tailgate wrap

Printed CMY (51 passes) I did a few tests and this Mactac B-Free prints excellent. Not sure if you will be able to tell but there are some stripes showing where it did not over lap correctly. I still need to fine tune it but I love to install this stuff.

I like it, the wood fill looks good, where'd ya get it...

Corel? Photoshop? both? Screen freq.?

I like the thought of keeping the "chevy" brand...that is printed right?

The Chevrolet started across the top but that goofy tailgate latch stopped it from happening. The wood is from a online high res source...I forget the location. The chrome was an Impact filter in photoshop. It's tough to know when to draw the line on effects. I am happy with it (although I do not like the streaks) but it's a great 10 footer. It's got a cowboy kind of feel to it. (which is not me). It was nice to do something for "myself" for a change. My next project is a home-made enclosed trailer. The before/after pictures should be great.
