Vehicle Graphics : My Own Car

Phew, my first vinyl attempt. I know its nothing special but I just wanted to mark the occasion by posting the pictures here. Now I just have to apply it to the other side of the car. A bit ambitious but I suppose thats the way to learn.

My back hurts!

If you could stop getting so excited over your first vinyl job, you would see that you are missing a forward slash after http:/ :roll: :lol:

I wish we had a "Thumbs-Up" Icon.
This deserves 2!

Now go & do the other side!
Then drink a Guinness & RELAX.

thanks, Im so happy with the way the orange works against the colour of the car:D . If I took a close up picture you could see a bit of misalignment at the end of the word orange and the start of the word dog. Mis-judged it a bit, and I need to tidy up around the keyhole area too. I think I will use the 'polo' idea suggested in another post.

Hopefully the other side will go a bit smoother, preparation!!!!!

I spotted the missing '/' but I couldnt get in to edit the post, hence the repeated attempts, that I got wrong at the same time... sums up my first errors in vinyl too.....rush rush rush.


slow down Liam.


time for more GIN.

:o :o Wow, what a job to take on for a first attempt!!! That is superb! And the design is jolly bright as well! :D

What vinyl did you use to do that? Were there any bits harder than other bits? And when you buy the polos, can I have one? :wink:

I was considering a similar sized panel on the dewi-mobile, hence all the questions. The polo mint isn't for the job though, its to eat :D

Cheers, Dewi

I've seen some of your designs Dewi and thats where the key is, I'm sure you could do a effective design for the"Dewi" mobile. You've all seen the wraps and what not but this looks very effective and it is all about the design.

Welldone :)

Excellent work OrangeDog.

Easy really isn't it? Don't paws (sorry John) too long before doing the other side though.

All that concentration I bet you were dog tired when you finished, you get a pat from me any way.

Yeah that's right you'll need to race to get things finished else you'll get collared by us guys so lets see you do a quick lap

Would have been interesting if you had put this on a Rover

Think we should finish it there don't you - lets call it a dog end!

love it! simple yet effective, with all the dog jokes i thought i might add one more:

A man brought a very limp dog into the veterinary clinic. As he lay the
dog on the table, the doctor pulled out his stethoscope, placing the
receptor on the dog's chest. After a moment or two, the vet shook his
head sadly and said, "I'm sorry, but your dog has passed away." "What?"
screamed the man. "How can you tell? You haven't done any testing on
him or anything. I want another opinion!"

With that, the vet turned and left the room. In a few moments, he
returned with a Labrador Retriever. The Retriever went right to work,
checking the poor dead dog out thoroughly. After a considerable amount
of sniffing, the Retriever sadly shook his head and said, "Bark". The
veterinarian then took the Labrador out and returned in a few moments
with a cat, who also checked out the poor dog on the table. As had his
predecessors, the cat sadly shook his head and said, "Meow." He then
jumped off the table and ran out of the room. The veterinarian handed
the man a bill for $600. The dog's owner went postal. "$600! Just to
tell me my dog is dead? This is Outrageous!" The vet shook his head
sadly and explained. "If you had taken my word for it, it would have
been $50, but with the Lab work and the cat scan..."

Rachel and others

Talking of dogs, how about:

A guy walks into a bar with his dog and says, "I'll have a Scotch and water and my dog would like a whiskey sour."
The bartender says, "Sorry, we don't allow animals in here."
The dog replies, "Hey, I'm tired of being discriminated against. Just give me a drink."
The bartender says, "Oh, no, not another ventriloquist with the old talking dog trick. Both of you, get out of here!"
"No, no, no, this isn't a trick, I promise you," says the man, "I tell you what, I'll go for a walk around the block and you talk to Rover here." The man leaves and the bartender sees him turn the corner. "Now, can I have my drink." says the dog.
The bartender is amazed. "Sure you can and it's on the house! Listen, can you do me a favour? My wife works next door at the cafe. It'll make her day if you go in and order a cup of coffee. Here's ten bucks and you can keep the change afterwards."
"Okay." says the dog and he takes the ten dollars and leaves.
Ten minutes go by and the dog doesn't come back. The owner returns and asks where is the dog. So both of them go off to see what happened to the dog. As they approach the cafe, they see Rover going at it hot and heavy with a French poodle in the alley between the bar and cafe.
The owner shouts, "Rover! What are you doing! You've never done this before!"
The dog shrugged. "Hell, I've never had any money before."

Have fun
