Crayon




Jk it's hand painted I think you have to see it in person to really appreciate it.
We had a trial and error one but none of us liked it

The talented ones stripe and do graphics with brushes and paint not vinyl cut by a plotter!

You should have done it vinyl

Just in case you get tired of it.

Dude has like 30 years of experience and just does that all over the country. I guess he's the best. He didn't use rulers tape measure nothing.
I measured it out when I got home and it's an exact copy side to side in size and follows the same direction. I'm really impressed with his skill
If I really wanted to it can still be removed and really easily too, but I won't.
He also left a few nice touches in the interior and those fine details are some of the best parts on the car.

AJ took some shots of the interior so I'd rather wait for more shots to come up and him show you the interior.

Anything I post up wont look too good as my photo taking skills are very poor and everything comes out looking like ass.

Then again, we aren't exactly done tuning the interior yet

I'm positive the pinstripe can be easily removed with a very light wet sanding.

Legit painters that can do pinstriping are AMAZING - most of them probably could have been surgeons. Very cool, unique choice!

Not a fan of the color scheme reminds me of a green M&M but I respect the money spent and modifications to it.. good job!

This is definitely the best new "Green" car I have seen.

If all green cars were like this one I could definitely join the green movement!
