    ok, its time to paint my truck. im just gonna clean her up and primer her white. then when i scratch it all up i can just throw on another coat of primer. so heres the question: my buddy is a REALLY good artist and wants to practice doing flames on vehicals before he does his. so, would it look stupid if i had a primer white, beat up, body damaged, lifted truck with flames on the front? and if not, what if i let him go crazy and make a skull and crossed wrenches on the hood? let me know.

    The only way you'll know is if you let him do it, you can always primer back over it. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    My Buddy is a comercial artist and runs the art department for the Boys and Girls club of america. He wrote and codirected the commercial with Denzel Washington in it. I been trying to talk him into laying some flames on my truck for years /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif Go for it. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    You can always sand it off and paint over it.

    I say go for it. If I was closer to you I would let him practice on my truck /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif. It's allready completely covered in flat black spray paint. I've been thinking about putting some flames on it, or getting some Chevy orange and doint a Camo scheme with it. I haven't made my mind up yet but when it's done it will defenitely be a one of a kind. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Primer bad /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif. Spend the few extra bucks and get something that cover the primer. Primer loves to soak up moisture like a sponge. I know you don't want to have to worry about getting scratches but I wouldn't want the rust that it will make. They do make good flat paints though. So its no biggie. Flames are cool though.
