The sign company that makes a vinyl logo can mask the reverse to make a mask. The sign company essentially uses a CNC X-Acto to cut them. The process is easy and cheap.

A really nice wet paint job with multiple colors is a huge amount of work.
I was thinking if I had custom graphics made I'd talk to Gus Salmon. He produces water slide decals. I'm sure the process for applying them would be the same as Doug indicated.

Well, if I'm going to go for a ride today, it better be now. Class in < two hours.

Another option would be to use a regexp search for your name. I’d show an example, but I’m too lazy. Besides, its easier to search through stackoverflow for an answer.

What springs to my mind is a psuedo programming motivational statement, like this:

if not tired
go ("ride more")

I'm not sure that's robust enough. Might want something like:

if (tired(legs)) shut_up(legs);

I like it too !

We all have our preferences, but i would go with a much less elaborate lugset -- more in keeping with a stylized and modernized GT Edge than a Hetchins -- but there are obviously more ways to skin a cat

I would be more than happy to lend my skills. I did this sweet paint job myself on my wife’s hot rod. Many people have asked if it was Foose or Ring Bros, but noooooo…..I have a knack with krylon. Next up I’m saving up for chrome spray paint for the rims.

Lol polite save.

funny thing is, that in the 1980’s (while in high school) I did help a kid spray bomb his car at 2 am in the morning. He was a thinker and prepared, had a whole selection of spray paint on hand in case he had a poor run in with LEO. Yeah, my life choices weren’t quite on par when I was 16, fortunately I made adjustments.

good luck with your project!

Sorry, the censors got you martl. Any chance you can whisper the URL into my email ear (skip.montanaro@gmail.com)?
