Is that a 512x512 car? Looks a bit blurry.

I believe he explained it to me it was due to the Ten0r's tga to jpg system.

It's an "I saved the JPG in GIMP" car. Granted I did accidentally resize the ones I sent Ceej, but that's unrelated

I actually stopped using that one because it failed to work...seems like they use the same thing that GIMP does. Going to try to fix it

Tried it again...better?

I played with it and got GIMP to save it as a much better quality

Usually I save it as .png in Gimp then I go to paint and convert it to .jpg.

I just played with the settings for about 20 minutes until I got it to work. Good enough

The car looks good, but the numbers seem really out of place. Maybe you could change the numbers to some shade of blue that would make the scheme flow more smoothly. Or you could add more red to the car to make the numbers blend in better. Other than that, the car looks fine. Well done, sir.

The color was my attempt to match the copper that Zalman tends to use for their heatsinks. I am probably going to change it

i think the number color is fine, just maybe work some more of it into the rest of the car, i.e. spoiler tape, hood pin tape, the jack locator, etc. you do seem to have a couple issues with the base lining up, particularly in the rear and on the hood.
