    Ok so I couldn't sleep last night and thought I might start a skin for the truck. I have tried a few different things and just can't get it to look the way I want. So I ask for your opinions and lets see where we can take it.

    Fire away and all are welcome!!!

    yeah the rear sides is what I'm having a problem with, I can't seem to find anything that looks right there.

    I like what you did with the side... have you tried it with gold/yellow traded out for the silver/white?

    Not yet, but that is an idea! I don't know what it is but I am still not very happy with it.

    Maybe take (most of) the sponsors you have in front of your front wheels, and place them in a single stack at the very back of each side.

    Ok here it is as you suggested... I don't think you can get rid of the sponsors, doesn't anyone know about this? I might try it with removing the yellow/blue circle from the bull on the hood and see how that looks.

    Ahh... didn't realize the contingency sponsors were done by iRacing. Do like it better - maybe reverse the top and bottom flames (yellow inside, gold outside) since the RB is more yellow. Could fill the blue patch at the top rear with a "Red Bull" or some other minor sponsor (RD?)

    Giving photoshop a stretch

    Ok so I took my new paint out for a little run and got a little sideways, cough, cough... For the camera of course!!!! I thought I would open the ol photoshop back up. Perhaps maybe you guys can expect a pictorial of tomorrows Racedepartment Mustang get together...

    Joe, excellent photo. I've tried screenshots and video editing, but fail miserably. That one above is crisp with detail which I cant seem to get.

    It's not really a big deal once you get use to it. It becomes a big deal when you really get to editing a shot as some do on the iRacing forums. What I did above I would not consider a big deal at all really, I think once I had the shot in photoshop I might have spent about 45 seconds on it. However I have tools and software that I use for photography that take a huge chuck of time out of the process for some of the simple stuff.
