Well I won't argue with you but IMHO, I don't think that the Aventador is a "stripe ready" car. It's all of those angular lines and sharp angles that makes it hard to put a good looking stripe on. What you did there is quite good (a bit too big imo) but maybe to give that little edge, why not continue the stripe at the top of the vent? I think it's weird to have a stripe abruptly end like that.

Hey Magick, could you post that frontal shot without any changes on it?  I think I'd like to try something out... smile.gif

I still like the faded, subtle style (like Warren's black toy car) better than the full-on color. I suspect we're just going to agree to disagree on this one - however, since it's your nickel, I think it should be EXACTLY what *you* want...

Thank you sir!  Okay, here's what I was thinking...

 

 

Like a asymmetrical Tricolore stripe... and the white can have alternating white and silver micro-lines.  I've attempted to show that in the pic, but I think you'll have to zoom in to see it.

The Gallardo-type stripe.

I showed the black and red one from earlier to my wife and she really liked that (of course). Not sure about the asymmetrical stripes, but I like the texture on the white one.

That's an option as well.  It's very "Ima kicka your assa" if you ask me...

BTW Magick, regarding your latest thread title: "When does a person need an intervention?" - I'm sorry, but you are WAY past intervention. You left intervention at the station about 15 cars ago. I have a very close friend with an autistic son that is 22 years old. For the boy's entire life he has been obsessed with trains, SUVs and Sponge Bob. Now, I'm not saying you are autistic - but how do you feel about Sponge Bob? tongue.gif

Personally, I also REALLY like trains & Sponge Bob - but I can take or leave SUVs. wink.gif

Sorry - I'm in a silly mood this morning... redface.gif

If his progression through cars is any indicator, this is how I imagine it playing out:

How it'll start:


And then:
(we're imagining this is a "souped up" steam engine, not a time machine)

And then:


And finally:(and yes, you're reading that right - over 10,000 km/h).

Continue thinking about DeLoreans and their outstanding build quality. Still want one?
