My **attempt** at making a unique decal

It's the general look I was going for but it didn't turn out as planned lol. The notches are spaced weird, though I was going for the offset look, it didn't turn out as planned.
Thoughts?

Are you viewing it from an iPhone? The last picture I took, silverskoundrel said the picture quality was terrible from his iPhone but it was great from his computer.

It looks a little better when I look at it on the full site from my iPhone. I guess the app dumbs down the quality.

Also, I noticed you caught some glare. That's probably part of the reason it's fuzzy on the app.

This is what I see.

But it looks good. Is there any rhyme or reason why you spaced it out like that? Just curious.

It was just a rough draft. I plan on keeping the design but pushes the notches towards the end in a linear fashion.

That's cool. I did a similar graphic on a cavalier back when I was a teenager. It came out great. I taped it all out and used about 4 coats of gloss black spray paint. I sold the car a long time ago and every once in a while ill see it cruising around. It still looks good.

It was kinda like...

I plan on making some permanent changes soon, but first I have to perfect a technique and see how I REALLY want it. Is regular spray paint even good for cars?

That's what I used. You could pick up some automotive grade spray paint from an auto parts store or just use some plasti dip if you are reluctant to make it permanent.

Lol I swear by plastidip. Although I did my rims about 4-5 months ago, I took the dip off of them today and it SUCKED. 2 hours, alot of elbow grease, and easy off(yes, the oven cleaner, and it worked GREAT. Eliminates plastidip and brake dust like no other, and even shined the rims up a bit.) later, it all came off.


I've never ran into it being so hard to peel off, even though it was on there pretty thick. I guess it was due to me never actually getting on hands and knees and cleaning them myself. I'm going to post before and after pictures tomorrow to get your opinions on whether or not I should just re-do the black rims or leave it off.
