    The first thing that comes to mind is white on clear, but hard to say without seeing it first hand...

    not sure if this helps, instead of white use 10% black and apply a transparency to it to achieve the fade and print on clear

    I would set up a page in PS 52" wide by the length of the fade. Set up the white to black fade, and add a little noise to it (gradient overlay layer effect has a noise setting). The noise will break up the fade, making it smoother and less "steppy." Then after the print, laminate (leaving time to out gas of course) and then use your vector program of choice to cut these out.

    And the guy driving, isn't that Skinner from Ratatouille?

    Rather than pissing hours away on replicating a factory graphic, I'd order the factory kit.

    you could do that but the black that they would print would match the car when it was new so either way the black more then likely wont match.
