporary tattoo. This would be more like what the manufactures use for there logos. The sheerness may help to avoid wrinkles.
