    6 meters of vinyl, 3 colours, Red Black and White and a computer vinyl cutter.

    Sharks teeth cut, just need to get some time to wash car and stick them on.

    Sneak peek of the car. More to come.



    I had cut out the white section for the background. Jim, my nephew and studying graphic design pointed out it will look like a big sticker.

    Using the undertones of the car does make it look a little a little more subtle and purposeful.

    We stuck it on at 10:30 pm last night in the light of a 18Watt light 6 meters away. Looking at it in the day light I can see a lot of rework.

    Folks,

    I need some help.


    I am looking for Aviation and air-force stickers. Squadrons, manufacturers and service companies.

    The Volvo will have bumper stickers plastered over the side windows as part of a recreation of an airport air side car.



    So I need high resolution images I can have printed onto Vinyl.







    As i know nothing of aviation I wonder if those that do, can link me to aviation logos and branding please?





    You get the idea.

    Dave

    As this car is a "Folly" or "tribute" style of a car that never existed I am open to ideas.

    Part of the vision is to make the car look like it once "belonged" to an airport. To make it look like a post cold war air side runabout for crew or services. I am thinking for more like maintenance crews hence engine and fuel type stickers.

    I need to add reflective stripes (like mine vehicles) and I have no idea where to buy that.

    I have to resize the sharks teeth and the bonnet artwork is still a vision in my nephews dreams but I know I can press on with the other items.

    I reckon do the livery of a Swedish Gloster Gladiator, sans swastikas, or Saab 29 Tunnan.

    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe, and from this side only! The flight of a half-man, half-bird. Dinosaurs nuzzling their young in pastures where strip-malls should be. Cookies on dowels. All those moments lost in time; gone like eggs off a hooker's stomach. Time to die.

    This just popped up on my FB feed this morning.

    As an aside, some VERY cool photos from CNCpics, really should post more of them.

    So, does anyone have a good paint code or source for a nice matt olive drab?

    Got a project in mind.

    I'd be curious to know what happens when the suspension tires to compress on either end.

    Edit - I approve of cab colour.

    Front axel is a fair way forward and the rear is back a bit to. As for the tray as you see it is how it stays
