Hey, i think it's fine this way too, just thought id play captain obvious for a moment.
Of course, I'll be the first to admit that I'm a Web developer, not a graphic designer, and that it's for the best. If anyone would like to take my raw materials and experiment further, PM me and I'll send you the Photoshop file in layers.
I could tell you why your car won't start, or why you just can't get it to rev right, but other than building a pc and using it...i'll leave the creative stuff to you, a fine job was done and it looks a treat.
Couldn't ask you a favour could i? If you happen to get the time, perhaps there is a certain other empire that could benifeit from your talents
