Going For Paint Next Week.....
Posted 28 January 2014 - 10:45 PM
It's basically a Sprint render done by a friend, shadows are missing. The black and white paint will be a satin finish and the stripe a changeable gloss vinyl. There will also be lots of new stickers and a windscreen strip...a little more subtle inc MLOC. There is some other stuff but I'll update the thread in technical when done :-)

Jon, i like that. However it might look better with the separating stripe a darker Red or even a different colour ( Yellow ). It will be worth trying a few different options

No worries buddy.
I tried yellow, well gold and it looked sooooo retro, I'll try post the pic up later, its changeable though Martin.

I think Chris has hit the nail on the head. The problem is the clam joins are too close the colour change. They show too much on a light colour and moving the joining stripe up to hide means the front of the clam would be a problem to look right
See if it looks better moving the bottom colour down a bit so it's at the bottom of the side pod or going for a darker top colour?
Can you go for a narrower orange separator stripe?

The lines on the Sprint are set very similar and they look well proportioned.
I like the look of your carbon doors though Jonny !!
If everything seems under control yr just not going fast enough !

Steve, Chris...The Sprint is the format I'd like to achieve however the vinyl can be cut any size, it's just vinyl so if this doesn't work out I can reshape and colour at will I guess.
