I understand that you might be a firefox fan, but if you're going to pick one browser to support, IE has way more marketshare. Why do you need to browser sniff anyway?

This car is wrapped pretty nicely but this project has not shown much life lately. If this
car was in the Daytona 500 around 20-30 million TV viewers would be seeing it for 4-5 hours.

the project has tons of life, we are only getting started, we are running into issues getting the designs down but once the art is in we are ready for production and installation across the country. Roughly a little over 600 cars ready and waiting with their owners ready to drive them around the highways and like the signature says below, the wraps work 24/7. It would be awesome if you forwarded the message that we really need help with a little graphic design as that is the only element holding us back. We would also like to have links to your website and vice-versa asap to get attention to both efforts. there are so many god ideas out there! RP has to win! and that means we all win.

these two projects seem to compliment one another nicely!


Thank You

people are working on these efforts on their own time after they are done working all day and should be spending time with their families. Because this website was created by donors rather than bought and paid for, we cannot force them to work faster or harder. They are working for the good of the cause for free like many of us here in the forums are doing ourselves.

instead of complaining about the lack of features maybe you could help us by donating your time to getting these issues and certain bugs fixed.

it is in my opinion that sometimes donating your time is more cost effective than donating your money or downtalking ideas in the forum without offering help or alternatives ect.

but those are just my two cents that btw, aren't worth two cents because they were created out of thin air then beaten into submission by inflation.

I'm not downtalking the idea... and I just made a faulty assumption that you coded it. I'm just saying there's rarely a legitimate reason to browser sniff. Maybe you have one. Coding isn't really my thing, and cross-browser stuff really isn't, but maintaining more than one set of code makes things nightmarish.

I'm fully behind what you're doing. I have a big decal, and I've been advocating decals since I've been here. For name recognition, it beats anything IMO. I spent 15 minutes putting a decal on, and it's probably reached more people than a few weeks of signwaving would.

thank you for clarifying it makes a huge difference knowing you were giving sonstructive criticism. I def. think this is a great idea, just can't wait to see the first one actually on a car.

Since you're open to some constructive criticism, I can't tell (from the site) if a full wrap is required. If so, I think you should also do simple window decals. I can personally think of several reasons why I might want not a full wrap, even at no cost to me.

Here's what I currently have. It can be easily read from 20 cars back at a stoplight. (partially because of the height, but the lettering is big too.)

Not only will you get more takers if you include things like that as an option, but you'll also probably get more volunteers for installation. That was the first one I ever did, took 15 minutes, and was no big deal. I'll even volunteer to install something like that in my area. There's about zero chance I can mess up someone else's car putting that on.

Go ahead. If you'd like to source those, it came from someone on ebay. I can find their contact details if you want them.
