Lightbulb Considering stripes on your car LOOK HERE

I posted this a while back and thought it might be helpful for those that would like stripes or other paintwork on there 2010, but don't know if they would like it, want to try different looks, or just would like different stripes for different occasions.

The paint comes out as a flat metalic looking finish. I ended up not really liking the look on the car. Here are the results.

I think this stuff is used to maybe (guessing) try out a design or idea on your car without actually damaging the finish? Other than that, you'd better not live in an area where it rains much, say like, San Antonio during the last few years..

It's a nice product. It's Car Art paint, and it's made by Duplicolor. Be sure to follow the instructions. Like brandonppr stated, it can be used to test out ideas one might have. You can spray on the design you like and see if it works for you. If it doesn't, just wash it off and re-wax you ride. Cheaper than buying vinyl over and over, and you get a better look than mocking it up with masking tape. I know Checker/O'Reilly Auto Parts used to carry it. Just a thought.

This is a temporary paint. Not meant to be kept on.
