Well, my girl just called me at work, and told me she picked up all the paint for her car. This weekend I'm airbrushing tribal lightning streaks down the sides of her car. I'm only gonna take them down to about half way on the door. That way I can save on clear coat. I'll only have to tape off half the car instead of the entire thing. This will be interesting because I have painted tribal flames, tribal scallops, and basic tribal designs on vehicles before...but never tribal lightning streaks. <img src=icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle> I figure as long as I draw them out first to get the basic idea, I should have no problems with it. She wants nitrous next, but I'm trying to get her to steer away from it. She has a heavier foot than me, and she's CONSTANTLY revving up on and racing peeps. I think nitrous will be overboard for her. Anyway, she's buying a digi-cam in the next couple of weeks, so I will be posting pics of her car, and my car side by side soon. <img src=icon_smile_approve.gif border=0 align=middle>

For shame....you don't know what Tribal Paint Designs are.... *hehehehe* J/K. I'll try and explain the ebst way possible.

<b>Here are Tribal Flames:</b>

They don't really look like normal flames due to the rough edges, and "Tribal-Like" patterns.

<b>Here are some "Scallop" paint jobs:</b>

You can see their just basic "Streaks" painted from the front of the vehicle. If you paint the scallops with a curve to it, they become "Twisted Scallops." <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle>

<b>Basic Tribal Designs:</b>

It's basically just like the name says. Doing squares, rectangles, lines, etc, in a tribal like design.

Tribal lightning streaks are just like the tribal flames in a way. You make the streaks real jagged and wild like how you see with the tribal flames.

Ford Escort ZX2. Bright yellow paint, body kit, touring wing, drop springs, 17" ADR rims, headers, exhaust, CAI, ignition, cam gears, camshaft, short shifter, clutch, competition stereo system, complete yellow interior with yellow and white leather seats, and a custom license plate that says "GRL RACR" <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle> It's a sweet ride without a doubt. She beats ALOT of people with it. It's just funnier than all hell when a guy revvs on her, and she kicks his ass. Thank God she hasn't been able to beat me. <img src=icon_smile_blush.gif border=0 align=middle> I don't know if I would be able to handle that. *ha ha* J/K <img src=icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle>

No, she isn't able to beat me, and that's one reason why she wants Nitrous. I'm able to beat her with and without it. So she want's something that will give her a little something when she races me and other racers. I have ALOT of friends of that are girl racers. Actually, now that I think about it, I have more friends that are girls that are into racing, than guys. Hmm...I think it's time for a "RACER X" House Party! <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

Anyway, you think Geo Metro's are cool that are all pimped out (being sarcastic)..well how about a way righteous pimped out Mac Daddy Dodge OMNI!!!!

Coming to a Walmart near you......Dodge Omni RACER Conversion! *HA HA HA HA*

But if your heart truly is set on a Metro, then get ready for the ultimate Metro...

2klo i dont believe that she cant beat you when you dont spray. my friend had a zx2 and that thing was pretty damn quick, he could take my friends civic ex that had intake, catback, pulleys, cam gears.

but on a side note, was her zx2 stock yellow or did she paint it? if it was stock yellow its an SR (supercharged version of the zx2). but either way yellow is a pimp color <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

No, it's aftermarket yellow. I know which one you're talking about. She's showed me the supercharged one online a few times.

And by the way, both cars (ZX2, and Tib) have the same horsepower (140) but I think the Tib has a little more torque. Not sure on it though. But when the 2 of us race, it's not like I beat her by ALOT without spraying. Usually it's between 1/2 to 1 car's length. But then when I use the spray, I beat her by quite a bit. It's great though because we both have very underrated cars. There's alot of civics and Eclipse GS's, and RS's in this area that are riced out.

Why does everyone that own one of them think they are god's gift to the Import World? <img src=icon_smile_blush.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_shy.gif border=0 align=middle> Anyway, I showed her a pic of your car. It's the one that's in your sig at FxTreme. She likes it alot because of the color...but said it's too slow of a car. *ha ha* I think those are fightin words that I'm staying out of! <img src=icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle>

Hyundai Extreme..yeah they are. I have friends that have their lowriders pictured on that site, so I go there every once in awhile to see if there's any new rides. <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
