For example, if I was in a hurry to get gas or something and some kids wanted a pic with the car I didn't like being a dick and saying no. Granted for the majority of the time I was running a race exhaust setup complete with fireballs, when the novelty wore off it was more of a beating than anything....which sucks because I really liked the way it looked. I'm sure this is what it's like driving an exotic, but most exotics aren't driven daily.

I have the opportunity to have it single color wrapped for a promo-type wrapping video on a new line of Avery vinyl which I am thinking about going through with. I know there are 12-15 colors, I just haven't seen the colors yet. I'd like it to be bright and eye catching, just not a race car.

If that doesn't pan out, I'll be having the front resprayed to get rid of my rock chip collection. If this is the case, my mirrors will be wrapped in red. Now that the top and interior are all black, not brown, I have a whole other world of possibilities for my next 'look.'
That's a shame, it looked fantastic.
Next up, Martini livery, ala Williams-Martini F1!

Sorry, I am not anything close to a photographer... so no fancy settings or locations. Washed an waxed the Porsche at my parent's house a few weekends ago (my dad has a bunch of professional detailing stuff). Posted it in my other topic but figured I'd drop one or two here...






Also, enjoy a pic of our newest vehicle (sold the buggy)... our 10' Box Truck. This will be for racing

Just got some new wheels and tires on the Jeep. And I just found a nail in one of them this morning.

They make rivet brushes for doing vinyl wraps. Makes it much easier!

*This pic is flipped so it made for a better comparison to a 'before' pic...if you're wondering why the sign in the background is backwards.
