Hmmm this gives me another support idea.

Red, Black and white is pretty doable for vinyl. People send you their hood dimensions and windshield width at the top and and deposit and once 10 pre orders are made, a production run is made. The GRM benefit vinyl graphics cost would not be to count against challenge budget.

Also, if on the windshield banner if GRM would like to provide the options of a having a sponsor logo flank theirs, I'd approve, especially if the sponsors are enthusiastic about it upon being reached out regarding this. 

Let us know how much would make it viable and worthwhile for production.

Or if the production overhead is prohibitive for your local 3rd party vinyl plotter, $250 per a member for the scaleable vector graphics provided for outside local production?

My car is black and as I read the post I was thinking it would be cool to paint it like that for the Challenge.

So a vinyl wrap would be cool too.

I created one for GTS.  I think you can just search for "GRM".  I put the GRM sticker up also, so you can find that the same way.

GTS is pretty restrictive on the file size of uploaded graphics (the logo alone is a stretch), so the hood art on the OP's would have to be multiple pieces stitched together.

I know some folks (like mndsm and Racerfink) have liveries in the Forza series. We should definitely use them more.

And Forza Horizon 4 just added share codes for liveries in a recent update, so it'd be easy to spread the love.
