Just got my stripes painted.

For those looking to get stripes painted, here's an option.

I just got my stripes painted at Fisher's Paint and Body in Norman. I did have to take it back to get some swirls buffed out, but in their defense, they did have it while it was dark and rainy. (It took them less than 20 minutes to buff out the swirls). Other than taking it back once, I'm extremely pleased with their work.

Oh yeah, I guess when they wet buff/sand, it gets this whitish stuff EVERYWHERE. They got most of it, but I'm kind of particular. It took me about an hour to get all that "white" stuff cleaned from all the cracks and crevises.

It cost $906. It also cost me $30 to have a sign company make the stickers to get the lettering on the cowl. I had them put the letters on, then they painted GM's Carbon Metalic Black stripes. They then pulled the stickers off to let the RJT show through making the lettering.

There's probably a few things I'd do different if I had to do it again. If you want more info, feel free to PM me I'll be glad to give you my two cents.

Here's some pics.
