I'm about to do the paint on my project poorboy chevy, and would like to get the graphics as close to the 1:1 as I can. The tricky part is theres a graphic of a checkered flag on the rear fenders that I really dont want to try and paint. So, I was thinking I should look into whether its posable and worth getting someone to make up a vinyl graphic from a pic of the 1:1. Anyone ever have this done before? I'm geussin it shouldnt be hard to find a vinyl graphics shop to do something like this?

Checkered flag painting is actually not that hard. Especially if it's wavy... Cover the area with vinyl/masking tape/whatever your preference; Using an x-acto, cut intersecting lines (top to bottom, front to back); Now, simply remove every other square and paint.. Good luck.

I thought about doing that, but theres a bit of shading as well as black outling throughout the graphics. I dont really wanna go out and buy a air brush just for this one.

haha, not gonna lie, I may fight it for a while, but sooner or later I'm gonna cave and buy an air brush. I'm tryin to finish this project on a budget though, so I'm gonna hold of on the airbrush for now....gotta check my lotto tickets...
