Looking forward to seeing the progress on the S15, buddy. Lil Ben was looking at doing the Japspeed Silvia but after learning that the original was sold abroad he carried on with the Subaru Widebody.

Having a custom Decal company could get you some coin in this game too. Always somebody wanting some custom stuff if the price was right. Too many places get aproached and you can see their eyes rolling with '£' signs like a gambling machine.

Nice one. Good to know that graphic designers/sign writers aren't out to just fill their pockets.
Still have a shell idea (probably now about 3 years old) but never followed it up.. intersted to see your 1:10 work and I need to get some funds before following up the original idea anyway.

Do you have access to holographic style vinyl too?
