    Nice!!! I used to buy stuff from back when i had my dsm (90 tsi awd). Good work!!
  5. How much would you charge to pinstripe a 20 ft boat? I know the material costs $15 at the most for 150ft of universal pin striping, so do I just charge an hourly rate on top of that? Please help Thanks

    I think it looks pretty good. I kinda agree with MacGrafix about jazzing it up. But sometimes less is more and it helps get your point across efficiently.

    Metallic 851/951 Wet app?

    I used Oracal 851 metallic wet about two weeks ago to do some boat graphics. Turned out great!! You can do a wet app with it no problem. What is the vinyl gonna go on?

    Hood Stripes for my car

    Thanks for the replies everyone! What I first did was took a good side profile pic of the front end of the car. I then imported the pic to inkscape and used the bezel tool to trace over where I wanted the stripe to be. After that I saved the file as an .eps file and opened it up in SignBlazer. I scaled it to life size and used the plotter with pen and drawing paper to see how it would fit on the car. There is a lot of good info from forum member "tlzimmerman" in the inkscape subforum on how to trace objects. I just kept tweaking the nodes and re-plotting the stripe on paper until I got it perfect. It took about 5 tries to get it right. It was a lot of work running up and down the stairs of my townhouse. The plotter is all the way on the upper level and the car was all the way on the ground level.

    Hood Stripes for my car

    I have been wanting to make some hood stripes for my car for quite some time now and I finally got a chance. It took me a while to get the curve right on the hood, but I was using drawing paper and the pen attachment on the plotter so no vinyl was wasted. It was a good learning experience. I used Oracal 751 Matte Black. It a 2007 Mazdaspeed 3 My inspiration was the Australian Mazda MPS Extreme: I still need to do the stripes on the rear side panels.
