My BMW Artcar/ Ultimate sharpie mod!

First off... I'm going to bet 50% of people are going to hate this .. but i'm ok with that. I did take "inspiration" from the "sharpie lamborghini" (props to him, this took me about 12 hours) , but I have been doing artwork with sharpies for a while so this isn't my first time at this (AKA don't try this at home).

I will do a proper photoshoot when my new wheels come in in a couple of weeks, but I know you all had to see this!

Yes.. I painted my car with a sharpie paint pen...and here are the pics to prove it and to keep people from thinking it is a vinyl wrap. enjoy and comment all you like.

thank you very much everyone ... I'm stoked everyone likes it. Proper photoshoot will be done with the new wheels. The art changed the look of the car so much I had to go with an equally sick wheel... stay tuned.

You deserve it man, you don't normally see someone coming out the blue in the BMW community, try something completely different and have everyone dropping their jaws in amazement.

Lol do they make glow-in-the-dark sharpies? Would be pretty funny interesting to see glow-in-the-dark artwork on a car.

I had thought of that but I didn't sand the paint before hand so it would just chip off. The paint I used is an oil base and I put about 5 coats of wax on top . If it chips from rocks I have a sharpie in the glovebox

I really do appretiate that! I have always been a fan of the "art cars" and wanted to do something "standoutish". I think I accomplished my goal

I'd say before your entire artwork gets chipped, you should save the hood and encase it or save it, and get a new hood.
Imo this is a big personal accomplishment lol, also this thread should be stickied!
