Go vinyl for it all. Then if you don't like, want to change, or sell the car it's removable. Find a reputable shop and they can easily do that for you and make it look top notch. Good luck!

Easily can be done. If you were close to Orlando I'd be able to help.

The Iron Cross is not related to the Nazis. I think you could come up with a design that would look great. And kill marks would be cool! Look into some of the insignias used on the planes during WW1 and perhaps incorporate them into your theme. That would seperate you from bikers and others that use the cross.

So I have come to a little bit of a hiccup in my plan. I'm going to go into my own photography business (weddings, portraits) I wanted to use my Mini as my "company car" since it would be very memorable compared to a "normal car." But in using it as a company car, the Red Baron idea isn't very professional. I REALLY want to do this with my car, but don't want to turn people off. My boyfriend said I could use his car for it, but a green Jetta doesn't really stick out. I wanted to see what people's idea were.

Any ideas? Thoughts?

You can do magnetic signs to advertise the wedding business and still have a RED Barron theme. Just not as radical with the graphics. It could be done in very good taste. Anything with the Mini is going to be memorable anyway. The point is that if someone sees you ad on the Mini they will remeber it to call you.

Red Baron Photography. We take the shots that win battles!

In all seriousness though, I like the concepts, but might not be the best for a company vehicle.

The magnetic signs are a great idea, cuz you can overlay them on the iron cross decals. It can work, and we can help. Believe me...

You can get a magnet sign in just about any grapic and shape you want. So you can have your business idea and still have some cool decals depicting the theme RED BARRON on your Mini.
