if you have a better paint scheme copy this blank flie and paint it up in paint. should be able to use the paint bucket to fill in the rays and sun. done in autocad then saved as jpeg then opend in paint.

The sun will be done to scale. When I go to paint it. This was just a quick photoshop hack job. The hardest part is finding a used hood. Can get new ones online but want something cheaper you know lol

Junk yards are the best spot to look. Someone who go rear-ended would be a perfect hood.
i have called every junk yard around and they ether dont have any scions or the xb they have does not have a hood of worth wile.


Why paint it do a vinyl
i feel like it would start to tear or rip off after a wile. if i paint it i will lay down many coats of a harding clear coat.

It is your car and you can put whatever you want on it. But just be aware that the "Rising Sun" flag may be considered offensive to some people as it was the flag Japan used during WWII. Kind of like a swastika, brings up all kind of bad images.

kinda true. but the rising sun is now a "logo" of sorts and sold on a **** of stuff to shirts shoes whatever so i think its kibnda mainstream now.

you should just get it vinyled on there dude. wicked easy to apply and remove.

when you gonna do it?

i thought about that. just dont want it to peel or tear off when it gets hit by rocks. if i paint it. there will be lots a clear coat. but i am getteing quotes on getting it wraped. if the price is right then i might do it

I would consider vinyl as well. by the time it starts to peel you can figure out if you want to go all in and paint the logo. If you're like me, you might find yourself ready for a new design in a year~ish when it starts to peel and you'll have that option.
