The dot of the "i" is attached and the lowered section between the top of the "i" and the dot doesn't show up quite so much in other color combos, but with the contrast between white and black being so high it does look like a "l" instead of "i". Perhaps just a dab of white out correction fluid in the lowered section would be in order just for photos? Staging is everything, so they say.


I dropped $10k on this project and you want me to take white type writer correction fluid to it?  :o :banghead:

Well, I thought even you might be outta money at this point. Apparently not eh?
OK deep pockets, spring for a dab of white Plasti Dip paint and fill in that little low point.

Nah, it's not a $ thing FM, I've been running these badges on all the sets so far, they are the oem ones. I don't think they look bad, I think it's just the shadow in that one pic that you're referring to, plus it would be very hard to find a white that matches the white of the bodywork exactly, and would look cheap IMO if not a 100% perfect match...  :-\

It's not that important, but just to be clear. (aka  :deadhorse:)
Understanding that it looks very good in person (I saw it on the red version up close in Cortez)
 I was just referring to using it temporarily at studio time (photo shoots) so that the dot stands out. I don't think the color match would be that important on such a small area in a photo, but just enough to tell it's an "i" and not a "l". Definitely remove the white out/Plasti dip/white tape after the photo shoot is done, because you are correct it would look cheap. As new folks come into the fold that aren't familiar with your work, they are going to see the photos and ask what's a Kawasak"l". I'm just trying to save you the repetitive headache.  :banghead:

I will say no more about the "i", as I think I've thoroughly killed that horse. It was gPink that led the poor animal into the killing field.  ;D

I do not know about that- it may be an unachievable amount. Or did you mean the dues and not 'The price'?

I can't remember what color wheel choices you have, but gold on the all-blue bodywork might look cool.

What am I saying??? "Might look cool"?? Why don't I just photoshop it! Well then I will! But can't right now  :-\ (must try to stop talking to self)
