    Hey everyone. I just finished my project car. I had a blast working on my car and thanks to the great people at Wrapjax.com who designed the wrap for me. I know its not for everyone, however its my team.

    As a lifelong Seahawks fan, and a Boeing guy, I think both your car and license plate are super cool! Do you mind if I share a photo or two with friends?

    Very nice! Although, what does the "12" mean?

    I suspect you know the answer.

    The Seahawks invented the 12th Man concept, then found out that it was already copyrighted by Texas A&M, who has had the 12th man as a tradition since 1922.

    The school allowed the Seahawks to use the moniker for a token $5000/year.

    This year, the Seahawks have opted to drop the "12th Man" in favor of just using the number 12, since it is more of a symbol anyway, and no doubt to keep from offending all the "12th Women". I doubt the $5000 had anything to do with it -- they probably spend more than that on Gatorade per game.

    I am an Aggie and also live in the Seattle area part-time and am both a Cowboys and Seahawks fan.

    True fan to be sporting that in another state, not to mention in Texas where football is sacred. I hope you get support from other Hawks fans when you see them.

    I was just going to get the calipers Hawk green and put a 12 in the rear window and on the front doors, but I live in Seattle so no big whoop

    Too funny. A friend of mine just sent me pictures of your car on Facebook last night. She is apparently friends with one of your parents. Do I correctly infer from the plate that you fly for UA?

    Texans would like it. Texans have little or no animosity for most other states or their sports teams, with a few exceptions I won't go into here.

    Texas is the most hated state in the country, but Texans have no idea that this is the case and would be baffled if you told them that.

    I find most attempts at theming a car are pretty cringe inducing, but that Seahawks wrap looks slick. Nice design.

    P.S. My wife borrowed them to send to her Seahawks-fan relatives in Seattle.

    As a Patriots fan, the only thing nicer would be to see it get intercepted by a red, white and blue #21 right before the finish line :biggrin:. Enjoy your sweet ride.

    It seems I haven't spread enough reputation around to give you a fist-bump there, not that it matters since you're at 11... so I'll just publicly do it. :)
