I am about ready to get my truck painted. It is basic white and I would like to liven it up a bit. I have looked at motorhomes as a guideline, but the cost of doing something like the real nice is just too much.

Earlier I was talking to Hoser, he thought there just might be someone here that is talented at photoshop or something similar.

The current plan is to paint the box white with a dark grey or silver stripe along the bottom, starting at the front bumper and going all the way back. Combined with this would be some sort of graphics on other parts of the truck. Attached are some vinyl sticker I found that might work, checkered flag on the air dam, stripes or flowing flags or whatever. I would like for it to look like it has something to do with motorsports, but not just Drakarts since it might also haul something else. For reference, the truck is 9 feet tall, the box is 12 feet long and overall it is about 20 feet long.

Prize will first and foremost be my undying gratitude, and off course, a case of Colorado Coolade.

There is a place in El Paso that does grafics for 18 wheelers, trucks and trailers... He would have the capabilities to do the larger stickers and then send them in a tupe for you to apply...
I just can't remember the name of the place off the top of my head, but I'll try googleing it later...

All of those names are missing what it is carrying, a Drakart

Let's see......key words, Drakart, Tiger, Odyssey, Pilot, Association, Riders, Owners..........

DTOPARO, TOPAR, DOPRA, DOPO, PODA, don't like any of them.

I got it, wait, not I don't....

I would be interested to see what they might charge, the samples I posted run from 20 to around 35 bucks apiece, they are a variety of sizes, some of the longer ones are 22" or so tall and about 8 to 10 feet long.

I see there work alot, they have the capability to do a 53 foot trailer so I thnk they would be set up for the sizes you need as opposed to those set up for auto's and Pickup trucks...

Not bad, nice and simple, I should do something like that instead of getting too carried away.

You got my ramp door built yet? Oh, I forgot to give you the dimensions.....87 inches wide and 71 inches tall.

Door itself should be fast and easy fab up in one day its the details like the hinge that gets complicated
if the door is mounted back where current door is can it hinge down and clear bumper?

You remember the hinge details on my door I made my own using pipe and a steel rod, I welded the pipe to the door and to the back of the bus...


Then their is the latch to keep it closed you will latch it from inside or have some sort of bar thing on the outside?

That is way sweet, too bad it doesn't have anything to do with "Drak"man!

Great job on the design.

Hey Pepetio that photo your using is a guy I know here in Australia known as Aussieduner. That photo was in ATV Action mag back in 2005. Where did you come across that photo in Spain?. Actually it was that particular article that got me hooked into importing my Pilot.

Hey Pepetio what program are you using to do your graphics?

Maybe you can do it again but go here and get some Drakart pics http://drakart.com
