O... IC!

Think positive, no one else will have a paint job likes your Randy! (o;?

Find something in color along the lines of a Dry Red Wine when selecting pinstriping paint.

Here this will help out if you find the colors you got there... give me a few minutes and I'll get you some hex colors, only problem is I don't know how you'll convert those when you get to the paint store, but we can find you Internet colors!!

Well according to the chart there..I have an "Analogic" color scheme...

And it says Bright Red or Lime Green for accent...

That could be cool... :roll:

Well... I tried, but the only motor picture I had the angle was all wrong, and even after I twisted and turned, and stretched and skewed it, it still didn't look right!

But, yeah those colors do have potential! I knda like the way the color scheme all goes together there really!

The font used there would be "Calligrapher" Randy.

If he doesn't have it, send me an e-mail address to mail it too and let me know what operating system he's using. I'll send a copy of the font to him with directions on how and where to install it on his computer. It's really not tough to do, just have to get him to the right file to drop it in is all, and that of course varies dependent on operating system.

Copy this and print it out as well Randy, these are the Drop shadow settings I used on the font. He may notice a slight difference in the shadow I used on Squidd across the back of the machine, there given font size and light I stepped Distance up to 2px and changed the angle to -159. Just to bring it out better. Oh yes... should he inquire I was using Adobe Photoshop CS

And, if you want to outline them instead of drop shadow...

Cool....but I like the drop shadow better...

Been doing my stock cars and most other lettering that way...

I did notice a "little something" different with the Squidd..thanks for pointing that out, but I imagin in 3D (real Life) things will come out just slightly different than this "skewed" view...

He usually does a "mock up" for approval prior to printing, so I'll check that out...

Yeah it's a little tougher to do it on a picture like that Randy, because you have only the light you have there, on any given part of that picture to work with. Sometimes you simply have make adjustments to make it pretty!

All of lettering has a touch of outer glow to bring it off the mower a little better, because the light isn't real bright. The outer glow's essentially a contrast adjustment when applied in that fashion. In real life you wouldn't have that, you'd roll it out in front of the garage where the light was better!  (o;?
