You guys didn't expect someone like me to take an old station wagon rebuild it , transplant a turbo engine into it, and then leave it alone did you?

 

Next part of my plan is to turn it into an art car. Was not quite ready to start this project yet but I have had an itch to see what it would look like so talked my wife into doing the tailgate for now.

I have a few more artist that will contribute to this and will not be stopping until the whole car is completely covered.

I been using google to see what others have done and have got some really cool ideas , it just takes a lot of time to do.

Not for me.  Looks like something out of the Hippie Craze.  The wife's ability is top notch though.

That’s neat, weird, but neat. She has a great talent. What kind of marker or what ever is it you use so it stays on and does not wash off. Also, if you made a mistake , do you have time to fix it before it dries.

I love it!  Hippie Craze, all of our best music we have came from the hippie craze.

All of the GOOD music came long before the Hippie Crazy.  Most Hippies were to high to know what music really was.

Not my style but to each his own. Kinda like the sticker bombing stuff.

Artistry is top notch!

Nope once it goes on it goes on, I have tried to remove a line as a test to see what happens and its a no go. I have tried many chemicals, only thing that came close was paint thinner and it just smeared it. 

 

Just a standard sharpie marker and I will be clear coating it once its complete.

Just took some sharpie writing of a spritz bottle with acetone and it came right off clean as new.

When I worked at the CRT factory we used methanol to remove sharpie from the tubes.

 

She is a very good artist.

Wow I like it, it's nice to see something different in this bland world.

I never would of though sharpy would bond that well, shows what I know.

There is a lot of talent there, keep it up, can't wait to see what it looks like when you are finished!

That's the Internet for you; you show them something and everyone jumps in to tell you what they think. My dear Mother, when I proudly showed her something I made in my wood shop, would say; "Well, that's very nice, but, don't make me one!"
