I'm painting my truck. so far i painted it a storm gray color. i dont like it plan and want to do scallops along the side and hood in black with a silver stripe to outline it.

but i was thinking painting the inside with lace, like this

but i dont know how to do it. I've look around and got some pictures but no real directions. have any of you guys done it before or know how to do it? all the help the better.

im i used to work in a body shop but never did that but i would assume you lay down the color you want the lace and then put lace on top of it and secure it somehow, then paint over that with the second color you want then throw lots and lots of clear on it when you spray it should ALMOST run if your using rattlecans it make it harder it is a talent gained from lots of mistakes lol

I thought the exact same thing. Why the hell would you put lace on a truck?

The Dodge bed looks good, it will go nice with lace.

OMFG......... I'm a girl and even I would never think of painting lace on my rig. EWWWWWWWWWWW! And I agree with the rest of them about a freakin DODGE on a FORD.

i like how the body lines match. almost looks factory.... maybe it would look better with flowers instead of lace. lol

That is pretty gay, not to mention the lace. I've seen something similar in a display book at the local Keystone. It's actually a very thin film they use. The snakeskin design in the book I saw might actually look pretty good for a custom job.

well i tried the lace thing on a plan piece of metal and it didn't look to good. kinda was gay looking. and that bed was on it when i got it, i have a flat bed that i just have to get the time to put it on. i will be doing the scallops, i just don't know what color they'll be. i want something hotrod like but i don't like the red with white.

Or do the "marble" look with wet paint & then putting saran wrap over it...Just look it up on google...Its easy to do but I cant explain it good enuff...

"snake skin" just get some fishnet stockings ( if you were thinking of lace you probably have sone in your closet)....Lay down your base coat then when thats dry lay out your stockings & tape in place when you get the right "scale" look & then paint your skin...
