If you do more than a one color paint scheme, be careful cutting the design because the knife cuts can sometimes create a weak point and crack along them..

painted and cut i can see what you're talking about here. the entire front end from the bottom of the windshield forward is just a huge flex point. i'm not even sure "reinforcing" this spot is gunna help much in the long run.
i guess we shall see...
