Well, I have only done a few sigs so here's what I've got so far. I think the bow tie would look pretty cool if you could send me a picture pointing directly at the one you've got!

I find it really busy... just me though I don't know what to look at lol. I like the idea thugh.

What I would do, take a screen shot of the forum and copy the grey colour, the blue of the sky out for the forum gray. Make the flag somewhat transparent (75-80% opacity>right click on the layer, Blending options in photoshop).

I know exactly what you mean, I was looking at it after I finished and it looks very full and noisy. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of saving it as a .jpg instead of a Photoshop file so now I can't go back in and edit it. Ill probably mess around with it a bit later.

crap... I usually save as .psd AND .jpg or .png (depending, a .png will let you do transparent backgrounds)

Thanks guys. Looks good.

Hope foxxie's not copywrited the "upside down" Blazer! LOL

I prefer the 1st one. the second seems a bit dark. Both seem a bit busy though.

I am thinking of maybe incorporating the pic of the dash to highlight the RHD element of this strange looking truck. After all this is what makes my truck "special". Possibly move the Kiwi bird to the bottom right corner & fit the pic of the dash into the bowtie.

I really appreciate the help guys.

Looking better. Can you shrink the bowtie slightly & move it a bit further down to the left lower corner?

Sorry to mess you around mate.
