    new/old paint scheme

    I like the old style but would like it to be fresher. In other words incorporate what is known in the car but make it look new.
    Who got the talent for that here?
    change away..

    With all the hard work done to the bodywork to make the car look so fantastic, but retaining the original features does it really need bold graphics ? . I know you need sponsors stickers etc but I think it would look amazing in just bright red paint. Let the bodywork show it's self off with a more subtle paint scheme.

    I might be on my own here but I think a lot of race car paint jobs are just a bit OTT and spoil the shape of the cars.

    I tend to agree with 33 plymouth,it would also be a blank sheet for potential sponsors(if anyone could gain a major sponsor its you !)
    And in the event af a big sponsor turning up i would consider "wrapping" go can go absolutly wild and at the end of the deal whip it off back to basic red/whatever,Bry

    Sorry not having a dig at anyone with wild paint jobs but sometimes less is more works better. Subtle paint jobs and loud engines does it for me

    how about having the checkered part more like a flowing flag? and making the red more of a candy colour? mind no matter how its painted it will look mean as hell!
