Very cool! :) That reminds me of the '67 Vette from Austin Powers that was painted like the flag.

No, not painted. Not a decal. It's simply a "special effects" thing, done digitally on the computer to evaluate the concept.

I took a shot of my car, and the flag, and manipulated the flags perspective and rotation to match that of the "plane" of the rear fascia. Then masked the area and inserted the flag, allowing the underlying luminance to remain so that it would contour and shaddow like it was really there.

I wish it were real, like a giant static-cling piece that I could apply and remove whenever I wanted. Now wouldn't that be cool.

Thanks for the response. It really does look great!! Maybe their is a market niche for producing such a decal?? Your idea may not be too farfetched. Hmmmm..... I have seen a few pictures in Vette magazines of C5's that have been completely airbrushed with American flags. There is one Vette that a woman from IL drives that is absolutely incredible; just alittle too much for me.
