I just did this lettering on a restored Belvedere drag race car, driven by Don Grotheer. What a cool job! A lot more info and pictures can be seen at this site:
I have a client in West Knoxville who sells car audio systems, remote starters, and stuff like that. I painted both of these windows; having been warned about black on glass by other painters. I’ve done it a few times in 30 years, never had a problem; plus, the window is under a large overhang, and the sun doesn’t hit it much. The problem was that the window had an existing BB hole in it. When the sun hit the window, a very irregular crack came across the glass, starting at the hole. The window was replaced, and I decided to put the painting on fluted plastic, called coroplast.The reason being that the flutes will act as insulation to keep the black away from the glass. I used two sided tape carefully and sparingly applied to hold it on the glass. I installed it in cold weather, and from what I know about these things, if it holds in cold weather, it will hold in warm weather.
This isn’t a recent picture, but it’s so neat that I have to post it. It belongs to a business in Oak Ridge TN. I didn’t do the work, it pulled into the parking lot where I was working. The ears are hinged and fold back.
The picture below is for the new RR depot near Cumberland Ave. I painted the logo first, then the floor grey afterwards.
I was asked to paint an old looking American flag on a barn. Here’s a link to a more descriptive page.

Finally! I finished making a how to page for this job. The motorcycle has been completed for awhile, but I put all new posts here on hold till this was finished. You can see the page here:

This was a rush job for an ad agency called Saatchi and Saatchi. Man, what it’s like dealing with someone in the know. The files they send are spot on, and the communications are staccato rapid fire.
Was contacted about lettering the boom on this crane. The front tires are about 6 feet tall.
Got a request to put old looking lettering on a Yellow 1972 Chevy truck. We agreed upon a sketch, and this is what the finished job looks like. There’s a new method employed here; HERE’S a page describing it.
