I want everybodies opinion about side graphics on cube... I want to make it look pretty like a race car I guess? like... fast and furious movie kind... ive yet to get my cube but within a month or so I am expecting to have one. I was wondering whats the best way to put on graphics on the side of the car.

Should I bring it to the shop and get it painted? or

Do vinyl graphics? im not sure... help?

Well... as the worlds top expert of my opinion ;D are ya ready..... it depends.
If you know what you want "for sure" and have a painter that you know and trust, paint looks best. Especially if you have airbrush graphic work done.

on the other hand.. :-\

Vinyl has improved greatly in quality of material and graphics transferability. It also has the benefit of removal if you want to change or don't like it. But it is still vinyl.

I suggest you look at other rides with graphics that you find appealing and see what they are. Go to a car show or meet to get a good variety. Cost may also be a factor to consider. Paint will likely be more expensive. 8)

In my opinion, this would look terrible. The Cube is not a race car... think more along the lines of i.Robot, futuristic 60's style, etc.

Designers find it helpful to dig up photos of things that are similar to what they are thinking. It helps them to try & put a finger on that image they have in their head. Yuo might try this before spending any money :)

:D Marginally :D

Where do you find this stuff :D

Can you imagine a house with that. :sick:

Most of the graphics options I have seen do not look that great on the cube, my opinion.

please don't do it :sick: if you simply must add something to the exterior, do a tasteful custom pinstriping or put some stickers in the windows.

My Wife and I agreed on vinyl graphics, purple on red cube. I spent 42 yrs in the body/paint shop business and like my choice more each day. They cost a tenth as much as paint and are easy to change if you get bored with present ones. Lots of good comments. bill

I like vinyl stickers on cars, as long as they aren't overly done, and fit the design of the car, hence the stars on my Cube! ;)
