I was playing around in photoshop and figured I'd do a brushed aluminum with carbon fiber look.

Opinions?'

Not bad - as a fellow digital artist, might I suggest a more matte-sheen to the carbon (Gaussian + unsharp or similar)?

The interior pieces of the vehicle are done in matte carbon (and while I know the body kits are all gloss carbon, I still think logos look better in matte) - I think that contrasts the interior scheme of matte w/ aluminum a bit better.

Other than that, looks great!

I like it. Make a 4 X 5" decal in black and I'll order two. I'd like to do that with the C7 hash marks for drivers side in black for my TR and place one decal behind the front wheel well and one on the back panel right of center in the red area.

Brushed of the first, carbon of the second - best combo.

Can't wait to see how these turn out!

Thoughts on sizing? Guess it depends where most of us would put them.

Last one I put on the rear bumper of my c6 about the same spot as where the lettering was. Could be a replacement for the c7 flag on the back I suppose?
