HP numbers are good and all, but they are like asking someone how much they can bench. What difference does it make if I can still kick your ass?

With a tight budget in mind we could use all paintwithpearl.com stuff.

Candy Orange for the lettering. (Motorgen.com on both sides, in huge letters.)



Blue Pearl over a white base.



We could also do a violet or a red pearl, or even a gold pearl over the white. For a very subtle look, you can do white pearl over white, but I imagine the theme of this car will not be subtle.

I was thinking that we could get a large dark blue vinyl cut out of a logo, maybe something like this. And lay it on the hood, over the white base before we clear it. By the way if you guys want to save time and money, we could also do that with the large motorgen logos on the side. Have some large neon orange vinyls made, put them on the white base after it dries for a few hours, then clear over vinyl. That's a great clean way to get a custom look.



If you guys like this idea, we should have Steve photoshop a nice one.

This guy cleared over an autobots logo on this motorcyle. You can't even tell that it was vinyl.

I think we'll go blue pearl over white with the candy orange lettering. I'd like to paint the engine bay and interior as well. Gentleman, get ready to sand and prep, this bit will be labor intensive.

I also really like the direction of the RX Snake logo you mocked up. My only concern would be the IP rights to the snake. Especially considering Ford's penchant for going after enthusiasts for your using their trademarks. It's a touchy area.

Here is a very rough concept for the RX-Snake Logo. Let me know what you guys think.

It's cool. I vote for mine over that one... but nicely done. Make one that looks like mine and let's make a poll.



I think it's funny that RX was supposed to stand for rotary experimental, so we're getting rid of the wrong part of the model name. Not that 7 is any more an indication of the car than RX, I think 7 denotes the 7th attempt?

I actually like them both. But whatever we do, can we make it so we don't get sued by Ford. Thanks.

That was my reasoning for doing the snake the way I did it, don't want motorgen to get sued. I will have to do some more rough concepts for people to possibly vote on and then make a really good one.
