Here's mine... not sure how it would flow over the back edge tho.. sort might have to crop like particlewave's version... Or trim the bottom line... I could mock that up...



However I -strongly- recommend considering this proper badging on winshield and side door if you go this route...

I don't understand why everybody thinks this is so difficult. It only took me 2 minutes to come up with this masterpiece.

FWIW - i quite like the Porsche crest at the bottom of the front wing (fender for you guys ) i like it in isolation without anything else though.

Also if you absolutely positively have to freshen up the DM with a stripe PW is on to something but IMHO dont extend the stripe further by triming the bottom out of it (COMET) - it will just look like your side sill overlapped an existing decal.

Awsome stance though JD! yes... the car!

I know everyone's been making light of your request, JD. But if you're considering stripes and decals and such, you really can't afford to forget about the side exhaust decals discussed on this board some time ago. Not only will you provide a true enhancement to the Dangermobile, but as you may recall, you will also be improving gas mileage and increasing horsepower at the same time. Just a thought.

But gotta give my opinion. THIS is what you want. The little piece in front of the front wheel helps balance off the busier rear quarter area. The stripe gives the car real overall balance, and although I like the yellow, it did look like a canary without the stripe!
