    How hard is it to paint the JEEP on the side of cowl.

    I can't draw a straight line with a ruler. So a brush might not work for me. So what other options do I have.

    Does anybody make decals for JEEP

    Shouldn't be too bad Andy... I'll see how steady my hand is and practice on my cowl... One shot paint should do it.

    Mask it then use a ruler and exacto knife to pull the letters... Not exact, but gives you the chance to do it more than once before screwing it up with paint... At least that's the theory I try to tell myself :)

    I will try it, all I can do is mess up and have to redo it.
    Will try anything once.

    Try a nice firm roller.

    Most of the ones I've seen painted either looked done by hand or with a roller.
