Water-soaked air cleaner? Are you sure? That would make more sense in a swamp-cooler than in an air cleaner.

I really don't know for sure, it has me stumped. It's plumbed right to the throttle body. It was dry when I got it. There's no filter anywhere. It could have been removed before I got the car. If anyone can shed some light on it that would be great.

And you are mixing it with the epitome of an Eco car.
How's this look?

The 1946 Chevy - (2001) Prius on that makes it stand out even more.
I like the fact that is is an 'old' Prius too. I'd add the year.

Maybe drop in a shade of the Creation of Adam by Michelangelo as a background?

Shrink it a little to give it some margin. Brush paint it in washes and then buff it with a 3M pad to match the patina.

RedDevil — How about just cat eyes in those tabs at the top and bottom?

I think longterm I would prefer low key signage, myself. Stressing it to match the patina of stressed paint is a good idea too. So i might make it smaller and quite faded. Over time, I think the novelty might wear off. That's just me.

The margins are better. Photoshop (or whatever) has a Skew function that would align the verticals as well. Maybe different width margins on the badge and the banner.

But that's art criticism; feel free to ignore it.

I think you shouldn't make it so clear that it has Prius guts in that sign. Try to make it quite like a teaser.
