    I need some help, even though I went to school for graphic design like 10 years ago I just cant come up with a scheme for my car.

    I wanted to see if anyone had any good ideas for my race car. Designs/colors?

    The colors I was thinking of doing were neon orange, black, and white. I want to do white and neon orange at the least....anyone wanna give it a shot?

    I dont have many photos but its basically a plain white 95 civic hatch back.

    SCCA STL class

    Forget where I saw it at but it was an Autism Awareness themed car. Was covered in puzzle pieces.

    Thats pretty cool actually.

    A litte painful on the eyes for a long time though lol.

    I was considering maybe just a vinyl job but the paint job is so crappy now.

    I can refresh the white and just add my numbers etc but I was wanting something different.

    I was thinking something like this without all the craziness..

    I like it, I'm going to have to look into getting it done.

    How much does it cost to do vinyl on a car?

    I could always just rattle can it too.

    I have a feeling rattle cans would be a lot cheaper.
