I have a Yellow ford mustang, I've always wanted one of these.  Now I want to put the Steelers log on the trunk of the car and I want to add black stripes down the side of the car.  How hard is this going to be?  What all would I need to do this?

I'm assuming that you want this done with vinyl stickers. Professional vinyl shops can usually do it fairly easily and it shouldn't be too expensive. I've had bad experiences trying to put pinstripes onto cars myself and wouldn't recommend it, personally.

I don't know how big you want the logo to be, but you can probably have the stripes airbrushed on, if that's something you want to consider. You'll need to find someone who's experienced in working with cars, though, if you want it done right.

I really wanted to try this myself. How much harm could I do if it's just stickers? I could airbrush it on too. I have a small paint brush sprayer and I have the logo so I could tape it off and spray it right? That would be more of a mess if I messed up though.

For me, the stickers just got frustrating. I messed up a few times, kept having to buy new ones because they don't "re-stick" well, and eventually had someone with experience do it. The airbrush might be good if you're careful, or maybe you can look for some how-to videos online for the stickers, or even both, to help you decide?

That is an excellent idea. I am going to go to youtube and see if I can find some "How-to" videos on decaling and airbrushing. I have talked to a couple of buddies and they are all set to help out. We are going to practice on some old derby cars we have out back.

I have to agree with the "having a professional to do it" crowd. I tried to put pin stripes on my daughter's first car and when we started to give it to her for her birthday, I noticed all of the pin striping I had put on had sagged to the ground. So I had to take it to a professional anyway. I should have just saved myself some time and a little money and done this in the first place.
