Played around with PS Sunday. A little fun with ideas for this Spring, and can't decide on the graphics. Definitely plastidipping the wheels and fixing the rust on the wheel wells, but can't decide on the graphics. I can get them on eBay/Amazon (I forget) for about $80.

Like the graphics, or too much?

If the car is used for mainly rally-x/auto-x with numbers and sponsor stickers and not driven on street very much, sure. I've seen them on the street with that decal package and it looks too poser-ish for a DD. My $0.02.

Try ghosting the graphic... Make it one or two shades lighter than the paint color.

555 is a brand of cigarette. In some countries, the cars are not allowed to run with cigarette advertising so they go to this modified design that is not specifically the brand.

I like this better. GRM number panels to replace Neste

Shrink so it only covers the 1/4 panel?

This x 1000. If it's 99% toy / competition car then go for it. If it's any more than 75% street use no way.

I like it as-is.

Stickers are for race cars. You already have too many.

It's meant to be a daily, and I keep saying "occasional rallycrosser" which will probably depend on the MR2's reliability this year. Never say never. I've been leaning all along towards no to the graphics. Just needed to hear it from others.

The Summit is coming off when it warms up, already removed another from the body that came off in tiny little bits.

Do you really like cops???

If you do - go ahead and sticker it up. Otherwise - stay stealth mode!
