Decorating roof rack fairing?

My dad gave me his Yakima roof rack and some bike rails since he wasn't using it. I like it and outside the obvious utility, I like the way it looks on my car. I know a lot of people use the wind fairing as a place to plaster stickers about what or where they ride. I'm wondering how you have or would decorate your roof rack fairing? I'd like to have some vinyl cut and add a slogan or something. Right now I'm thinking of borrowing the Safety is Sexy slogan of "You'd look hotter in a helmet". I'm open to other ideas as well.

► How did you decorate the fairing on your roof rack? (Got pics?)

► What are some ideas on how to decorate mine?


Me, installing the rack in a parking lot.

I've spray painted fairings in the past and I've customized them with vinyl stick-ons I had made by a sign company.
