Default Your opinion.

If it every warms up for a day or weekend, I am thinking about trying to do some racing stripes or graphics on my truck. I have a few ideas on both, but seeing as I am not a professional painter, I was thinking of having a stencil made from some stuff I had done on PS, then trying to use plastidip for the painting or stencil work. Anyone tried this before or have any ideas? The image is crappy as I can't get to deviant art from my work computer, but will give you an idea. Any thought or comments are welcomed.

I'm not sure how well it will work on a fine-line graphic. But you should be good with racing stripes. Just remember thicker, wetter coats, and another thick coat right when you pull the tape off.

Butttttt depending how how the lines are on the graphics, remember the same thing, thick coats and a more wet coat before you peel.

Thanks for the heads up on the coating. I was thinking of getting a can of the dip for the fine line details. Maybe I can brush it on and use a razor to cut any excess off.

That graphic is pretty badass looking but I agree the fine line detail is probably going to be tough to get perfect. I am very interested to see how that turns out though. My vote is go for it.
