OK... Hi.

Stupid question.

I'm sure it's been asked by newbs for eons.

Where do some of y'all, (namely drivinonthinice and hotscort in their sigs and Skuce as his avatar AND in his sig) get the bases for those cute little pixel-icons?

I've found all sorts of imports, but never have I found a scort (preferably 2nd gen GT, so i can more easily Photoshop it to make it look like mine.) set, other than your already-customized renditions.

So yeah... any info would be awesome. *puts on fire-proof suit*

:D

a pixelscort like mine? I stole mine from someone else... If ERDT were still around it would be much easier because there were several different ones on there... If your car is green with white stripes, feel free to steal mine :D

Heh... mine's white... but I might steal yours anyway, as a template.

You wouldn't happen to have the .gifs lying around, would ya? that'd make editing 'em beaucoup easier than the jpeg-compressed ones. :)

Thanks. :D

Yeah with photoshop you can make some cool sigs, all mine have been PS'ed. but those little pixelly ones are pretty neat too. EvoScort is on here too, if you haven't already just PM him and ask about them.

If you've got some digital pics of your car I'd even be happy to photoshop them for you. Lemme know if you're interested, I have been messing around with it a lot more recently so they have gotten better than the one I have down there.

okay, DeathSlinger, I just ned to know one more thing. what dimensions do you want you sig to be? do you want it shorter and wider like mine, or taller and narrower like James'? or do you want one that is just all around large?

Oh and the old editor reflexes in me wanted to let you know that it is a GARTER belt, not "guarder"... car looks nice by the way.

probaby more along the lines of your dimentions.

oh, and thanks for the spelling correction. i almost wish cardomain had spell-check (even though i spelled "guarder" correctly - still the wrong word).

Hey Misfit.

Wanna do one for me too (I'm a lazy sumbitch)? You'll have to put your renewed dating life on hold, of course.

Some info you'll need regarding colours: the car was originally a red LX. Then, the body started to rust really bad, so I just let it get worse. At about the time that some of the body panels had rusted away to the point of non-existence, my hood flew up on me, shattering my windshield going 100 km/hr down a two lane highway at midnight while towing my boat (that my friends, will give you a nasty case of the hershey squirts).

I promptly went to the junker and replaced all removable body panels (hood, hatch, front doors, grille, front fenders) with those from a green GT of similar vintage. Even some of those panels are rusty (passenger front fender, hatch). The one big original body piece that is unremovable has rusted almost completely through where the antenna is mounted and the rear fender areas are extremely rusted to the point where you could steal my rear speakers by reaching in through the holes.

My Escort isn't worthy of wasting hard drive space for a pic, so you'll have to base everything on the description above. If in doubt, assume there's rust or dings. I'm not sure if the thing truly has a predominant colour any more. I only used one of the three hatch spoiler pieces from the GT. Naturally, I still haven't replaced the windshield either. There's a massive, completely rusted hitch on the back too that is by far the strongest part of the car.

See if you can pixel-scort that!! How's the mental movie? Does it give you nighmares too? I plan to get four more years out of it (have to get to 500,000 km).

Fellas, you just have to see it to believe it.

Well, I'd love to do that one for you, but unfortunately I don't work well with pixelated objects. I mainly work modifying and laying out pictures. Learned the skill when I was a newspaper editor, and started dabbling in it again recently during down-time at college.

Like I said before, if anyone wants a picture spread or sig or anything photoshopped I'll be happy to do it, just please bear with me, or give me suggestions. I usually just do what I think looks good, but as we all know people have varying tastes, so if there is something specific you want then let me know, I'm happy to do my best.
