    Im working with some designers on comming up with some custom paint mask, would anyone be interested in any. If so what sort of designs would you be looking for, Ive got some in the works now that will be the typical flame designs but tailored for the whole vehicle instead of just random flames.

    Been thinking also of doing some mask sheets with vehicle specific graphics such as nissan, honda, mazda etc...

    Let me know what you guys think....

    Actually the first batch will be rcdrifter specific for sort of site support cars, the next ones that will be worked on will be a replica of the d1gp blitz s15 and then from there various other models.

    We also will be working on various dare i say "jdm" mask sets with various industry specific mask for hks, greddy, monkey magic, blitz etc....

    i think a mask of just random sponsor logos would be a great way to finish off a drifter body. no specific whole car logos but the small ones pasted above wheel wells on side skirts etc. real tuning namesakes like those of:
    Kei office
    TODA
    JUN auto mechanic
    KANI racing factory
    TOP SECRET
    TRUST
    RS R
    EXEDY
    CUSCO
    ZEAL
    ZeroStage
    DAISHIN
    AUTO STAFF
    SaRD
    Yashio Factory
    Do-Luck
    Video Option
    BRIDE
    TEIN
    ENDLESS
    HKS
    A'PEX
    BLITZ
    NISMO

    I like AE86's idea. But gota add one... K&N Filters. Cant forget them.

    But also with that you should make paint masks of the big graphics of the 1:1 drift cars. IE HKS, Top Secret.

    But that would be cool.

    I have alot of these logos already setup to be cut, how big do you guys want these if they are done small enough as on most cars the mask may get hard to weed with all the small lettering...would this be something better to be done as a decal?

    Ya... decals good. Paint masks get hard if its smaller then a door panel. It would be AWSOME to make them as decals. Maby (just throwing ideas out) two sizes. One for wheel wells, and one for maby side panels or spoilers.

    I agree, decals are nowhere as good loking as painted logos. its kinda fiddly and abit of a pain, but gives superiour results
