We use sharpy markers on plant tags and it doesn't last long because it will fade,

We started using "Industrial" sharpies for the plant tags and have never had trouble wit them fading again.

 

but you shouldn't have any issues once it's clear coated.

A friend of mine used to work at a shop as a semi mechanic, he said once in a while some lady would come in and paint the pin stripes and other designs on the trucks. I guess she would just free hand draw it with a pencil and then go back through with paint and just follow the lines. He said she was incredible to watch, both sides of the cab looked the same and non of it was measured or done from patterns. He said she could also do pin stripes just by walking with her brush against the semi, he said they were always perfectly straight.

exactly your wife is a talented artist but it's still a volvo

 

I never got why people always hate Volvo's, they are just a vehicle like everything else, no difference from fixing up a Volvo from some muscle car, at the end of the day they are still just cars. Except classic VW's, they are much more :poke:

Only difference I have noticed is 4 more cylinders and a very expensive fuel bill. 

 

Right now I am pushing about 225-240 hp and this lil wagon is a blast. I also get 28 mpg's on the highway. 

 

Here is something for you muscle car guys.

He did more engine mods to his thats why he is at 275hp , I got another engine I am building that will be able to handle 800 hp and I am mating that to a Nissian 370Z cd009 6 speed manual transmission that can handle up to 1000 hp.... I won't be making the 800 , I will leave it around 300 hp , but will be a bullet proof and bullet proof gets.

She wanted to sell her wagon and  build her one like mine then we found her a rare classic edition numbers 1319/1600

I never got why people always hate Volvo's . . .

Scandinavians have a different approach to car design; Volvos and Saabs, though not as much as they used to be.

 

 

 

 

 

Yes, She does metal work too. 

Ummmh . . .          does she have any sisters?

 

(Can we still say that now days?)
