    Thanks!
    They're all cut into the mask, then peeled and painted in order. First, draw the design on the outside with a marker. Trace those once on the inside with a sharp knife. The drawn lines interfere with seeing what's already been cut, so they're all wiped off with alcohol and a rag. This makes it easy to see the lines already cut; better still with a bright, even light source - it refracts off the cut lines quite nicely. Following the previous cuts, make a matching cut parallel, to make the appropriate masked lines. Peel them first, because any adjacent masking will just take 'em up with it if you don't.
    The whole process isn't difficult, just tedious and finicky.

    Here is one other tip on cutting the pinstriping. I usually cut the first side of the line out. Then I spray a light coat of white paint over the cuts. This really helps with seeing the first line. Now you can simply cut a parallel line to the first one that you cut. I find that by doing this my pins are much more consistent and even.

    Spamcake is right. It is extremely tedious and time consuming but usually worth it for the end results.

    Looks like I have a few more to consider for the judging now. I will work on the judging this weekend and post up results early next week, probably Monday.

    First, please let me take a moment for congratulating all the participants on their entries. They are all works of art and something to be very proud of. It takes a lot of time and effort to complete a body with the detail and complexity that some of these entries have as well as courage to lay them out in front of the Internet for open discussion. Well done to all.

    Here are the results, counting down to 1st place:

    Barry Scott: Alfa


    Design: 3
    Execution: 3
    Difficulty: 3
    Total: 9
    The design is pretty simple. Not many colors or tricky techniques to gain points with.

    Hirme: Hyper7


    Design: 5
    Execution: 4
    Difficulty: 4
    Total: 13
    Flames and scallops run rampant around any track. Good choice for a buggy.The flow, however, does not compliment the body lines....nor does the pink.

    hijacker: Revo Crowd Pleazer


    Design: 6
    Execution: 7
    Difficulty: 6
    Total: 19
    Scallops always look good, as mentioned before, but like your other entry, the execution is off. The lines in the scallops could be more straight and even. The black fades in the silver are a bit chunky.

    Barry Scott: Stratus


    Design: 6
    Execution: 6
    Difficulty: 7
    Total: 19
    Unusual design and layout. Thumbs up for originality, however the neon and dark greens aren't doing it for me. Nice use of glitter. The cut lines could be more smooth.

    Hijacker: Protoform Caddy CTS.


    Design: 7
    Execution: 6
    Difficulty: 7
    Total: 20
    If the focus of the scheme is flames, then they need to be flawless. Try spending more time on details like pinstripes and shape. Also the symmetry on the lights/ grille is off. Good ideas here, but not executed well.

    Sparx: Stratus 3.0

    Design: 6
    Execution: 7
    Difficulty: 7
    Total: 20
    Nice graphic design. The lines I can see appear perfect. I would have liked to have seen the black lines also cut out instead of faded. That seems to be the only "airbrush effect" on the body. (It's the ol' rattle can man left in you)

    Wrobcio: Crowd Pleazer


    Design: 7
    Execution: 8
    Difficulty: 7
    Total: 22
    Classic flame shapes and colors. I really like this body, but it just needs a bit more ooomph....something to take it to the next level.

    Barry Scott: Olly?


    Design: 8
    Execution: 7
    Difficulty: 8
    Total: 23
    I'm sure I have seen the scheme somewhere. The tricks to executing these J-style paint jobs properly are perfect symmetry and straight/ even lines. Good job, but could use more time.

    Designt1: DNA


    Design: 8
    Execution: 7
    Difficulty: 8
    Total: 23
    Very nice sedan. The schme and layout is very eye-catching. Points deducted for the finish. The light detail seems rushed.

    designt1: Dodge SRT-8


    Design: 8
    Execution: 8
    Difficulty: 8
    Total: 24
    Original tribal design and color scheme. Nice use of color shades for drop shadows . There are a couple heavy handle blade marks. BIG UPS for carrying the scheme onto the scoop.

    Wrobcio:HPI JEEP WRANGLER


    Design: 9
    Execution: 7
    Difficulty: 9
    Total: 25
    You found that oommph! This body is amazing. One of those that anybody would be crazy to actually use. The only thing I took points off for were the stray black marks (drop shadows in the white) and for the wavy flag effect. Try turning the dots in the checkers into lines at high and low points.

    Spamcake: 1/12 Speed 8

    Design: 9
    Execution: 9
    Difficulty: 9
    Total: 27
    Spam could fart and it would be meticulous. Anything he does is perfect...the perrenial PRO. I appreciate his offering at the last second to complete this competition. I would, however like to see some more shading in the actual tidal waves. It may be there, but the camera did not pick it up.

    Mes: Jammin Crowd Pleazer


    Design: 9
    Execution: 9
    Difficulty: 10
    Total: 28
    All I can say is WOW. Mark has proven to be not only creative, but completely INSANE....and I thought I tried cutting challenging schemes. I did find 2 flaws.....can anyone else point them out? Also, the "'" in Jammin' comes at the end, not before the n (Bonus points for using Faskolor Key Lime Pearl....must be reading my column )

    Winner: Mes, by a nose.

    Nice job, again, to everyone!

    Josh,
    Thanks man! I can't believe I put that ' in the wrong place. That was a good catch. I guess I'm gonna have to do another one with it done correctly! Where is that spell check on my masking????????

    Everyone did an awesome job. They all look sweet.

    I'll be back to judge the pros this month. Let's finish the year strong!
