    Anyone pay a bodyshop to paint stripes on their car? What was the cost?

    OEM vinyl is crazy expensive. Might as well have them painted on. I'm more of a purist. However the car came stock is how I'd keep it.

    Big worm graphics makes quality vinyl stripes that doesn't break the bank

    I emailed Big Worm trying to get info on a custom vinyl colors - pretty much told me what he has is it, but I could do the research on my own.

    The reason I am asking the question is because I like the red wheels on a white car but it wouldn't go with my stock blue stripes

    Where in SoCal? I'm in San Diego (East Chula Vista area). 350R Heritage Edition on order with a build date in late May. Very interested in having the stripes painted.

    Have one place I may check in with here in San Diego, but I'd be interested in your guy as well if you have been happy with them. Were yours painted and then cleared over so there is no edge?

    Good deal. Interested in your guys info for once all the craziness passes and hopefully the car actually gets built in May this time. Original build week was last week. I want to get the stripes painted before I move on to the ppf and ceramic.
