Talking New Suzuki paint for my old MF2

Here my latest paint job for my old MF2.

What do you guys think ?



As you can see, I was inspired by the Rockstar Makita Suzuki's.

It's a clear vinyl for inkjets. After you print, shoot the decals with a clear acrylic like this Krylon Glossy Clear. I found some at Walmart.

I reverse the image and apply it to the inside of the body before painting. Use some windex/decal solution when applying them to make sure you get all the air bubbles out and back it with white to keep the colors clean. You can cut blue tape out of the "hole" you cut the decal from to protect it while you paint the rest of the body and then shoot the white final base after pulling the blue tape off the decals.

You can also just apply them to the outside but the cars color bleeds through. They also make a white vinyl that's pretty damn durable and sticks better than people think. You gotta shoot it with white acrylic as well.

I was planning on doing a Monster Energy/Makita Suzuki body for my buddy's stampede so this is awesome inspiration for it. Nice work BTW.
