luigi,

The artist did nice work. I like the way your spare tire cover is outlined.

Thanks for the feedback

Donna / OC,

Thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback. The more I look at it the better I like it, too! The light brown and the deep burgundy are a very complementary combination on the Savanna body

Next task will be installing the mudflaps. But first I'm going to check with a buddy at a local body shop to get his opinion on color-matching and painting the black Toyota flaps.

Then I'm on to hunting down the Canadian version of the body side molding.

[quote="karrock"]It's not that I don't like the visual effect pinstriping provides... It's that I detest dealers charging $100-$200 for a $3 length of adhesive-backed vinyl. That and the way they get polishing wax wedged between the paint and the stripes.

Go to a body shop and ask who they use for pinstriping. Charges in my area are around $25-30 for both sides. Many of these people are mobile and will go right to your house. They just need a warm place for installation.

Around here, pinstriping on newer vehicles are rare.

Thanks - I'll pass the complement along to the artist. I can't manage a straight line with a ruler . When some friends saw his work they want to book him too!
