Default Need help/opinions

Hey all,


I need some help coming up with an idea for graphics that are going to be used on my car/trailer/racing kart. I want something simple that I can reproduce on all of them, so that they look like they belong together.

Here is an idea I like ( I was at RSM in Toronto and was able to go in the back and grab a pic of the Malibu they are using as a test fit vehicle.



Once you remove RSM racing written on the side it is nice and simple and clean.
I just don't want to take an idea that is out there already.

Here is the car I am trying to do up.


Here is the trailer that I am building and will be painted the same color as the car once complete.





On that trailer, my logo is going in the top left corner on each side with the name.


And as for the kart well I don't have too many pics of it but lets see what I have here.....


This my my Brother from Toronto, ( maybe that is why he is the way he is, LOL)


Here i am in the endurance race I was allowed to compete in at the end of the season last year, since I spent the whole year as the main race starter.





No matter what I use for graphics it will be the same on all 3 items, just reduced in size for the kart.

Any ideas would be appreciated since I need to get this done ASAP,


Thanks to all that have ideas

It'* actually Friedpoodle racing and as for number I gave them 3 choices and have to wait to see what I can get, either 24 or 8 and I think the last one is either 11 or 42, can't remember, LOL.


The number will go over the graphics if it looks good, and my logo will also get place on the hood of the car. I guess I should have put up what my logo is.

Here it is.



Here is the site I am starting to build for it too, there is the font of the text I am going to use for the name, possibly a better font for the work racing but that is all I had at the time.

graphics are all vinyl.

The tint is 20% all around, haven't been stopped for it yet. The angle of the pic does make it look really dark too, well it is pretty dark.

Well I was talking to someone I know tonight and he has a machine at home to cut vinyl, so I told him what I wanted to do for the trailer, for my logo and text and this is what we are at right now, text orientation will change but this is basically what it will look like.
