Sharpie Paint Jobs

i dont know if anyone has seen any of this yet. but what alot of people are starting to do is drawing on what you want to paint with a sharpie. then using clear coat to go over it. im no bad ass artist like my friend who just did his whole bike but i decided to do it with my interior trim pieces today. ill try to get some pics on here. but for those who havent seen some of this work check out this site.

not if it was clearcoated afterwards.

i was reading around in the links in the OP and they guy that did the BMW said that when he first started washing his car, a residue came off the sharpie, but it didnt change the look. even thru claybars and wax it still held up for him

i wanna see what this would look like on a red car
