    I’m sticking with the stock beige on mine, when I paint it. The wife wants something “else.” I’m stead fast on this, so she keeps “suggesting”. Then the other night she mentioned some sort of striping, then this thread pops up with this pic:
    This idea I like, perhaps I can meet her on the middle. So I don’t know anything about paint: what does this entail? Presumably these were put on after paint, but could I apply it before the clear? Are they readily available or is each decal custom?
