Well folks, I just finished it, and it looks cool.
There's a lot of black celicas with the action package running around in the world, and I wanted mine to look a little different from all the others out there. So, I've seen similar things like this on other cars, so, I thought I'd give it a whirl, seeing that I am also a commercial artist.
It was a pain, but it turned out great. Check the pics, I did chrome veilside-esque stripes with the TRD
The graphics were done with Rocker Chrome material, which is similar to doing graphics in vinyl, only it's made with mylar, which cannot conform to compound curves as easily, but for my purposes, it would work out perfectly:
Pardon the dust, I need to let the adhesive backing set-up for 24 hours before I can wash-wax the car, but when it's clean, it'll look nice.
I WILL NOT be offering kits (or my templates) for you guys; It's unique, and I don't want to see everybody and their mom with this sort of thing, but I will offer a how-to in the near future for those that want to add a chrome element to their graphics layout.
As I said, If you have curves all over the place, this may not work out too well for you, but if you have some simple, uni-directional curves, it's a nice option.
Enjoy the pics, I'll be sure to post better ones (as soon as the car is clean, and my other mods are done
