Shark Mouth Paint Job

It was a good idea - in my head - until I googled around and actually found a photo of one.

I'll stick with plumber's white for now, although I'm not ruling out a full side mural one day of my dog baying at the moon.

Well sure, but that's on a Chevy.

Re: Shark Mouth Paint Job

You could do a better job than that. Maybe even include a curve or two.

I think teeth on just the grille would be fine.

Re: Shark Mouth Paint Job

I saw a stealth van here in San Diego a few months ago that had a giant grimacing skull painted on the back where the rear windows were the eye sockets and a fake (I hope) gun turret mounted on the roof. That makes you pause before performing any type of lane change.

I don't think it's the idea that was the problem with that van...

If you're going to do it, go all the way.

Re: Shark Mouth Paint Job

Good Lord!

Jeremiah, you have inspired me.

The only things stopping me now are:

1. Finding a good paint guy, but I would think there'd be somebody in the New York area who does good work.

2. Wondering whether or not it would make me more of a cop magnet than the van already is.

Wow!

The two-tone mouth and the eyes help a lot.

What did P40's carry for armament, 50 cals? Like, 3 in each wing?
