Take this for what it's worth, but you will notice a distinct lack of feedback since you started posting videos. Most forum readers do NOT want to take the time to watch them, myself among them. Give us some decent photos and a brief description and you will see a lot more interest in your work.

No it's flames. Crushed velvet seat covers.

Wow! Almost impossible to do in scale. White flocking & dry brush red, orange & yellow? You might actually be able to use the small scale to your advantage: perhaps the tri-colors would be recognizable enough as fire that the absence of flame patterns wouldn't really matter?

I couldn't get the pattern repeat exactly right, but maybe this will help. copy, print, cut it out and glue it down.

I've never done my own decals, but Wayne Stevens, Jr., - wayne1320, or is he 1320wayne does outstanding decals. He's building the Cobra drag racer in the WIPS. I don't know if he makes them for others though.

Yepper, I'd see if one of the guys on here would be willing to print a couple seat covers out for ya. I'd offer, but I don't have a working printer these days. But I'd bet someone would do it, especially if you sent them the decal film for their printer.

Oh, and cool project. Glad you switched to pics.
