    [​IMG]That reminds me of Hamlin's 2013 car with the Fedex colors. It's a really nice design. Great job by the RCR design team

    For the love of God Childress, WRAP THE WHITE AROUND THE DECKLID AND REAR! It would make it look 100x better!

    I agree, but we were told it had to have a black rear.

    I'm honestly really surprised this scheme has gotten as good of a response as it has. I love the red, it makes me think of a chemical company. I think there needs to be more of it in the front, then have the same thing flowing from the number to the end of the quarter panel... in white. It looks unfinished right now.

    Couldn't you even do what Junior did with the black rear end, and at least let it hit the decklid? It just seems silly to have it end like that.

    @crazyboy335 yes, it can go onto the decklid, just not the rear. I want to see a white decklid on this, but it already looks like the 22 Xfinity car to me... I won't be able to unsee it with a white decklid.

    I still prefer the paint scheme from the past 3 years. But it is decent.

    This is head and shoulders above the current scheme. The current scheme looks like a mockup that the current Hendrick designers used to get hired at RCR.

    Hope this means the Cheerios scheme is getting a makeover as well...

    The red gradient turning to black on the nose itself is my favorite part. Really would love for those in charge to change their minds about the rear of the car, for the sake of making the whole car look a lot better. But either way, great work, the car looks good.

    Personally, not a fan of the rear being black, also, why the random white roof? For the spotter?

    It's out of respect for Earnhardt's mother. This way the red number stays as the icon in medias. Remember, her only wish was that the number didn't look like Dale's.. which is also what led to RCR changing their font back in '13, and finalizing it in '14.

    1. I haven't seen any change in the font except for the numeral "6" in the #62. The 6 used to be a flipped 9, now it has a very ugly horizontal stroke.

    2. The media uses door numbers not roof numbers (with a few exceptions like Fox with the Code3 car, and formerly the Dollar General #20), so it's gonna be a white #3 on a black background with a red outline just like Dale's.

    All this may have been true at some point in the past but I'm pretty sure Phoenix either works for RCR or has some kind of inside information there from a trusted source so I have to imagine he knows what changes were made to fonts and all that stuff.

    I'll be able to show you the changes later in the day. The 3 is much more round, and the 6 is awkwardly warped.
