Truck caught fire...but in a good way

I did a little airbrushing on my truck. I still needs to be buffed and polished but I wanted to take some pictures. I only did the hood and tailgate. I don't want to attract too much attention since it's a daily driver. Anyways here are the pictures, looks better in person.

If I say yes, is it bad?.

Thanks for the comments so far. I think I am in desperate need to get some nice wheels and tires to set it off. When I get the money, that will probably be the first thing. It would probably make a big difference too.

When the sun hits it, the kandy colours come alive. There is some purple pearl on the tips that really shines in parts then disappears when you move around it. People see it and try to find it again. They say thats the best part.

please tell me you paint graphics on cars for a living, because if you don't, your wasting your talents elsewhere.

No, I don't paint for a living, only 19. I don't think I would really want to either. More of a hobby than anything, I want to do some side jobs for people in the summer though for extra cash. Maybe my truck will spark some interest lol.

Dude thats awesome. I would start a small side business if I was you. You could make a killing doing stuff like that on the side. Heck you could probably do it and live of it.

Looks real good! I really like them. You almost need some flames going down the side imo.
