what i would like to see is a solid black strip, from the front of the hood, where the grill meets, to the back of the hood near the window from the 2 points im pointing to. and if you could do it in glossy and matte. its not the whole hood, i just want to see what it would look like. thanks, i really appreciate it!:D

So, I couldnt really understand, if you wanted just a single line or just filled in from those points, therefore I did both. I do editing for another car forum back home, so I did one of my HDR edits. Its just a rough 10 mins of work, but should give you an idea of what you want. If you want something else let me know.

Nice job Main. Those look pretty good.

What program do you use and what "style" did you use to create the second pictures of the two photos (if that makes sense).

Thanks!. Well I use a combination of 4 programs usually when editing something, but in here I used only 3 (Adobe Photoshop CS5 & Illustrator CS3 & Topaz Labs Enhance/DeJpeg)

The first two programs are for the usual editing, like lines on a car/bodykits/adding or removing something. Then illustrator just smoothens it out for me. The Next two are for photo enhancements, color editing, adding "gloss". I also use Photomatrix sometimes, but usually i have to re-do because Photomatrix gives grainy pictures, which I don't like.

The style is actually an HDR photo re-invented. In HDRs usually the object gets immaculate detail as well as the surroundings, often with subtle glows to them. The best example happen is when you take pictures with a DSLR (you get less loss of quality with high-res pictures).

Hope you understood :)

Friendly advice......make sure that the person putting this for you is a pro. Decal this big is tricky.....make sure there's no "bubbles" after they put it.....

i was actually going to have the guy that tinted my windows instal it lol
You might want to think of also the possibility of painting that portion. I know it can be done. Also to match with the shiny SX trim on the front bumper. I believe its from the EB (Ebony Black) but i'd get that checked. I haven't had a chance to closely inspect my SX yet, as I haven't rcvd it, but you should look into that possibility.

Hey could you do an idea I had Main? I dont have my Koup SX yet (so i cant provide a pic) but im thinkin about doing some kind of pinstripe down the sides. My car is black so im thinkin red striping? Maybe even experiment with other colors? Im not 100% sure of how thick/thin i want it, but Im pretty serious about pinstriping it. Just have fun with that one lol nothing specific im looking for other than ideas.

Thanks in advance!

edit: Oh and Im also looking to make the spoiler i get match the color of the pinstripe MAYBE, dunno because im trying to picture it in my head

Nevermind, i just found out that the car is red! The dealer im buying from couldnt buy the black one from another dealer for SOME weird reason so theyre getting me a red one instead. No biggie itll probably be a black pinstripe in this case lol

i was thinking that but its alot cheaper for vinyl, and if anything happens to it, i can always take it off
WARNING!!!

Vinyl WON'T be as glossy as your paint!!!
Vinyl attrac dust like magnet!!!
Realy easy to get contaminated and realy hard to clean it after that!

My roof is still contaminated....... I have to live with it!!!!

My advise: get it pro paint!

Edit: No I don't have cheap vinyl..... it's 3M
