Yeah, it was worth the extra work to shorten the body again.

I'm very happy with the results.

Now just add a giant camper shell on the back, and you have...



















































what you started with!

Looks awesome! Have you thought about any type of pinstripe to break up the giant wall of black once it is finished?

Yeah, I was thinking about some stripes that match the ones on the camper possibly.

I'm not sure what i'll do, maybe i'll have a little contest here and see who can photoshop the best color scheme and i'll go with which ever I deem the winner.

I did like the A-Team graphics too.

If you do decide to go with the A-Team graphics, will C Riders be required to ride in the back of the bus? Just curious.

You actually have to photoshop it onto the bus, and that one would fail anyway.

Another idea....


Saw an episode of Car Warriors on Speed TV channel.
Quote:

Race Cars - The All Stars have 36 hours against a team of military personnel, to transform two identical race cars into beautifully customized Hollywood cars of destruction.
The military guys painted their body to look like panels with rivets on it, similar to an airplane. It was highly praised by George Barris. Seeing your side view and the fasteners you used to cover the rear window and the lower panel, you might think about doing something similar all around to get the same overall effect. It would be tough looking!
