I'm sad to say that i will no longer offer custom painted pieces any more. My time has been stretched too thin and i'e been having problems with my fiance about it. I work 14 hour days at my day job which leaves weekends for putting together painted items. I just don't have enough daylight anymore to let them naturally dry. I will however still offer power window kits, mapclamps(regular and fatc's when there ready) and hopefully a few more performance modifications in the future. When i get my shop up and running in the future i will be doing powdercoating so thats something to look forward too. I will be finishing up all my orders this weekend. I will no longer take anymore orders for these painted pieces. I'll have a sale on all the stuff i have laying around. The clamps will still be coming out so don't worry. I have some other things in the works aswell like 3 stage co2 cooling kits, wga controller:deal: , mbc's and a few other things. Also a possible name change for the company to start fresh. All of these things i can work on and not need the daylight to naturally dry the paint so i can do whenever.

Another reason for the change in company name is because i'm no longer by my self in the products. I have another 2 guys in this with me. So the name doesn't fit anymore. I've been thinking of "Inspired Tuning" as the new company name. I'll give the person that can make me a new good banner with that in it 50,000 points. Let me see what you guys got.

I think the banner with you and Nate's car flip flopped hoods looks the best...but the playboy pink car is pretty sick as well.....tough choice....

I like the top one with the turbo.

It's simple, not overly complicated. And the shadow is a nice touch too.

Here's some quick (and i mean quick) ones i came up with using that turbo image.... I guess im not very "inspired" right now :thumb:

http://www.rebel-coatings.com/images/srt/banner1.jpg
Pretty simple design...

http://www.rebel-coatings.com/images/srt/banner2.jpg
Shoulda put a border around this one too...


give some pictures of your car, or idea of what you're looking for then maybe I can put something better together when get the time.. lemme know what you think

i like it with a border and shrunk down like that, but not the font. Can you try it with Tempus Sans ITC as the font? Or add a border to my first one and shrink the image? Thanks.

Heres all of the above... I didnt know if you just wanted the name changed or the email too, so i did both...

http://www.rebel-coatings.com/images/srt/banner1m2.jpg

and here's yours... didnt know how big or small to make the turbo, so just went with what it is, and a different kind of border, can do it just sharp edged like mine though if thats better?

i like the second one alot. Try shrinking down the third one to the same size as the other 2 and making the border sharp edged also. Thanks again, you rock!

I can make the text any colour you want, just used gray to keep it (somewhat) a grayscale image...

the proportions got f'd on this, but it doesnt look that bad

damn, too many options now....i like them all.....thanks man. What about animated? What if we could make it a gif file and put the company name coming out of the turbo? Kinda arranged like this:

I'm not sure if you know how to do animation gif style but that would be sweet.

hahah, i was thinking something like that, but thought it might have been kinda lame, and overdone.. but i can try for you... you want it coming out like you have it there, or flipped, so it's coming out of the right side (turbo would obviously be flipped too..)

try it flipped. I already took a bunch of pictures i'll post them right now to see how it would scroll flip book style

Mine came out to 15 pics used. I think it'll look pretty cool. I may keep it, i may just put it in my sig. we'll see. Thanks again.

also it could scroll in from right to left(my pictures are from left to right) and keep the turbo exactly where it is. Basically no flipping.

I didnt have a gif maker so i just quickly downloaded one.. obviously it leaves a watermark (found that out while saving) which you wouldnt want, and the file size is way too big (would have been even bigger if i didnt make it somewhat choppy), but it gives you an idea..

many ways... buy the program, "obtain" the full program, find a free version of a different one.. or some combination of the above... either way i hear an xbox calling me so figure out what you'd like.. i'll check this tom, and see what i can do or if someone else wants to try something, go right ahead!

I dunno. I'm not a big fan of the font you use for the name.

I had one of my friends in Hungaria do my logo for me.

Ok, banner is chosen, it's in mine and evil_2's signature and on our vendor page. If you guys can come up with some animated gif's still that would be awesome. I'll be working on some of my own too. Thanks everyone for your help.
