Are you looking to have hand painted striping, or stickers. If you are undecided, as someone who does it by hand with paint, I recommend paint.
Applied stickers are less labor intensive and may be cheaper, and I have to admit, look good from distance. But skillfully applied paint gives you the freedom to have any design you want within the artists skill level. It's kind of a dying art, but, can really set off your vehicle if done tastefully.
I think both are good in their own environments. I have seen a lot of metallic tapes that look great too. I have seen paint and computerized tape that together look wild on all kinds of vehicles (Bikes, Boats, drag racers, stock cars, vans, passenger cars and commercial vehicles too)... I have seen some awesome tapes on cars with graphics... especially flame work in tape, those can really be wild!!
However, for my SSR if I were to have it done, I would probably use only paint. I like the real pinstripe results up close vs. tape up close. :seeya
Oh, I want paint. We used to have a guy here in town who was the local signpainter. He did killer pinstripes by hand with just a brush. He did my dad's pickup about ten years ago. When my dad stopped and inquired, he whipped out a brush and put a couple strokes on right then just to show how his ideas would look. Wiped it out and redid it on the appointed day.
He sold the shop and retired. Wish I could find someone like him.
With talk about people putting away their SSR for the winter I was wondering if anyone had any plans for updates or changes over the winter? I am going to do something with the dash face and see how it comes out. I want to take the original and sand it smooth along with the top may either do...
This idea is on another forum that I visit, and I think it is a great idea!

It's early here, so I haven't done anything to mine yet, but a top to bottom cleaning is needed on my R. I hope to get to that today. ;)
I'm in that group of people that thinks "If it ain't broken, DON'T FIX IT!" I've been around computers, the internet, forums of all types, etc. since the late 80's so, I've seen a lot of ways of doing the same job through the years. "User Friendly" GUI's (graphical user interface) are my...
