Spring pics of my 185 baby.

Fri Apr 15, 2011 12:56 pm

I added the first shot to the "post your car" thread, but didn't want to saturate that post with pics of my car as they trickle in. I had a buddy from work take some pics of my car with his SLR and he is slowly getting the photos over to me. So within the next week or so I have to have quite a few nice pics of my baby.

First shot has some post effects done to it - kind of like HDR but only applied to the car itself.

Another image without all the post processing - just some color correction.

Profile View. (For the record, every upload site I use is making the red a darker shade than the originals...more like a Maroon than a SUPER red. grr)

I'm looking forward to seeing yours. Grey is the only color that I personally like as much as the super red. Some days I wish my car was grey some days I love that it's super red.

Its a shame I did not get mine painted Grey. ;) Hope to unveil the new paint end of next week.

What? I thought it was an exotic Silver/grey color? Blast - I hate waiting.

Its a dark silver. I personally think Silver and gray are two very different colors, so it may be a difference of interpretation is our case. ;)

So what car is the plate bracket your using for?

No braket. I drilled holes in the license plate to line up with the stock holes in the RC bumper......and then I attached a plain ole metal black plate frame to the plate using the default holes on the plate with a couple of shallow nuts and bolts......then wire ties on the bottom to keep the thing from rattling. In hindsight some foam or rubber on the back of the plate where it touches the bottom of the bumper would have been better on my paint probably.

Looks good! Paint looks clean.

First pic is pretty damn stellar.

The second pic could have used a polarized filter over the lens (reduce the glare and even a bit of the reflection off the winshield).

Your car always looks clean, keep it up!
