Me repainting me car :)

Me and My dad are going to repaint my car with White racing stripes down the middle

We went to get a price on everything we would need to repaint it and it was only 231.00 for everything we needed to repaint the car.

My friend painted his 65 C10 in his back yard. It's really hard. Gotta keep the gun moving and a straight angle. Worst part is when you get a run. If it looks like orange skin when you get it dry, you did it right.

Good luck.

just to let you know, good stripes arent equal distance apart throughout the car.

Hey I thought instead of stripes, and it would be rather easy to do for an amatuer painter to do, What about like a checkered flag paint job... Like start under kneath the Horse on the bumper, and then over on top of the hood in the center of the hood, and onto the roof of the car and so forth if one chose...

Just squares, shouldnt be to hard to do....?

Any body with photo shop skillz wanna try this, and post a pic here for ole brent to view, he is a very Un-VISUAL fella!

Those look painted, but they're actually vinyl.

it would end up just looking like a giant checker board on wheels, to look good the flag would have to be waving and have shadows and the like, wouldnt be easy at all
