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:

http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a1..._600x450-2.jpg

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.

Hehehe...Thanks! It is a local map though... A place back over the mountain from where I live.

I made it.... I have a buddy at the sign shop, so the materials were free.

Thanks Az!

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. :D

squarelightsahara 09-24-2007 05:20 PM

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.

Texapple 09-24-2007 05:51 PM

too cool :D

activelydying 09-24-2007 06:04 PM

That looks SWEET. You free handed that?

Scout 09-24-2007 06:08 PM

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

Scout 09-24-2007 06:10 PM

You suck.

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

You love the attention. :D

So Cain how long did it take you to free hand paint all of that on there?

tiny terror 09-24-2007 06:32 PM

He was out there all stinking afternoon, but it's vinyl.

AzTJ 09-24-2007 06:45 PM

:doh: fixed my last post...

MouthfulOfGrass 09-24-2007 07:22 PM

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 !

debruins 09-24-2007 07:25 PM

nice graphics ccain!

cavediverjc 09-24-2007 09:03 PM

Tough crowd tonight, huh Scout? :)

whiteyj 09-24-2007 09:06 PM

SWEET! What an awesome idea.

bluvikng 09-24-2007 09:12 PM

ccain, I got to admit.........that is really bad arse. You come up with some really good ideas. I like the way that looks..............very original.........wtg!!!!!!

4point 09-24-2007 09:18 PM

Very original and even cooler. :D

cavediverjc 09-24-2007 09:25 PM

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.....

http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l2...oststicker.jpg

ccain 09-24-2007 09:42 PM

its a base sticker for the local Air Guard base... I'm in the Army Guard...Well, I was, anyway they give them to us Army types so we can go to finance and the PX and stuff.
