Need XR & Scorpio pics for Carlisle 2013 artwork

Post by DPDISXR4Ti »

Need some reasonably high-resolution side shots of bi-wing XR and Scorpio. The shots need to be side shots - no angled, 3/4, weird hi/low shots, just dead-on square (think, walk straight out from the B-pillar). Prefer uncluttered background and primary colors such as blue, red, white, black with stock wings and wheels.

Post up in this thread or e-mail me.

Not quite squared-up, but probably close enough.

Keep 'em coming.

No harm in posting it up. We need some colors though.

Remember, you can just send them to me directly if you don't want to bother uploading to a photo site.

It's certainly the correct shot - might be useful if a "blank template" is needed for coloring as needed.

The only challenge is, now the artist I was planning to use has gone AWOL. Anyone here know about producing artwork ready for silk-screening?

Let me get in touch with my uncle, he might be able to help out there. He just started a new job as a director at the same college I work at, so it may be iffy, but I will ask.

with a little manipulation, some of the photos would make for a nice tshirt

Funny enough, I've got the original hi-res version of the photos around here somewhere. I had a minor role in arranging that car for the photo shoot; the lead time was ridiculously long.

Thanks for the thought.

So long it still hasn't arrived. "From the November 2014 Issue of Motor Trend"
