Default Paint Work! Stripes, wheel spokes, and dash.

So I decided to paint stripes on my car. I had Ernie Sigala do the work as I always do. I Ended up going dual 11" stripes with a 1.5" gap. I wanted to be a little different; norm is either a 10" or a 12" stripe with either a 1" or 2" gap. The quality is great. There is no raise in the paint gliding your hand over the stripe. All paint is under the clearcoat. It looks and feels like it was shipped from Ford this way. Not to mention a killer price.

As some know, I powder coated my wheels a few weeks back in a matte black. I wanted my wheels to pop a little more with the addition of the stripes. Unfortunately, I choose to skimp with my budget a little bit. Instead of adding powdercoat, I decided on a high quality, high temp resistant paint that i'm hoping will last a few years. Ernie choose a matte red to go along with matte black.

As with the wheels, the same high temperature resistant paint was used on the break calipers. As above, i'm hoping to get a few years out of it.

To my surprise Ernie showed up with a very custom dash for me. I ran by the idea of painting my dash the same color as the stripes. When I received the car, I was blown away with his end result. He actually measured and scaled down 6x the exact stripe measurements on the car. The pictures do not do it justice. It is simply breathe taking!

Much appreciation to Ernie. As always, he was very professional, and affordable. He has done some great work for me over the years.

Prices:
Stripes: $650
Wheels: $200
Calipers: $250
Dash: Free homie hookup!

Nice! He did an excellent job! That dash work is bad ***! Whoa, very unique. I think you just gave me an idea for the future to match my planned white stripes and my Shelby seats. Where in Cali are you?

Taking a guess at it I would say the wheels are going to bring down the vote from looks great, to looks ok. But thats just a guess.

I actually really like how the wheels and calipers came out. The pictures don't really do it justice. Looks much better in person. But yeah. The stripes and dash are on another level.
