Theres been a lot of talk of patterns on here lately so Ive been messin around with it too. I started messin with this hilux, but I am not convinced if I should finish this up or start over. Its the first time I have tried the Black Gold HOK and I messed up in a few spots cause the way they tell you to thin the paint makes it REAL thin, so it took a little getting used to. The final color will be Oriental blue. Let me know what you think.

Thanks for the feedback. Yeah I think the blue may have killed it but...fuck it its on there now. I decided to finish it up anyway.
Poppa for the fine lines I used blue painters tape. I laid out a piece on a smooth surface then with a straight edge cut out like 10 fine strips. It worked out pretty well for the fine lines. Then I used the 3m fineline tape for the stripe up the middle and sides. Heres a few pics. It still needs clear.
