I do not know much, and I'm not a big fan of low riders, but the challenge was whether I was able to create a credible model. I chose a 66 Olds because I was here in my closet, and I created this graphic in photoshop. then it was printed on transparent paper with a color copier. the decal has been placed on a pearly pink paint and then varnished. 4 small wheels comes from Pegasus.

Very nice looking build .  I'm not a fan either ,  but your decal is very impressive !   A decal that large is difficult to apply without wrinkles and air bubbles .  What brand of paper did you use ?

Not a very low lowrider, but a really cool looking graphics job! Color combination looks great too!

I like it! B)

That is pretty neat. Nice job.  Good color choices too for this particular build and style.

 

Wheels work very well with this too.

 

Nice all the way around. You have the Complete Picture going on this build.
