I'm thinking of doing either of these. The first one should be easy to do with vinyl. Don't know how I'd do the second one without paint (it goes clear around the front bumper of the car). Could the second one be done with vinyl???



Comments, opinions, suggestions?

Thanks.

Heh…

I’ve always liked scallops and must put them on my car:p I just need to figure out how.

I could buy an entire front bumper in a different color (the blue) and then match the vinyl scallops to that color... I don't know.

I'd go with the bottom if I picked one......I'm pretty sure there is a special type of vinyl that uses a heat shrinking system that they could use for your front bumper.

In the first picture, the front reminds me of a PT Cruiser, the second looks better though.

They should do a limited edition color with the Caiber, either like already mentioned 2 tone, hey if they want to go retro, lets see them really get serious!!:D:D


Great chops nonetheless!!:cool::cool:

Yeah, a two-tone would look killer on the Caliber. :D

Not going to show. I'm sort of a loud person. In fact people actually have been complaining that I don't have some sort of graphics on my cars (on my last car... and they expect me to do some graphic work on this one)... because they know I do graphic work. So I'm going to attempt to satify the masses... heh. Perhaps it'll get me some freelance work:p

That's what I was wondering. Going to have to figure it out because I'm going o do this one way or another... just have no idea how... or who.

you could do actual automotive paint, taping off scallops isn't really *that* hard, and it'd give a much more professional appearance if done correctly

I'm worried about painting because painted graphics seems to attract key-weilding-types... and is more difficult to repair. And if I were ever to resale the car the vinyl stuff will be a lot easier to remove.

speaking of photoshopping... could someone please make that picture of the sxt sport red? i've being trying to find a pic of it so i could see what my car actually looks like for quite some time now. i'm being disillusioned by the red RT all over the internet... i'd really appreciate it!

and heck, if you've already done up a photochopped red sxt sport, you feel free to go ahead and make a sig out of it... i wouldn't mind that too much either!! :);)

i think we all know who i'm talking too.....;)
