First of all, thank you for the overwhelming response and feedback to the RTR-X Livery. I thought this would be a really cool way to involve everyone in the build and with over 1000 comments (a new record for Speedhunters), I would say the involvement way over-exceeded my expectations. It was really cool to see everyone's opinions and detailed thoughts on the livery – a few of you really had me thinking.
For me it was a really tough decision between "A" and "E". "A" being a bit classier while getting the aggressive point across is definitely sick. However, I think maybe a bit subtle for this project, and "E" obviously is a bit louder and to me is more fitting for this particular build. The graphite and green accents will, without a doubt, guarantee this car is unique and never mistaken for any other ‘69 out there which is very important to me.
I am happy to announce officially that "E" was the majority winner by over 100 votes and has been selected as the livery for the RTR-X! Although there might be some small tweaks as we move forward in the project, as going from paper to an actual car will bring up some unknowns.
Thanks again for being involved, I will keep you all updated as often as possible with the status of the build! SEMA 2010 – here we come!
