i have a new car- now help me customize it!

Post by *BARRAGE* » Thu May 29, 2008 3:54 am

with the purchase of my new silver 05 Aveo, i have been scowering the net for some things to stick on/in it...

i have found some decals, but they are hideously over priced with shipping, and i don't e-bay...

i am looking for some cobra logo decals and some decepticon logo decals... and any seat covers/random car customization in the vein of decepticons and cobra... i have already bought a skull shifter knob and skull door lock caps- but now i need my nerdiness to show through...

(if anyone knows where i can find a single color cobra-con logo, i will love forever- platonically- unless you're hawt like sades:D)

linkage is greatly appreciated! thanks in advance for the help!

I should have stuck with the "400 pound male crossdressing trucker from Arkansas" schtick.

If you really wanna turn your car into a nerdity showcase, go for it. I've heard tell of a TF hood ornament, but there's always the chance that someone will swipe it on you. Nothing really beyond that, asides from the obvious decals.
This is my signature. My wasted space. My little corner. You can't have it. It's mine. I can write whatever I want. And I have!

Kewl. I reckon that I'd wack a huge autobot logo on the bonnet of my car if I ever got one.

^It's fairly simple to extract the logo using image editing software and the handy magic wand tool set on low tolerance. Simply select the background then invert the selection, fill/delete to your preference.

Now, you could try and make it bigger by shining a light through your A4 cut out hardcopy onto a big bit of cardboard. I have no idea if that works but the further away the light source, the crisper the lines, so sunlight might be a good option depending on how big you want your final stencil. Video projector would be ideal if you've got geek mates who are into home cinema.

Paint, varnish, polish, suffer, etc. and you should end up with something like this : http://capoue.free.fr/twingo.htm

Surely Sades would be more useful is she looked like that Xzsibit chap?


EDIT: More useful in pimping rides that is, not in general...
