I was hoping to have it printed by the end of next week. Especially the roof so I can get it and everything attached to it back in place. I'll gladly wait around if you want to help me out.

I'm not necessarily stuck on this color scheme, but its what I was thinking would look good. The gray matches the color of the frame. The rest I honestly kind of copied from my road bike, which looks pretty sweet in person (but not so great in this picture). I'm open to anything, really.




I've looked at so many pictures of cars, trucks, sand rails, boats, and everything else trying to find one I like, I'm so fucking sick of it at this point, I'm ready to just paint it all black. But I already tried that.




I think I liked it plain aluminum best out of anything I've seen so far.

That would be the official NASA Mars rover design?


Anyway- all of the proposed graphics scream 'I live in the 80's and still dress like Miami Vice'

The flames are backwards. Would look killer when you are backing up.

Yes they are. I pointed that out to them. I hated the flames anyway, so there was no reason to fix that concept.

I'm thinking an image of a white jeep on the side would be nice.

checkers.

Buggies have odd "lines" that should be matched to it when being applied so there is a comfortable "flow" of the rig. Nothing I see so far works.

Maybe even a fading checker pattern or one that looks as though it's being pulled apart or stretched in a front to back flow.

You need some vertical lines.....all the horizontal "stripes" are gonna look odd on it.

my love for BMW's started at an early age. I had different model kits of BMW's including the 2002Tii with the backwards chin spoiler decal.

my favorite of that era was the '76 3.0 CSL "bat mobile" painted by frank stella. followed by the 320i by Lichtenstein.


that m3 is pretty sweet - stationary motion thing going on there - or perhaps my old eyes are just getting older and causing some vertigo :p

Here's one idea. I know it's only hand drawn but I like to go that route first being it only takes a few minutes to do. It should only take a couple hours to draw out on Illustrator.
The lighter area that looks like dots was thinking tread plate pattern.??

For what they charge for wraps I'm kinda surprised they can't give you an image of what it would look like on your vehicle.

I like the one tyzstuff just posted a lot more than any other one so far.
