Hi everyone,

Just thought I'd post what I've been doing to my R, this was more a trial kinda test to see if it goes / how well I can do it with the window / and what's it look like.

So, have I ruined my ' R ' ? let me know what you think.

This was the first time I've had a go with the wrapping and bloody tricky on the worst part of the car ie bubble window.

By the way if you're thinking - what is it ? It's a Wolf, I thought it might go with the number plate and the colouring of the car. Got my inspiration from Stewie with his La Gata Negra cats eyes look.

Night time ish !

From the mirror you can just make out an eye.
Image
Preparation...
Image
Not easy with the profile of the window...
Image
I like this one, which is the view you'd get from the car behind...
Image

So - Have I ruined my car, does it look crass, does it go with the colours or number plate - you decide !!

By the way it was cheap as chips so can be easily removed.

Cheers M. :beer:

Well it's certainly a bold statement!

Not sure it would work on many other RCZ's but since yours is so uniquely coloured and demands looking at so much already it's a yes from me! :thumbup:

Very good, Pleckers old chap! :clap:
Exhaust system now needs to be Remus like mine. :eusa-think:
Remus being one of the twin brothers (other was Romulus) in Roman mythology suckled by a she-wolf as babies.
There's a bit of culture for you! :sleeping-yellow:
Is there anyone else old enough, here, to remember the tiger tails that were given away with Esso petrol in the early sixties; you tied one to your filler cap if possible (tiger in your tank), or on the boot edge so it looked like the lid had been slammed shut on the animal. :?:

It’s not my cup of tea, but I can se how it would go on yours with the wrap & plate, although maybe a big brown bear would have been slightly more appropriate.

It does look kind of cool & I like how it’s transparent from the inside & slightly from the outside at night :thumbup:

Just looking at your photo's again, and I think number 7 puts me off from even thinking of a black panther on the rear screen.
It would scare the bejesus outa me seeing eyes in my rear view mirror. :shock: :shock: :shock:

Well thanks for your honest opinions there chaps and cheers 2retro - though you do seem in a club of your own lol.

I didn't buy it for my Z I actually got it for the other car, but then I wanted to see what it looked like on the Z.

Well I think I'll leave it on for the Italian trip and see what reaction I get, my wife said the Plod will stop me thinking you cannot see out the back window, when I show them you can, they will then " nick " me for having an illegal number plate - you all know what they're like.

They don't do a Grizzly Bear and I kinda like the Lone Wolf, anyway it was just to judge reaction and that it has, though negative, I prefer honesty rather than back talking, so, thanks for that !!

Cheers M. :beer:

C'mon, that ain't negative! :roll:
Mind you, if the eyes lit up when you braked and the horn let out a blood-chilling howl, we'd have all been ecstatic! :lol:

Just re-read your post! :oops:
Are you saying that the wolf was intended for the Leaf? :eusa-think:
Well, that would have given the leccy brigade an orgasm, I reckon! :o :lol:

This is a bit more appropriate than a "baby on board" for your striking ANIMAL. :thumbup:

But I don't think any of them will look good - just the colours are wrong for the car.

In my opinion None of the bears look any good :o but at the end of the day we’re all individuals and if you like the wolf run with it! :-) (see what I did there :lol: ) it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks as long as your happy with the look of your car. :beer:
