[xj] Shirt decoration

Listers:

At the Thursday meeting of the British Car Club of Northeastern
Pennsylvania, there was a fellow wearing a shirt with the MG logo imprinted
above the breast pocket.

I have a picture transfer kit that allows you to transfer images printed on
special paper to cloth using a hot iron.

So I started looking for something Jaguar that I could imprint but could not
find anything suitable.

Do anyone have any ideas? It should be relatively small, maximum 4" high by
4" long, or smaller, and represent at least Jaguar, and preferably Jaguar
XJ6.

Thanks

How about a tow truck – BRG of course?! {:o] Sorry. Couldn’t resist. One
of the sketches for the leaper would be good.

By the way, my family & friends visited Littlefield’s amazing military vehicle
collection here in Portola Valley today – many pics here:

The journalist who ran the tour referred often to the engineering differences
of various countries’ approaches to tank building. Of the Russians, he said
they went for overwhelming numbers, with good guns, rather than crew
protection or longevity, as the turret castings & armor for the various
T-series tanks we saw illustrated. The American philosophy was to built
bigger, better, longer-lasting tanks that protected crews well (after losing
so many Shermans in early WWII) and could be simply field serviced. The
German approach was to build powerful, fast, complex tanks that could easily
kill other tanks, but could not be driven far and had to be trucked back to
the Mercedes factory for service (e.g., the Panther). The British (you all
know where I’m going :slight_smile: philosophy was to build big, powerful tanks of such
complexity that they ran only occasionally and were extremely hard to service
anywhere (e.g., the discontinued Chieftain). We were treated to the various
jokes about Lucas and making British engines with sparkplugs in impossible
locations, etc. But, no mention of Jaguars – phew! The Saving Private Ryan
sound track is all Littlefield’s equipment. And, when a film crew wanted to
film a running British tank, where did they come, of course? However, the Brit
tank chose not to run just on the days the crew showed up – sound familiar?
So, they took its picture and ran a German tracked howitzer around the field
instead, for sound. I asked if they had a XK-powered Scorpion light tank, but
the closest they had was a Fox.

Right now, their team is restoring a 1944 Panther that sat in a Polish river
for 45 years before being trucked out. Its Mercedes, 12cyl diesel engine will
actually run soon (a tasteful 3-pointed star on each valve cover). They also
have 2 Scud launchers, with defanged Scuds, and, most impressive, a Dragon
Wagon – it can grab a wounded tank, drag it up ramps over its rear wheels and
truck the sucker anywhere. I could have used an XJ-sized one a couple of
times.–

Lou, While I’m no WiZ on computers, I’d think you could find
something on line, even a logo from a website, then with one of the
photoshop type programs you could ‘copy & size’ it, then print it
on your special paper?–

List:

I was looking through my Jaguar material this morning and found two things
that might be suitable for use as a logo on clothing.

One is from the XJ6 pre-release press package and is a close up of the
medallion that is on the top of the S-1 grill, a gold jaguar head. The
other is similar. It’s on the cover the XK Unlimited catalogue and has the
jaguar head in a circle with some decoration around it. I know I’ve seen
the later someone else, but can’t place it.

Any comments?

Regards
Lou

I have been playing with spare dash parts (more on that in a
few days) and scanned in the dash leaper and played around
with him in Photoshop, and came up with this:

Or if you want the bigger version to play with and resize to
your liking:

You don’t have to use it as is, if you have a program like
Photoshop: in that form it’s very easy to add effects,
change colors, etc.–

Duncan:

Thanks so much for your efforts. That’s what makes this list such a
pleasure. I’ll work with that.

My project was temporarily put on hold as I bought the wrong shirt. I went
to R.C. Michaels (art supplies) to get a fresh package of transfer sheets
and the woman helping me advised to get a combination cotton/polyester
fabric since it shrinks less than 100% cotton. I need to make another visit
to T.J. Maxx (end of run clothing) before proceeding.

BTW-Are we sure the Leaper is a “him”?

BTW-2-Happy Thanksgiving to all the USA listers.

Regards
Lou

Well, using Photoshop to alter that original scan, you could
leave absolutely no doubt… but then, this is a
family-friendly site, so perhaps not…–
