Thx! About 25 hrs in labor, designed the graphics and font. Super happy with the results!!

It's an homage to my 70 Cuda, that I painted white and always planned to add a blue stripe but never got around to it.

Wow great job man. I know firsthand that is not an easy material to work with. It came out really well!

Thx! I like doing my own graphics work. It's about the 6th or 7th car I've done. Always a PITA, especially the hood stripe and windshield banner (each letter is a separate element, installed on top of the silver banner). Always some mild cursing involved! Also replaced the black hood badge with one that matches the car better.

I took sh*t on "another forum" for replacing my 4-spoke wheel with a 3-spoker...and stripping and re-finishing the crest on the airbag to my liking.

Screw what other people think.
