Photo Request

Hi All,
I need some help from a turbo owner. I'm thinking about doing a small run of shirts... something I've had trouble with in the past. I'd like to use a "butt shot" of a turbo. I've searched this forum and rennlist but haven't seen quite what I'm looking for. There are a lot of cool shots but most are spoiled with odd things in the reflections of the paint. If you have or can take a great photo of your turbo's rear end with either nothing reflected in the paint or something cool (palm tree, cool architecture, etc) I'd love to see it.
If I use your photo, I'll send you a free shirt.

This is almost perfect but the basketball net is distracting as is the building to the right. I'd like to see more tire if that's possible but it's darn close.

Thank you Bob and those that PM'd me. No need to worry about the background or licence plates. The shirts I'll be painting with be using something else. Once I find a photo that I can sample off of and create the basic design, I'll show ya'll what I'll be painting.

Thanks

Hey David! That car looks awful familiar! I'm glad you like it. I'll try to get another pic with less distractions. That pic was taken right after I bought it. If you go with something else that's ok, but make sure you post a pic of your T-shirt and where to get one cause I'd be interested in getting one.

Robert - Your car looks nice! What muffler do you have on there?

My personal favorite. You make this into a T-shirt and they will sell.

This probably won't help you since the background isn't clean, but the angle is kind of cool

I agree, thats a great pic, but I would suggest taking the same type of shot of the front of the car and put the front of the car on the front of the shirt, and the back of the car on the back of the shirt. THAT would be awesome !

Caption on front: - Porsche -

Caption on back: There is no substitute.

Gotta be guards red too.

For WCC

WCC,

That's a fabspeed muffler and WG pipe. I like the fitment. It was a direct bolt on except for a cut-out for the tip on the passenger side of the lower valance. Its a straight pipe with a glass pack. Loud and sounds pretty ferocious. It has a tendency to pop on deceleration. My buddy's say it sounds good.

Rarlyl8, I agree that is a beautiful picture. Nothing like a Guards Red turbo in the right lighting... I want a t- shirt.

For h20cooled7

h20cooled7,

Here you go.. Some FUCH-AGE. Its not often I get to show off my car... You guys know that I sold my Kinesis and bought these Fuchs...I have been deemed the local fool....I just like Fuchs better. Whatta ya think of my custom rear fender rock guard coating. It is removable. But I like it. Different!

David, Throw some fuchs on your t-shirt somewhere...

Good idea. Get me the front and I'll give it a try.
The only problem would be keeping the price down. All of my shirts are hand painted so two portraits would get costly.

Well see how the design comes out. Maybe a 1/2 Fuch in the back ground?

Maybe I'll do a few rough sketches and post them here. I'll let the Pelicanites pick the design.

Do we know who own this car or at least who took the picture? This isn't a poster is it?
