    I am looking for some type of vector art that looks like metal being peeled back. This is going on the bottom of a race car to look like the sheet metal is peeling or being ripped off from the bottom going up, which then will expose a diamond plate fill.

    Anyone seen something like that or know where I can download perhaps individual files like it?

    TIA

    I don't know if Fred is still a dealer for Aurora Graphics, if so, they have some good stuff. "Ripped Metal" is the name I think. (go figure)

    No I threw in the towel on trying to be an Aurora dealer but since the poster is asking about a vector image, what Aurora offers would not fit the bill anyway.

    Here is a link to two torn metal images we have available in vinyl ready vector format.

    I should read more carefully.

    Skyhigh - I do like some of the things aurora has and I can use print graphics also. I just was thinking vector would give me more versatility to change it to fit the car.

    Thanks!

    OCA Sports has some awesome ripping metal with a baseball smashing through it

    don't know where you can get it though, unless you or someone you know

    has that collection . . . Good Luck !

    Most of OCA's old libraries are now distributed by subscription through Clipart.com. The one you're talking about is HERE.

    Just draw the rips and scan it in and add a texture or powerclip some metal to it.

    thanks for the help!

    I think I found something that'll work.
