Thanks everyone.

Peter, I went round and round with the stripe. I made paper patterns and tried to cut it from that freehand with some cheap vinyl. The results were not acceptable. Went to a graphics shop and was quoted $2000. Came home and debated putting the rainbows back on. Then while surfing one night I found an add for knifeless tape. It is a thin tape you put down where you want the stripe to be. The tape has a very thin filament embedded inside. You pull this and it cuts the vinyl perfect. I did alot of stressing over nothing. That stuff is amazing.

Nice job.

Esp. like the new dash, looks very current.



They did look like rainbows, wasn't it supposed to depict "spray" from a ski ? Not my fav look either way.

That is what I thought would be the answer. I saw that used years ago on Pimp My Ride.
