Written by noted custom painter Jon Kosmoski and how-to author Tim Remus, this book explains exactly how to apply graphics to nearly any vehicle.

Early chapters cover shop set up, chemistry of paint, pinstriping and gold leaf work. Interviews with artist Nancy Brooks and educator Jeremy Vecoli provide them an opportunity to share their knowledge with a wider audience.

Chapters four through seven feature start-to-finish photo sequences with artists like Jon Kosmosku and Lenni Schwartz.
