Decal ideas....

My sister does vinyl graphics, and I'm gonna get her to do some decal for my TJ. Thing is, I'm havin some difficulty coming up with ideas. I want somethin for the sides of my hood, and area in front of my doors. Can anyone help me come up with somethin really cool and unusual?

I was thinking a lil more "dark".....I have TONS of skull tattoos, and was thinking about a big flat black skull on the hood, and maybe somethin written on the sides of the hood. What should the words say?

I wonder how hard it'd be to make my own hood blackout.....like on the raised portion of the hood.

How about a shadow skull that's a reflective color match. That way its subtle until direct light hits it.

What about a blackout with a semi gloss black skull just enough gloss to expose the skull. I would make sure its a more personalized skull vs everything else.

i allready blacked out my raised portion. i had a few beers to take the edge off. i used painters tape around the edge and newspaper as a drop everywhere else, to include the rest of the hood, windshield. i used two good coats of primer and let it dry. then i choose a good automotive grade flat black. let it dry and recoat. after it dried i pulled the paper and tape. i loved it. wife was so mad.

The swingarm on my Harley was chrome, and I painted it with some epoxy spraypaint. It is a gloss black rather than satin (not sure what way you are looking to go) and still looks great after 7-years of heavy riding. I think the paint is marketed more for appliance touch-ups, and costs more per can, but I was, and am, very happy with the results I got from it.
