Voted Yay, with the understanding a time frame is specified and the vehicle be restored to pre decal condition after the time frame is completed.

Averages to around $33 a month, I'd also want to pre-approve the design before final commit.

Recently read a story about a graphic shop that was trying to drum up business by applying a graphic to a truck tailgate. Unfortunately it was of a woman that was tied up in the truck bed. Didn't go over too well.

The paint scheme looks good. So, it comes down to how big the lettering will be and where he's putting it. I wouldn't do it if the total design was tacky. Also, need to consider whether or not it will cause uneven paint fade. $200 for 6 months is a decent deal without having to do any real work except drive the car. I conditionally vote "yay."

Well.... no lettering or anything on the car just leave the car outside of the shop seeing the color and kit pulls enough attention, people stop by and ask already.

If there's no lettering or advertisement on the car, yes. You're basically getting paid to do the exact thing that others will pay for. It looks fantastic on the Zonda in the picture and I think it will look very good on the Sol's lines as well.

The caveat about uneven paint fade is definitely something to consider. If you're going to be leaving it in the direct sun in front of his shop for a lot of the time, then that could become a problem.

Yes, although the graphic of the lady tied up drew attention, it did promote attention-grabbing for customers, and quite a bit of complaints and a news special! :lol: At first when I heard of the story I was like "wow, how could you not tell??" and then when I actually saw a picture of it I was like.. "okay, so where's the picture?" it was very nice, here's a picture:




Also, the paint job (the colors and the format) of your picture (OP's picture) is very nice and similar to my ideal paint job so I approve. Voted YAY!
