Yeehaw! Head to where the good ol' boys live, like Pinellas Park or Pasco, though you probably already live there.

please tell me you have either a minimum of 8 cylinders -or- a giant snail force-feeding air into your motor, because otherwise i'm going to make fun of you.

Try one of those sign shops that do wraps on commercial vehicles. They have the skills and tools to apply graphics, although you will probably have to pay an extra charge since you wouldn't be buying the graphics from them.

You would probably get better help on the matter by talking to people on a forum dedicated to your particular make of car.

You got that wrong. Head to Pasco if you decided to name your truck or car something like "ChevyKiller" or "Black Mamba" or "GITTERDONE" and want that STUPID crap vinyl'd across your tint strip...or if you have a Calvin and Hobbes sticker somewhere on it with Calvin peeing on a Ford, Chevy or Dodge emblem and want some kind of custom work done.
Racing stripes are actually making a comeback on the retro style cars, like the new Camaro/Mustang or the Challenger. It looks nice on those cars if done tastefully.
But if the Mustang is a V6 or the car is a 4-banger, keep the stripes OFF. I saw a Jaguar the other day with racing stripes. The Jag XJ series... please.
Back on topic, like the other poster said, look for custom shops or places that do window tinting/ vinyl overlays. Funny thing is there are a couple of those shops in Pasco, so maybe you will need to head up here anyhow. Can't think of the names of them right off, but one is on US 19 just north of Main St., and there is a tint place called National on Ridge Rd. that may do vinyls also...they do great tint work.
