Anyone handy with Photoshop who could add a mock stripe to the Dangermobile ?

I'm no Photoshop expert, but I ran across this, which may be of interest: http://www.magnagrafik.com/WholeCatalogue.pdf

If you can find a pic(s) of a Boxster with the stripe you want, then match the viewing angle in your own photo, it would simplify the photoshopping greatly

I like this idea. Though, not sure if it can be photoshopped given the angle of my pics.

Here's my first sad attempt

Centered


Offset


I'll whip up another with the offset stripe you just posted, but maybe someone more skilled can jump in...

You would not like it with a stripe
You would not like it, you would gripe
You would not like it here or there
You would not like it anywhere

You would not like your striped-up car
Not up close and not from far
You would not like it, you would see
You would not like it, leave it be

Johnny, I like the first style of stripe that you showed us (that terminates around the Porsche logo), just continue it on the trunk.

I like your"first sad attempt" the best. Centered stripe on the hood and trunk only. Not on the front or rear bumper covers.

This was pretty easy! Yep, definitely makes the Dangermobile look faster (and more mysterious) with a stripe!

I also see from the second photo that Johnny Danger does live up to his moniker.

Do I get a Danger keychain for all my hard work?

It looks like a pigeon with irritable bowel syndrome took a dump on the Dangermobile !

I made that same comment last time he posted that pic.
But I'm guessing its not the wild Pacific at that price...

That photos goes back 3 year, and they're out of business anyway.
