    I mentioned the vision to my 'artistic director' (the wife) last night and she was very firm in the view that my vision is essentially fucked....lol....  She wants them chrome - so that might just be the excuse I need to invest in a chroming kit.

    The preview in GIMP looked like shit too, so I may have to adjust the plan.  I still like the concept of painting, but maybe mexican Blanket is too far out there!

    I reckon you would have trouble with loss of adhesion of the underlying paint when removing masking tape.

    They say that about ALL great visionaries - but ahh yeah, while I like your idea, I have a preference for chrome too  :)

    So - after careful consideration and negotiation with the Artistic Dept. we have agreed that Black pipes with a pattern or pin stripping in a metallic gold paint or leaf is the way to go.
    She had a good argument that the pipes should not try and out-do the main paint job, but rather support the overall styling.

    Call me a cynic, but that's not gonna hold up to heat of an exhaust
