Hydrographic

water ink transfer, camp dip, hydroimaging. I get envy looking at some of the carbon fiber goodies on the board. Now I can do them (look wise) on my 9er at fraction of the cost. pretty cool tech too.

I've seen it done alot on shotguns and hunting rifles, I've never given it much of a thought for the automotive field but damn those wheels are sexy.

I can't see the video here at work, but I saw a tv show a couple years ago that showed them doing this process to ATV bodywork - camoflage for hunting vehicles. Pretty damn cool!

There is a local shop that does Hydro graphics. It looks amazing, but is very expensive. Here's a good demo video.

A buddy of mine does this for a living. He does GREAT work, focusing on automotive parts (of any kind) and they come out pissah! this is a very easy process for simple parts, but when you start getting into complex shapes.. well, id say practice first on simple shapes! lol
