Thanks WeedWacker. That color is a pearl copper over white bc, and black shading around the edges, and the Align lettering.
I always try to go for things you don't see often.

Thanks. Yes I did the airbrushing. Always trying to think outside of the box.
PM me, and let me know what idea you have, and I can give you dome pricing.

Thanks
Terry

your gonna dig it. i haven't bought fineline tape in 10 years, cut it out of vinyl, any width, to a point, rounded edges, whatever. the trick is finding one that deals with your solvents without loosing it's adhesive

Not sure if the "Align" graffiti was a good ideal or not. Looking for input on whether to keep it, or lose it. I will appreciate all feedback. Thanks

Thanks MK, I was thinking the same, but sometimes it looks good to me, and others I don't like it. Plus I figure, see how others feel before bothering to redo it. Thanks for the input.
