Nearly three years ago, Code Four supporter Mike K. came across an all-white VW Volkswagen Beetle. Much like us, he saw the possibilities of turning this all-white ‘canvas’ into a glorious soccer ball masterpiece.
While we farmed out the work to create our Code Four Soccer Ball Bug, Mike did it all himself: ordering decals on the Internet, using the hood of an old Ford as a test run, utilizing black wrapping paper to hone his skills, and then finally applying the finished graphic pattern to his baby.
Says Mike: “The Laws of the Game require defenders to be at least 10 yards away from the ball during a free kick. Same goes here. The decals look good from more than 10 yards away, but no so good up-close.” He’s just being humble! We think it looks great.
At first, Mike used black wrapping paper to simulate the ball pattern.

The finished product. Vanity plates came a few days later.
The jerseys also included each child’s name on the back with #11, representing the year in which the school was founded. Code Four Athletics worked with the school’s co-founder, April Shiosaki, to supply the jerseys. April found us through Googling ‘soccer uniforms’ and we’re so glad she did!
The Code Four Athletics Soccer Ball Car showed up during the jersey presentation, adding “icing on the cake” to the day’s events, according to April, who took TONS of pictures of the kids with the Car. Thanks, Blossoming Hill!
We just came across the coolest car accessory ever: soccer ball car rims. The Header, as it’s called, is made and distributed exclusively by Full Moon Wheels out of North Carolina, and comes in machine finish and black-and-red finish.
