**8/6/10 NEW DESIGN PAGE TWO**



This is my new 2009 Honda Metropolian scooter. I just got it this week and I love it. The material is cut vinyl that I designed and cut with a vinyl graphics program. The white/gray is reflective and shines very brightly in the right light.

After much deliberation, this is the design I settled on. But if I get bored with it, I'll pull it off in a few months and try a new look.



Knitwit, holla!  Do you like the one on the mirror? I've been asked many times what it's name is, I didn't know it needed a name. Maude? Winnie Cooper? Fembot?new

So cool!  I love the cute sticker on the mirror!

As for a name? Maybe Winnie - I can imagine Winnie from the wonder years wearing a jumper with this pattern on!  Cheesy

I think Maude would be to adult  or dark colors. She never wore bright colors on the show. Winnie...I can see...she is nerdy, I even believe she grew up and became a math teacher.

However, FEMBOT, cracks me up. My husband just bought an old 1986 Honda Helix. The thing is in MINT Condition. His next purchase he wants an electric. We found on that goes  up to 70mph and can last for a decent time on it too.

May you and your new scooter have long life together.

If I can pitch a name? How about Lennie? You can call her Lynette when your angry Cheesy I really like Winnie though!

As a passionate argyle and scooter fan, all I can say is this ROCKS! Grin

Could you elaborate a bit more on vinyl process, or recommend a good tute?

Can you feel the jealousy seeping out of my pores?? Smiley I LOVE your scooter... I love the colors, I love the graphics, I love the potential names (My vote is with Maude... Metro Maude, or maybe some other old fashioned awesome name like Mabel, Marge, or Mildred Smiley). Awesome job!

Im very lucky, in that we have a vinyl plotter (the cutting machine) at work we use to dress up our work vehicles. It's more equipment than most people will have access to. The idea is similar to that of the Cricket. The vinyl is like this.http://www.beacongraphics.com/supplies/avery/a9-series-opaque.html

And the plotter is like this: http://www.beacongraphics.com/equipment/gx-24.html

However, with some vinyl, an exacto, and enough patience anyone could get the same results.

I was ready for a change from the argyle. If you don't count design time this changeout took me about three hours, which includes peeling off the old and making the new stickers. The sun/cloud design is my own. I went through many variations, but this one made me smile everytime.  





The shooting star is from a vector catalog we own. This side makes me think of a My Little Pony. It's a whole different look from the argyle. Thanks for checking it out. Oh, by the way, it's name is Winnie Cooper.
