The Reaper Concept

So I'm working with this graphics company who has helped me bring to life my project. The Reaper. I know it's a used name but I wanted my car to be different and unique. So they put together this mock up for me along with the ability to bring the black and carbon vinyl to reality. So I will be ordering this set-up to turn my car into what you are looking at. Along with the Forgestar F14's in Piano Black 20" to fit the stock rubber.

Opinions please??

Love it, looks great, but I agree with above. Paint = better than vinyl.

If you can afford it that is, but if not, I say go with the vinyl.

The only thing I like about the idea of vinyl is if I get sick of it and want to change it up I just peel it off . But, I think paint would look a little classier. Hmm, decisions decisions...

Will do and thanks. The Forgestar wheels take about 5-6 weeks from what I hear but hopefully have all of the graphics done in the next week or two. I'm hoping it turns out as good as it looks on paper. Also, I am having the headrests embroidered with the little Reaper character instead of SS. Should look pretty bad A.

yeah that idea will pop in person. with the embroidered headrests, make sure its a solid design that will look like a reaper instead of a random smudge on the headrests.
cant wait to see the finished product!

Why not just buy the transformers vinyl? I think everything in that concept pic can be bought off the shelf.

Haven't really looked at the transformers concept. I don't think these particular color combinations and graphics are on the transformers car.

If u havnt looked at it how would you know?

From your image, those stripes already exist from a few different vendors. You can order them right now. With those exact same colors (black/ cf).

Not trying to be an ass or anything. I'm just sure u could save money just buying them off the shelf vs paying a premium for a company to design stripes that already exist.

Not too sure about the black vinyl on top of the rear quarter panel, but otherwise I think it looks pretty awesome!

i dig it only thing i would change is to have the full phantom grill. i think it gives the car a more aggressive look but thats just my 2 cents. I did notice that the gas cap is relocated will yours be that way?

cool idea... I'm just not a big fan of the black on the lower part of the door/fendors, I have seen that before on a Camaro and it threw me off in a bad way. To each their own though, good luck!

Better put vinyl on it to make sure you like it. If you do then paint it. If not tear it off. Once it's painted it's on there
