Hood Decal (Plasti Dip Instead)

So I've seen a couple of nice hood decals, I'm thinking of copying a decal and plasti dipping the hood instead of purchasing the decal. It would be a fun project and much cheaper. Here's an idea, what do you guys think? I'm also thinking of doing the roof to match the black of the hood design, thoughts?

I'm thinking it should come out real nice. You will also save some $$$$ and have a good time doing it. Go for it!

Please post pics when you finish.

I like that design but you're not going to put any kind of text are you?

I like how wide those stripes are. They'd look great if they were that fat but even spaced in the middle all the way to the front. Like this

Yeah.. i'm inclined to copying the decal design on the pic.. I have from 3pm today til about 6:30 to work on it, but i think i'm doing either the roof first or the rear deck lid, that way i'll get a bit more practice before I take on the hood.

Update... What do you guys think? I just need minor trimming around edges and I'll be good. Not sure about the fuel door, what do you guys say? Keep it or back to white?

Nice!! Do you trim the edge once it's dry or does it come out clean edge like that? I noticed mine left some edges not as clean.

I used a razor blade and put it against the plasti dip at te edge of the tape and peeled the tape back as long as te razor blade was then moved the blade gave it a nice edge
