... a hearty "Hi-yo Silver" - the Loan Ranger and Pronto car!

FYI, "Pronto" is a delivery service-- "When you need it pronto!"

Sorry, but I thought that was funny... Very Happy

But yes, it is spelled "Loan" on purpose. I almost made it the "Loan Arranger" but went with the above instead.

Thanks for the awesome render, but I see where I forgot to pull the rear mask layer up above the 3D max layer. I'm going to edit the first post with the new flat.

Did you click on the link first?!

Did a little more tinkering:



I kind of liked the semi black and white look to the Ranger on the hood because I felt it gave it more of an old western feel, but thought I'd try to colorize it some anyway to see how it's look. I also changed to color of the Ranger on the sides as well to match that of the hood.

Opinions?

It looks more like a PSI car with a colorized ranger, and it fits with the scheme a bit better.



Though, what I would recommend for the exhaust, take the exhaust port from the predator or another default cup car, and then shrink it to the width of the actual exhaust port on your car, place said shrunk exhaust where the default exhaust is then hide the default exhaust.

A good example would be say... from the car I just made:



Notice where the exhaust is and how it looks like? That's the way I'm suggesting (though not as high but in the oldsmobile's default exhaust location)

Try making the numbers the same color as the Loan Ranger text.

I made them silver because of the Lone Ranger/ silver bullet connection-- but I'll give it a shot a bit later. I initially tried to make the #1 an actual silver bullet but it didn't look right with the #6.

I also put silver bullets lining the black spoiler because I thought it looked like a gun belt.

I like that a lot better. Very Happy

Do you mind tossing the Loan Ranger logo my way? Because I want to stick that on Griffith's car (which has been done for a few days).

No problemo. I'm putting the finishing touches on this and I'll be sending you my ratings along with # plates shortly. Haven't gotten around to pit crews yet though... Razz

Check this out:

Britt Reid, son of Dan Reid, Jr., and great nephew of the Lone Ranger, John Reid, becomes the first Green Hornet. Not sure if that's canon or not, but it was still pretty interesting.

Thanks, but I'm disappointed that no one realized that the last version is on a completely new template-- courtesy of our very own Ceej! Thanks Ceej for all your help in getting this from idea into reality.

Also disappointed that no one noticed the driver suit!

I really like my Loan Ranger logo-- but I think it could be better. Attached here is the progression I made from each logo enhancement to the present.



I started with the original image I got from a Google search on the far left. I colorized it (the middle image has that comic book dot kind of look going for it) and then tried to do some shadow/shading on it. I thought it turned out pretty well, but the Ranger's face looks a little blurry to me. Anyway, I think I did fairly well with my limited skills but I think this logo needs more to "put it over the top" and that's why I am posting this in here.

Basically, I really want the image to have the guns removed from the Ranger's hands and instead have his fists full of cash/dollars. I still want the Ranger to have his gloves on though and I'm not adept enough to pull it off. I also want the Ranger's holsters to have some bills sticking out of the top-- sorta like he just reached in his holsters, grabbed handfuls of bills and was displaying what kind of dough he had to "loan" you. I tried to use other hand/cash images but they weren't in the correct position to line up with the way the Ranger's arm is positioned.

Any help with this one?

I opted for the fictional "Pronto Delivery Service" instead:



The logo is on the sides, in front of the #s, and a little below the TMMC decal.
