Should i run sponsors or leave her naked????
 
first off she is a long way from being done but wanted some opinions!!! THIS WILL BE NO PAVEMENT PRINCESS! she will get thrashed. (I just got the kit last week thats why its so clean) Built the aluminum panels and still have to do the boat sides and all the inner fenders, mount the rear panel, put lights in ect..........



But just wanted to see what you guys think and get your opinion on if i should sticker this bi%#h up, or leave here naked:lmao:

Any advice is welcome i mess around a lot with sporty stuff but i knew i had to get a wraith to bash with:twisted:

Thanks!!! any advice is welcome

I wonder if anybody has tried clear contact paper to protect those pretty panels?

only thing i think would work with being covered is if i got some thin polycarbonate and more or less duplicated the skins and thru bolted them over the alu. i donno

Put a few stickers on it! It looks too plain jane for me but that is just me. I love the panels and wish I had some ;)

Tough call...looks so nice the way it sets.

I say drive and show it the way it is until you start to get bored with it.

Then add some color on it....

When you get bored again add some decals, but not sponsor themed.... Too many people are doing them sponsor themed. Just my $.02

Nice build"thumbsup"

thanks guys!


Oh and what do you think about the hood? im luke warm........does it need some sort of a scoop, cowl or something? (nothing big something sutle)
Like a yj hood. what would you guys like to see? building it isnt a problem just tossing around ideas

A subtle intake would be pretty cool... especially custom. "thumbsup"

like forward facing "pro stock" style? or rear induction cowl style? or some sort of body lines? Im looking to do something not seen yet on a wraith but still fits the "theme"

I usually sticker the crap out of my bodies, but they are also lexan and easy to replace. Those metal panels are too pretty to cover up, IMO.

I say give it a hint of color and clear coat it. Keep it nice and clean. As for the hood, maybe some lines or a cowl slightly taller than a normal lexan hood or just some lines to give it some definition. Also how much for one of them sweet hoods?

That looks great as is!

but, a little on the plain side.. but, I think you can do something other than stickers to fix that.

keep it clean!"thumbsup"
