I saw that the other day. While I would never do that myself, there is something intriguing about it I've been trying to jog my memory if I remember ever saw that when it was first done....... nothing.

If you want to do this, save the picture to your hard drive and upload it to the Samba Gallery. Car sold...picture disappears...thread useless. Confused

Looks like house paint. Barf. I'd have no problem with it if they did it right.

Are you kidding? I can't even imagine the amount of masking that would be involved? Shocked
For a pro, using quality automotive materials, this would probably be a $15-25K paint job, and take 2 years. Laughing
