Oh, vinyl job great idea. And after sticking spray clear on top of that, will look awesome. It is much simpler. How about digital printing of flames and sticking on car.

Ok Guys,

My painting is almost done. Yet to apply clear. The masking tape of bad quality has left a lot of nasty glue. Need to remove that once the paint is dried. Small tochup is also required.

For the Graphics, I drawed and cut the flame graphic on pafer and then trasfered on to vinyl (being sunday I got a local vinyl, which is coming off even after 2 coats of clear .) Here are the pictures.
