    It's actually a do it your self job... You sinply buy the two colors you want... need to be enamel's... You spray the truck/body panel the first or base color, and let it dry for one hour, then spray your top color over this, before it dries lay painters visquine (sp) on the WET paint, take a air gun and lightly spray the plastic to stick it to the wet paint, then peel it off... It looks killer in person... I'm gonna try to do mine this summer... with blue and radar blue.... So it's just the cost of the paint... and a gun... i figured about 450 with a cheap paint gun...

    I think the purple yota looks kinda gay. Looks like it's got a flower pattern on the hood. With different colors, it would probably look a lot better.I hope it's a chicks rig, not guys.

    That yota can go anywhere.. over 10,000 invested... they did it all themselves... there in moab right now... they've been doin it for over 20 years... And they just did that paint scheme on the front with a flame look to it... I think it looks gnarly... Pf course I like wild things... Shows freedom and it's something new...

    We've done this to some of the cars that my brother put hydralics on. It is usually referred to as "Bowling Ball" and is pretty easey to do. Some painty supply houses even sell kits to do it.

    Ya, it looks like it's prolly pretty cool if it were different colors. That green looks like a bird puked all over it or something.

    Yeah, it would look cool in different colors.

    I'll agree its a cool effect. But a different set of colors would look much better IMHO.
