    Primer Flames?

    Since the front half of my truck is in primer already, with overspray on the doors (previous owner), I'm thinking about doing a primer flame job on it until I can afford a real paint job. What do you all think?

    everything is legal now-a-days

    do you have access to a large printer?

    The tape you use to define the edge is very important, I like the blue vinyl pinstriping tape. Good tape is one of the few things I think is worth the money because it needs to pull off clean and not break. 3M

    Thanks, that looks pretty good. How did you go about taping/masking it off?

    Limo truck has scallops the turn into lightning bolts with a color fade.

    Pick out something with a radius you like, keep the top edge parallel, then taper the bottom edge back to the start of the next radius.

    Hoods can get trickier.

    measure. I just eyeballed mine, and if you look through the pics on my page, they arent off from side to side. But i used my door handle and door as reference and the body line. But id suggest measuring

    ive always loved scallops on old hotrods, and remember seeing yours, i love how yours is two tone styled with the back half the color. Pretty sure one day this will be my final paint job. This was my third rattle can job and i cant bring myself to change it lol
