Question XR8 Bonnet Graphics Idea

When out and about in another city the other day (Auckland, NZ) i saw this on a black XR8 bonnet... so i photoshopped up mockup on my XR8.

It looked real good in person, but its good to get a idea of other peoples views... (Im huming and haring about it).

What do you think about graphics on the car in general? (minus the GT stripes on a non-GT, i dont want to open that can of worms) :)

I think it looks quite good actaully, how would look with the bulge done the same as well I wonder, think it might be to much, but would be interesting to see I think.

Ok I think too much if you do bulge, I like the first one better, maybe a bit lighter, so they become like ghost stripes.

Re: XR8 Bonnet Graphics Idea

Looks ok i think, would have to see in real life to make a proper judgement of it.
Like it better without the bulge done but.

Re: XR8 Bonnet Graphics Idea

Very interesting...

Made me think of the SBR cars as soon as I saw it, and it's different enough from the ideas of anyone else I've seen to make you think about it to decide if it's nice or not.

I think after looking for a while that I like it (but the first one only. Agree it's too much with the bulge stripes as well - with the shadow in the photo starts me thinking Smokey and the Bandit Firebird).

Cheers
Jason

Re: XR8 Bonnet Graphics Idea

yeah agree with you Venom XR would look better in a nice silver although I assume you meant to do it in silver. Don't like the bonnet bulges, takes away from the subtle evilness of the bulge...

Thats exactly what i thought... gives the car that V8 supercar look without trying (if you know what i mean). What i dont like is cars that have the 'race car' look and cant quite pull it off... (no offence intended, just IMO) But i think its subtle enough to work...
