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.

sounds cool, but wouldn't it fade with time?

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

have a tattoo artist or something do it. give em' an idea and they'll draw it up. but that is a pretty sweet concept. of course they'd have to clear coat it afterwards so it would stick and stay through all the elements longer.

According to WVG5 (Now "WVSpeed6"), trying to clearcoat sharpie causes it to smear/run.

So if you do "Sharpie" art, you'll have to do it with something other than sharpie that can withstand clear coating.

I wonder how clear protective vinyl film would work, Probably only look good for a little while tho and then it will start to yellow.

I would imagine that something from 3M should be made well enough to resist yellowing.
