Default Attn haters! Get you hater pants on!

Correction... get "YOUR" haha

So after playing around with some plastidip for awhile... I started playing around with photoshop and came up with this. We have a huge vette car show in september and I am thinking about trying this out on my vette. Gonna run through a few practice runs on my durango before I try it on the vette... but I think it would be a fun project to try and a cool way to get some crazy looks from people.

This is just a quick photoshop job and I still have a few things I need to do before I start this project... just wanted to stick it on CF to see what you guys think. I know some of you (EDIT ) with different tastes will not like the look but I thought it would be something new to try.

The "paint" is plastidip and can simply be peeled away without leaving any residue on the car. The taping and painting will be a pain in the butt... this stuff dries to an almost rubbery type of paint. So if you tape everything off, let it dry, and then try to peel the tape.... it will pull everything off with the tape. With this pattern you have to do small portions at a time. Almost as soon as you spray you have to remove the tape leaving it wet. It will be a slow going process....

I love the yellow and love the C6Rs so I wanted to sort of play off the C6R theme and come up with something unique. Yeah, its a bit over the top but I dont plan on running it like this forever. Its temporary and just planned for the large Corvette show we have coming up in September. After that she will probably go back to Black/Yellow. Plus who buys a vette to be subtle? Go big or go home boys...

Hhahahahahah I love CF... I think this is the second time Ive stirred the pot and have had such a great turn out!

Didn't mean to push buttons haha just playing off the stigma that all corvette drivers are old dudes with gold chains and hairy chests stuck in the hot rod days of chrome rims.

I take the old fart part back

I kind of like it and think you should go for it. Afterall since you are going to do it with Plastidip it's not permenant, right?

Plus once you locate your hubcaps and slap them back on I think it will really make it pop.

gotta be talented to write humor and have it taken that way. otherwise, it comes off looking like yours and drives away valid, helpful or even positive opinions. and that's why editing your post even after posting, is your friend.
