It's time for me to get started on my "blow your mind" I promised last year. My system will be down, but I'll check in on my kids machine to check for decal orders. If everything works out right I should see you with the new mod by Monday.

EDIT:
Upon further review, I must agree with Papasmurf; as the question was answered before me.
Yep, I was here, the question was defintely answered. If PapSmurf or someone else hadn't answered it, I would have before I left. I wasn't here yesterday so I couldn't respond then.

For you new folks, I often work the late shift so if Engima isn't here, I come along and do a multi-quote like this and try to follow up on things.

I've got 25 sets and they're $5.00 a set. You'll get all three sizes shown. PM me if you would like to get in on this limited run of the C.M.S.S.C. patch decals. At that price I will just cover cost, so this is mainly for you guys and girls. If the demand is good I'll have more made up. Thanks!
Gots mine!! I wanted like, a patch, a real patch to sew on my jacket. I'm happy for these though! I can use them on Mindy's Scout. Shhhhhh!! She doesn't know, still!!

Enigma can turn something like this:

Here is my last post before I closed the thread.
Case giveaway final thoughts
Well, I don't think you should give up on these things. Especially your first time doing a sponsorship like this, they don't always go easy. Just think, if Enigma never got this case, that beautiful transformation wouldn't have occured.

Blue would suit it as long as it was that matte USAF Blue. Matte or Satin finish is as shiny as you want to go. Matte or Flat colors and pastels will work the best. Navy Grey or Battleship gray will work on it, but you would need to accent it with some blue. If you will need an accent color to pull it off but painting it a High gloss Red or Blue or Green would be a disaster. Matte or Satin and Pastels will be the only way to go. If you want a black go with the Bumper coating. It goes on perfect and doesn't show mistakes or imperfections.

Use your Lighting as an third accent color as well. If you go with the bright Safety Orange use matte color for a accent and change your interior colors to white.

Here are some ideas for good paint schemes for the Scout.

With the corvette color theme See how they use the Matte Black with the shiny yet dark red. Use a black primer to get that burnt red look.


No Fair!!!! I already picked my colors!! Wait, I only have one color, hmmmm.

Yep, try gimp, try photobucket, they, photobucket.com and others like them have built in photo manipulation tools and they also don't have to be your photos. Anyone who posts thier photos to the "public" area gets a warning that it can be used by anyone.
I have 3 tools now. Photobucket, Picasa and my very old copy of photoshop elements V2.0.

Yeah, I gave up on Corel cause every time I would try to shop something, I had to study for an hour or two before I did it!

Glad you like it!! I love mine too!! Oh, a trick, I meant to tell you this before you got it.

You can set the dpi for 5000, then set the profile to run a click at half. I have to go out to make sure on this, so watch for an edit, but I set the rat to run on 4500dpi, then in the game, Bioshock, I set the sensitivity at half, then, you have your thumb aiming button, right? I set that at half again, so you have a very quick response time but as soon as it hits the game, your control is better, then when you click aim, it slows again so you can aim more precise.

I learned this trick from a guy in the RAT owners thread here on OCN, also did you download the two zip files with the pre-set profiles??

One of my old bosses used to do that with everything he purchased. He would throw away the box, the receipt, the manual, the installation disks, the warranty card, and everything else and then have the temerity to complain that something didn't work right. He was always giving me that stuff when it didn't work so I got a lot of free stuff that way. Most of it would still work correctly once you found the right drivers and configuration information.

Depends on what Corel product you are referring to. Corel is a brand (company) name, not a product name afterall. Corel's WordPerfect is STILL the absolute best word processor period. It makes MS Word look like WordPad. I'm lost when I am forced to use Word (or even Open Office or Libre Office Writer). Things that I can accomplish in seconds (aside from typing time) can take me up to an hour to do in Word.

No.. rough up the surface with 320 sand paper. Like your Scratching it and then clean it with a dust free Paper towel. Wipe it with your Very dry hands to knock off any other stuff that might have landed on it and then spray your first stick coat of Primer.
