    I really like that paul, can you let me know a few more details of how this was prepared, designed and applied…?

    Nice car but could be doing replacing the horrible front orange indicators for some lovely clear ones..

    Just so happens i’ve got a set in stock… 🙄 🙄 😛 😆

    basically like this

    took pics of car and converted them to line art in illustrator

    spewed up the design in illustrator

    it was cut using a dual processor G4 Mac and cutline software

    and then carefully thrown over the car and stuck on where it fell !!!!!

    car was then crashed and because we always put wacky designs on them the customer has to come back (sales technique)

    Only kidding they come back because they love us !!!

    Thats that really, onr thing I have sussed, never go overboard on the front of a rally car as youll end up doing it again and again and again

    Nice job as usual Paul, can I ask why you converted the pic to line art ? was it to make the file smaller or so you could use it again but change the colour ?
    I’ve done a few cars which we couldnt get outlines for and have just scaled up the digital pics of the car but we just put the graphics over the pictures to show the customer.

    quote Paul Davenport:

    Only the front? You must have some pretty good rally drivers over there.

    (Must be for when they need to get over the pennines in a hurry)

    Nice job. I love the roof especially, a much overlooked area for a car, and prime adverising spot on a rally car ‘cos they end up on their sides so often 😀

    we do the line art to keep on file and suppliment the vehicle outline files from that guy that used to come on here !!!!

    we do quite a lot of rally cars so its always nice to have line art for the customer
