    New livery looks good. I remember when it used to be a white car with blue and black lettering and a couple of blue stripes up front.

    Yeah, definitely beef up the "track HQ" signage! Overall, sweet!

    Great idea.

    Maybe along the sides, move the numbers up to above the knee line and put the TrackHQ decal prominently along the area below it.

    Brett, because the site is so clean and simple, graphically, I thought it may appear a better brand opp to do a layout similar. Just me messing around in the morning here while I wait for the coffee to kick in...quick and dirty.

    Logo banner across the bottom, again across the hood. That gives more purpose and visual direction for the GS stripes on the fender. I know arranging the sponsor and contingency decals is a bit tricky, but just felt it feels more inline with the identity of the site.

    Another thought, the rear has a great opp for you, too! The "HQ" field is such a strong icon of the logo, and the trunk is a similar proportion, there is too much left on the table by leaving it blank.

    I went diagonally rather than across the bottom because of the all the rubber I have to rub off after every event. I didn't think that would make for long-lived decals. Great ideas for the HQ, though. Thanks!

    I like what Force did. Definitely need the big HQ on the trunk.

    Understood! Maybe paint it on? Easy to do a reverse cutout from the diecut. Two colors, clear coat over that?

    Brent, TR3 is you friend.
    As a fellow White car owner, I had the same thoughts with regards to longevity of the stickers, which as you recall are not the smallest on my car.
    2+ years and 50-60 days at the track later, the decals still look fine.
    Every now and then I clean everything with TR3 which is available at every Autozone or Pep boys on the wax and polish shelf, and things look as good as new again.
