Fake Bullet Holes
image How to look tougher than you really are. Decorate your car with fake bullet holes. They look pretty realistic, at least in the picture. I wonder how good they look close up.

These are pretty common in north Texas (guns, guns, guns!) but even from 10 to 15 feet they don't look real as they lack any depth as you move around them. In 2D pictures they look good but in 3D life they are pretty lame.

I've seen them all over PA, OH and NY. They look pretty fake in person - especially when the owner has 2 or 3 together and fails to put the shadow/highlight around the hole facing the same direction...

I saw some of these on the back of a carpet-cleaning van. Maybe it was just the angle of the lighting, but it took me a moment to realize the fakes, even from about five feet away.

Driving around, they are enough to make you look twice. But why anyone would want to make their car/truck look like it had been shot is beyond me.
