    So right on schedule, just when you think there couldn't possibly be any more changes, here we go thinking again, dangerous! LMAO. But don't blame me, BLAME JAMES!

    Okay, so I get a text from good buddy James @SaltShaker a few days ago. He says I should loose the Cobra on the side and put the cool DRAGSNAKE graphic there instead. He says the name of the car should go on the doors... He says that with some conviction. Car name on the door. LOL

    But if there is one thing I am sure of when it comes to James, he knows drag racing. So this must be a do as I say, not as I do sort of thing. LOL ....Sorry James, I couldn't resist it!

    However the more I thought about it the more it started to make since. I do have a killer cool graphic. And it is sort of just hiding out back there on the rear quarter. AND...as I have said before, if Holman and Moody had built the DragSnake they probably would not have been advertising for COBRA.

    So I decided, we have a week or so left before we pull the trigger, let's give Jame's idea a solid look. So take a peak and let me know your thoughts. The stripe and color down the middle is set in stone at this point but have a look at the three proofs below. The original and a couple of variations on Jame's plan. What do you think?

    Option 1 cobra plain.jpg

    Option 2

    Option 3

    Personally, not that I need any assistance mudding up the water, but I am starting to think maybe James is on to something here. I am really digging option 3

    Option 3 with a blue panel behind it. A rounded corner, organic panel that looks like it fits, not squared off. You could fade the edges of the panel too if you wanted.

    Not that it mattters, but I prefer #3. I'd like it better if the scoop was gold like #1.
    However, I've noticed that ALL of your 'shop designs have left the area behind the front wheel on the fender open. Since there isn't a louver there, I'd say that the snake should be moved up more and have a gap between it and the lettering.

    Another possibility is to enlarge the DRAGSNAKE a bit and put the Powered By Holman Moody above the front wheel arch. I could see the round logo on the Black top, too.

    Combine Option 1 and Option 3. Gold hood scoop , the white one on the gold stripe looks like an after thought. The 289 looks cool on the scoop and breaks up the gold a little. Move the cobra snake forward a bit so it is not crowding in the DRAGSNAKE logo so much. And if you change your mind again I will have James and Jackson come over there and slap you silly to the point you wish you where building a CIVIC! ;);) And Dad may even help them! lol Larry

    And I still think the snake pattern "lace" on the stripes would be cool and tie the black top in more!:)

  9. I like #2 the best, #3 is to heavy in the front, maybe try the snake at the rear of the lettering

    Randall, you know what they say about opinions:eek:
    I'm with James too.
    If you left the Cobra name off the car, I just can't imagine someone coming up to you and asking "What kind of car is this", it just doesn't seem neccessary.
    Dig the DragSnake though!

    Hell! I like all of the options. #3 is really cool. I would like to see the "powered by H.M" on there somewhere too. Above the wheel arches would be cool, as someone already recommended.

    This car will be awesome! Don't sweat the graphics...you could always change your mind.

    H&M probably would have used the large COBRA lettering only if Shelby/Ford was paying...
    I like three the best, but I think that if you pull the front part forward so that the door gap falls between 'Drag' and 'Snake' and between 'By' and 'Holman' it will look cleaner. You may also want to play with size to line up the gap and fill in the area behind the wheel as previously noted.

    Ya but how will the T Shirts look?

    One thought, three is it to.
     
  17. I like two. My only suggestion would be to center the graphics on the side of the car.

    No they are a good quality shirt. Perfect for working in the shop. They are very soft so good to wash the car with. At the very least now they are outdated so you could call them vintage!

    Personally, I am shipping my left overs to @loudbang (I think he knows how to get the best "bang" for the buck for them there in the far east!) RIGHT? Little inside joke there...sorry!

    DSMKII.jpg
    Or you could look at it this way. You have a DragSnake MKI shirt and now there is an MKII .... LMAO!
    That's a Cobra Joke James.

    I like option #2, but #3 would be OK

    My two cents? I like this version, but I suggest that you increase the size of the text (proportionally) to take up most of the space between the wheel arches. tapatalk_1591834158536.jpeg

    No but it could effect my delicate super ego that ultimately drives me to continually create and update build threads like this seeking superficial approval from my peers many of which remain for the most part anonymous. It could actually stimulate a need to post more or even duplicate posts in an effort to fill a void in my fragile psyche.
