Graphics...

Ok, so I wasn't sure where to post this....So I figured Off-topic would be OK.
I always wanted to do something different with the hood of my Jeep. It always seemed (to me anyway) like a big ol' sheet of blank paper. Tiny and I were talking about graphics one time and the Idea took off....
Hell, why not a Topo map?
So, without further ado... My new hood graphics.

The map:

The final design:

During the application:

The finished product:




I had to free-hand the map on the hood. So, I used a bit of creative license...It's not an exact match to the original map, but it's damn close.

Looks unique!!

If I was going to add a topo to my hood, I'd have gone with the topo of Area51....just for kicks.

Cain, that does look pretty fawkin cool bro.

I need to get the topo of this one trail here in PHX that has a waterfall that kicks my ass everytime. Maybe that way if I had it on my hood it would be motivation to conquer that mofo.

Cain, I like it too. You have a one of a kind now. Who needs GPS when you have the map right there on the hood.

What a topo map of the inside of your garage? So you don't run over anything when you pull in at night?

I was thinking one of those 'You are here maps' in the mall would look cool for you Scout.

When I first read the title, I thought oh-oh and didn't read the thread. I'm glad I did now, that's the greatest idea for graphics I've seen in a long time.

Great Idea ccain !!!

And the Scout abuse on this tread was top notch also !

ccain......if you don't mind me asking......what post sticker do you have on your Jeep? It's too small for me to read and I was just wondering what post you're based at currently.....
