I kinda messed up a few things, and it's not as shiny as the picture makes it look, but before I started scraping off paint and stuff, it looked really cool.
I might have to re-do it once I ding it up enough, it doesn't wanna stick too well because I don't think I used a coarse enough sandpaper on the naked marker.

Rust-Oleum "army green" and "earth brown," and Krylon "Ultra-Flat Black."

You can see a couple places where the paint came off with the tape, and on the handle it did it but I just tried painting over it with the black, since my grips would cover it. But yeah, thanks for all the help Wookie!

next time try taking sandpaper to it before painting, helps it stick better.

Thanks for trying to help. I actually did use sandpaper, I think I just used too fine of a grit.

Ok, I'm planning on doing this soon. I have a question, just so I don't screw it up. Would I have to remove the black paint from my 98?

Not necessarily. Although you might get the paint to stick better to bare metal than to the original finish. I would say try it out. If it doesn't hold, you can always strip the finish off later use Jasco Paintstriping paste (or some similar product)

Here is something I have been working on.
Not exactly tiger, but something I call Ghost striping.
Tell me what you think...

Thanks, I used Krylon camo paint. Its was my only choice unless you can read Japanese. The tan highlights are hand painted with Testors model paint. Thanks to you for the technique. I will probably repaint it a few times. I want to try it with the strips going horizontal next time and see how it looks. I will post when its done.
