It is preferable to do full name in iRacing, then we can include your nick below that. You can add me on iRacing though - Kyle Breen-Bondie
I am not sure if you know our avatar thing. Everyone chooses a video game character that best represents who they are. If you want though I can throw that avatar on the car somewhere small elsewhere. Not sure if you've seen the B2O knock off of the cover art in our flavor... take a look here: http://www.twitch.tv/fragtardnet/profile For example this is mine:
I picked Jim Raynor because well... I'm a badass. JK. Mainly because he fights for what he believes in regardless of the consequences. And because he shoots aliens. Look out Noel.
Here's one take on an idea I really wanted to try out. Not even 25% done yet but you can get an idea of the scheme, colors, direction I'm going with it. Trying something different, a bit artsy but nothing near the Koons artsy.
I forgot all about that stupid issue with the BMW. I'll update it, just a matter of turning on that layer. Colors are still tentative. Might flop them all around, try primarily an orange, leave the halftones blue and make the stripes black.

That looks really nice! I actually prefer that to the red scheme, it definitely stands out more
Yeah I am loving the way it is turning out. Thing is, the V8SCs are absolutely awesome to paint. They have a TON of real estate. There's almost no air inlets that disrupt major space, no weird bubbles, its just awesome. Not like the Macca that has 3/4 of its side covered in strange air inlets and aero. So a paint like this wouldn't work the same at all for a lot of other cars. Maybe in the future I could apply the same type of scheme though with halftones and whatnot, we'll see.
I think having a central theme between cars is essential in brand recognition.
Someone suggested in another thread (can't remember where) that having a base theme with different secondary colours is a good way of identifying each of us but still keeping the main theme recognisable. I agree, the Pirtek Hondas in BTCC do this for example and it looks great
