Lettering/signs/pictures on truck

This is what i ended up doing on my truck. Saw it done on TRUCKS on SPIKE TV a few months ago. Lettered it, then dusted it good with primer and sanded on the lettered area. Gave it a nice weathered look.

There was a good article in one of the Hot Rod Mags in the last year with good technique suggestions.

Re: Lettering/signs/pictures on truck

Is there a computer design cut stencil that can be stuck to the doors, and then I could spray my color/s of choice? I would then take scotch brite pads and age it. Or do I need to hire someone to paint it for me? I have a 65 stepper that is patina and I want door art. The truck is flat red and I want flat white lettering.

Yeah, you can do it that way. The paper stencils leave a hard edge after you remove them, and the letters won't look "old". One way to lessen it is to use a vinyl mask instead of a stencil, brush the paint instead of spray, and add a lot of thinner to the paint so it goes on light and streaky. What I mean by "streaky" is that a lot of the underlying red paint shows through the brush-painted flat white. Don't go too heavy on the white, just enough to show the lettering. Peel the mask and scotchbrite the area. Use a worn-down green pad and water and work it slow. Make it look natural.

Check out Hotrod 49's build thread. He did a shop logo on his patina'd paint and it turned out awesome. He's a pinstriper by trade, and very good at what he does.

Re: Lettering/signs/pictures on truck

I have had an idea for a while. I have a friend that does vinyl lettering. I think you could peel out the letters to make a stencil. Another words toss the part you would normally use. Then just stick it to the door as a stencil. Then just paint it with a spray can. Now in my head it should work great...in real life not so sure.
