Designed in CorelDRAW and CorelPHOTO PAINT and exported as a .tiff this includes the graphics on the hood and rear (not shown). Set up the contours in Flexi and ripped to the dc3. Laminated and then sent through the T750 to cut the contours....spot on ofcourse :)

I modeled the skull in 3dsmax, and rendered that as a tiff. It was actually part of something else I was working on and the customer just happened to see it.....

Pinstriping is hand painted

I really like the graphic design here, are you laminating before application here?

Thanks!

Yes, most vehicles get lamination. Anything going outside for a good length of time I usually laminate.

ScratchGuard vs lamination

Post by cyberdine » Tue Apr 25, 2006 2:19 am

Hi Muts, very nice job...it looks real nice.
I have just one question...why not use the ScratchGuard instead???
I never used it myself but if its like summa describe it, it then should replace lamination right? or not?
If it does, it than would save a lot of time having to roll laminate it.
Just my thought.

The scratch guard is definately something I intend on trying. I honestly
do not believe it will hold up, but I am planning to give it a go, at it's current price lamination is still cheaper ( I think) and I trust it :)

nice work! what output settings do you use when you print. (line frequenct and dot shape?) my boss HATES seeing a dot of virtually any kind, I usually use 35 and elipse.......does that sound about right?
