Exclamation AWD warning sticker

GROUP BUY going on now. We need 10 more people for the group buy!! If you are interested, please follow this link. http://www.i-club.com/forums/showthr...hreadid=130339

This is something I've been working on for my car. Since I partially debadged the back, I'm a little nervous about having my car towed and the tower not knowing my car is AWD.

Just wondering if anyone else is interested in something like this. Also, I'd appreciate any feedback, suggestions, improvements, etc etc.

If anyone wants, I can send you the Illustrator file, or a tiff, eps, postscript,, whatever you want.

Personally, I'd like to have this printed out on that plastic stuff that sticks to glass (then it doesn't leave sticky stuff and can be taken off easily). Then, I'd probably have two, slap them on the inside of the windows when I'm parked somewhere with the possibility of being towed.

thats a real cool idea! When i go downtown the rules change like once an hour on where you can park, what time, and for how long, its real stupid, at least this way they can't say they didn't know. i'd want one!
late,
Chris

you kow for a fact that they will not pay for damages, even if every rim had that on it they would say they didnt see it and its not there fault...

i would get one if you sell them its a great idea!

side note: every tow truck driver should know not to wheel lift a subaru, everyone is awd...where i work on a AAA call or any other call if its subaru its flatbed...

Joelk,

I'd like a copy of that file please in original Illustrator format, for use here in NYC, home of the meanest tow trucks around.

I know what kind of plastic you're talking about, and I think I might know a place that could do something like that. I'll look into it.

ok, I've had a couple requests for the illustrator file. Let me clean it up a bit so it's more print ready. Also, right now it is in Illustrator 9, I can convert it to 8 if you need.

I'll post a link so you guys can download it.

Yea, I would love to have something like that as long as the sticker is the type you put on the inside of the glass.

I like it. I think I'd just stick one on my front skid plate though so if the tow truck driver gets under there he'd see it. Keep us informed.

Good idea thanks for the file. Tow truck drivers are dumb especially if they are called by the PD. And especially if they are towing a lot of cars they have tow fests here people aernt allowed to park on certain streets when the street sweeper goes by so they tow like 20 - 30 cars on those days!

And I would think that they are liable expecially if you have a sticker. If they are a professional licensed insured towing company they should know not to tow AWD on 2 wheels. A friend had a tow truck rip off half his bumper once and they paid for the bumper. Thats why they are insured too so its not going to be the tow company thats going to pay for it it will be their insurance company.

Ill take one, I have a lot of unpaid parking tickets, and I think they might tow me next time, or give me the boot.

Ok, looks like there is a bit of interest out there.

I am going to change the file a bit so there are only three colors. (black, orange and white). I'll make the red X orange instead. That should make printing a bit cheaper.

When I get back to work next week I run some test prints and see how it looks on paper. I can probably ask some of my coworkers about vinyl printing too.

But, right now I'm off to help my friend trade in his volkswagon for a subaru, should be fun.

Great idea! I have an inside line on printing these puppies up on a vinyl static cling sticker. I should have pricing on this later today. If there is enough interest I can buy in bulk and then pass the savings along to everyone. How does that sound?

Okay, here is the scoop. For a very nice 3X5, three color vinyl static cling sticker, the cost will be 12.00 for a set of two (one for the front and one for the back) including USPS shipping. I for one think that this is a great idea. I'm sure they can be done cheaper but this being printed on a quality stock that will last for years. Cheaper stock will fade from the UV rays since it's gonna be on your windshield. IF there is enough interest, I will do this. I need for at least 25 people to join in on this and pay the 12.00 in advance to have them printed.

BYBYV8, sounds good. I'll buy one set for sure, maybe two. Thanks for getting that info.

I would like to clean up the file a bit, make it look a bit more profesional, I can do it this weekend. I will upload the new files and post a message when I'm done.

So, last chance for any suggestions or changes.

Thanks JoelK, I would only suggest changing the orange to red vs. red to orange. Red seems to stand out more anyway. Would it be best for me to go to the admin on the site and set up a GP on these? Again, I need at least 25 people to do this before I can get these made.

Yeah, I was thinking about that. Maybe we need to take a vote and see what car everyone wants on the decal.

WRX Sedan
WRX Wagon
2.5RS Sedan
2.5RS Coupe
OBS / plain-ol' Wagon

what I will need is a scan of a side-view illustration of your car from your owner's manual, or a very good side view photograph.

This first run, I think they all have to be the same, but if there's enough interest I'm sure some different ones can be made.

I'll see what looks best on the decal, I was thinking orange because that seems to be common on most warning stickers.

I will try to have the illustrator file finalized by sunday, and I'll post a new GIF. Once everything is pretty much final, then we probably should set up a group buy.

I would be in for a set. Now for the voting, I think the red would look better than the orange (better attention getter/seems more serious). I think the car in the picture should be a WRX sedan (but then again I'm a bit biased). I'm sure there would be a lot of interest in this if it where 'sticky' or in the Vendor-GB Section.
