I just repainted my 2006's front bumper. While my grille is nice and unique, I felt the truck could use a bit more "custom" up front.

You've probably seen this done in Sharpie Marker, on a Lamborghini Gallardo. This however, is done in nice black enamel, and won't immediately fade and look crummy.


Citing various influences on my psyche,


I just randomly drew stuff in.


Once I'd got it all...


filled in, I went over it with


a nice thick coat of clear enamel to protect it.


The finished Art Bumper. In a few weeks, I'll wet-sand it, apply another coat of clear, and polish it out to a high shine.

Looks great. I like the way you used the pic to cover your license plate. :)
Are your flames still there? Hard to tell from the one pic of the hood.

I do like the grill. The artwork is unique. I wish I had some of your talent in the paint department.

I used to have a 2007 mitsu Eclipse and I did the dash similar to that. It was done with metallic silver sharpie and ALOT of time.

I've considered doing this to a few pieces on my truck I just haven't completely convinced myself.

Great job on your bumper though! Very Unique!

That does look good, so does your dash Cheez. I'm with STB in my lack of ability to even draw stick figures, so your ability really impresses
