I know some of you won't like stripes but it is my style. I just did the hood to see if I like it and will do the rest of the car soon. I have to take off the rear wiper and fill the hole first. Also painted the engine cover with Fusion Prism paint. Found this at Joanne's fabrics.

congrats! nice job. I'd be all over stripes - if my car wasn't tanning in the AZ sun all of the time. I'd do 'em in vinyl incase I wanted to nuke 'em, but I'm sure my paint would be darker where the stripes used to be. basically, I can't commit.

I think we have a first! Joanne's Fabrics as a mod source. okay, maybe someone has gotten fabric or spray adhesive there, but that's for the interior. but for under the hood?

nice job.

Thanks everyone. It must be a girl thing, I go in all these stores looking for stupid paint other than blue or red and think Joannes has paint I'll try there and wha-la!! The paint is a clear and looks best on dark colors. Anyway, my car bakes in the Florida sun so fading may happen but I like them and may paint them on later. Well now I have to do the rest of my stripes, OH-Boy what fun.

I like them! You should go all the way though...


And the back end too...


I too have purchased some stuff at Joanne's for the Box. They have some cool paints and fabrics. I'll be doing the headliner of my S-10 with Hawaiian material from there.

Gotta love the sparkles! I, too, am a big fan of glitter, rhinestones and sparkly things...look at my interior and just ask my Norcal peeps...(Pix to come soon) and the same goes for my engine cover...glitter and rhinestones!

Keep up the good work! And I use Michael's Craft Store, they are my "sponsor"....LOL!!

I agree with Padanky, the sparkly pink looks good with the TCM. I've been thinking about putting silver stripes on my BSP, can I ask you & Taz how wide are the stripes & how big is the gap between them? Looks like yours are slighty wider than Taz's, I can't decide which ones I'd like to put on my ride because they're both cool.
