Just a few photos of the process involved in making a Hyper Blue MCS into a promo car for Home Building Society.

We have a BEP Cooper to do also...

These cars are being used for stunt driving at Gloucester Park for Telstra Rally Australia. I have been told that there will be high speed paralell parking using nothing but the handbrake...along with high speed reverse flicks etc...

I'll get some photos and video of the cars in action when they appear...

Double post to add, is it just me, or does that MINI look dropped on its guts? :D :p

Great job Patrick!!

I like the photochopping too... where did you get the idea for that:p

Lima, I saw a HB/W the other day and i can tell you it is a worthy replacement to my ol' favourite Indy Blue...

In the next month or so, my car may just sit that low too...;)

Look at the way it makes the S side vents stand out...

Here is the finished article...a roof shot and all the logos.

This was a Hyper Blue with white roof and sunroof. It has also been dumped and bigger rims were put on in Photoshop...

I know how you aould all like 19" original wheels... I would...lets put some pressure on Mini..?

BEP Cooper tomorrow...!

So where do you get the HB metallic stuff from?

That looks superb... what is the length of time that takes you?

Its not an exact match, but the windows break up the two colours.

This is the 14th of these I have done with this design. The first took two of us 6 hours, this one took about 5 hours by myself.

go to www.response-graphics.com and have alook at what we do...

Thanks mate,

I checked your website out a few months back... pretty neat stuff

I read FHM and saw your work on the mini in there advertising the competition...

Putting two and two together, you are also married to an FHM girl and did a Cooper to advertise her entry in a competition?

Back to your cars...

Do you find there are any wrinkles in the final product, or does it smooth on really well?

I am married to the girl on the FHM Mini...and I did also do the graphics for FHMon the car as a promo in Perth...

I don't do wrinkles or bubbles of any description...I don't know how you could suggest such a thing.

I set the standard for graphic application in Australia... 3M and Avery ring me for advice on application problems...not the other way round.

I am hurt by your suggestion of wrinkles...my wife doesen't have any either...!!!

As promised, pictures of the BEP, but it looks like Indi blue...????

alexpalex,

Firstly, the work on the Cooper looks great.

And secondly, those shots are probably the best representation Ive yet seen of the BEP. Way more 'purpley' that I had anticipated, and much more vivid that in looks in other pics.

Cheers,
Scotty

Hue and Saturation in Photoshop...brings up the colours a treat...!
