    I've been thinking about what I can put on the exterior of my car to make it look unique.

    At first, I thought I would get vinyls and put Pac-Man with ghosts chasing him eating dots around the car.

    Then I changed my mind to...SUPER MARIO BROS. 3!

    Lol I was thinking of getting these sprites: http://img409.imageshack.us/img409/2399/carmockb.png

    And putting the first row on one side of the car, and the other row on the other side.

    My car: http://img291.imageshack.us/img291/3927/0829100950.jpg 1997 Camry

    ignore my finger rofl

    Anybody got suggestions if I should do this or not? Should I change any of the 'sprites'? Would this be a terrible fail?

    (The vinyls will have a one pixel white outline, so it won't look bad with black on black)

    Yeah, it would be fail unless done extremely well. If you're going to do it, I would recommend getting a professional to do it.

    Even if it is done right, though, you'll just look really immature. Neat, but immature.

    Yah that's the thing, you're pretty much spot on, if I was going to do it right, I'd make it a whole level scene, otherwise it'd just look odd. I'm on the fence about it, it's cheap but would it look good? I don't know.

    try photoshopping the sprites onto you're car and see what it looks like.
    But as monkat said, you'll need a pro for this. It is very hard to do.
    I wouldn't do it with those sprites, makes you look a bit immature and it's not something you'll get compliments with. Otherwise, you'll be very recognisable for other gbatempers [​IMG]

    Why don't you just stick a picture of Temper or just a single Ninty Character on the back of the boot lid. If you keep it understated and it won't look to bad.

    I would go with Pac-man instead of Mario because of the simplicity in forms and colours. A bit of yellow on black. [​IMG]

    That's what I'm thinking, try to get some small stickers for the trunk or even my back bumper.

    Now I got to go measure my trunk space.

    if GBAtemp sold vinyl stickers of Temper similar to the one, but perhaps a little smaller, than the one above, how many people would buy one. You could stick them to windows, cars, mirrors, fridges.

    I would probably get a couple.

    Alright, so the only place to really put it, is on the back bumper:

    The trunk (it's open...forgot to close it lol) has no room to place stickers so the bumper is the best spot.

    I measured it to have 3" vinyls.

    Would it be good if I did pac-man along that or no? I'll make a mockup in a few minutes.

    my car, is a 97 toyota also, I put my bumper stickers on the bumper where you showed them. I recently took them off, because I realized I like a clean car.
    the only other place, I found to put stuff, is on the corners of the back window.
