Graphics for a C4 cop car

Anyone here enjoy designing graphics? I am looking for sugestions for what will become a police/show car for my police department. I have come up with a simple design that incorporates our dpartment crest and an eagle head, but thought if anyone here likes to do this sort of thing I'd like to see some outside ideas.
The car will be used as part of the Beat the Heat program and will be taken to shcools and other local events.
Here is the design I have so far,

Here is a side view of the car if anyone would like to play with the idea.

We need to keep the desing simple, to keep costs down and so we can use tape, insted of painting the car.
Thanks for any ideas DC members.

Hey, do you have a BIG pic of that side shot? I notice you have some high res shots in your gallery but not of that side shot.

Also, can you link me to your PD's website so I can snag the crest/eagle?

Hello. Great looking car, and I hope all of the ideas for the graphics come together in a timely manner. Just curious, but is that one of the cars that is confiscated and then driven around town as a reminder of what could happen if one "steps out of line"? Again, a curiousity question, but I know that Atlanta has lexus/corvette/camaro, etc. police cars confiscated from drug dealers to prove a point. A point well made, I might add. Good Luck with your project!

That C4 side link you just gave me is the same size as the one I said was too small for good detail.

You have a BIG version? You have other big pics of this car in your gallery, I need them as big as you have them.

Patrick,
It seems Photobuckets is resizing images uploaded and this is as big as I could get it.

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b3...an/vette-1.jpg

Check your PMs for another attempt to get the full size image to you.

Stingraze,
This is not a confiscated car. It is mine, and the project is authorized by the city and my Chief. I did this several years ago with an '85 IROC and the kids loved it. The Vette should be an even bigger hit with youngsters.
Thanks
Jim

Everything you see can be done in solid vinyl. I added some reflections just to give the image a little pop.

If your graphic guy needs some help figuring it out, have him call me.

Very cool!
What is the name of the font you used?
What program are you using to do your image manipulation?
Thanks for your help and graphics ideas.

Font is called "Vipnagorgialla". I just use Paint Shop Pro X. It's like Photoshop, just slimmed down.
