You would spray it all one colour. Then cover up the lines and spray the rest? :p Thats probably the easiest way. Or you could do it the other way around. Depends on what parts exactly your going to do the second colour! :p

You'll have to wait for it to be completly dry though. Depending on the paint this may take a day or two! Then i'd suggest going down to Bunnings and getting a soft 3M tape (the ones designed for walls and that arn't that sticky). They'll produce quite a nice line and be really easy to remove too! :)

Do you have any other colour on/in your car other than white at the moment.. You could always go that one. A mate of mine has a White ute with the red stripe running along the sides and painted his white with the Holden Logo in Red. looks ok.... I intend to paint mine the same as the body of the car though which is Cosmo (you would probably like it Norti!)

Actually, that's not a bad idea, a Holden logo on the engine cover! Just would take quite a bit more work!

Im the same, body colour FTW. & Yeah I like cosmo :p not quite as much as Morpheous thou :)

But give some serious thought to a nice blue, I know its been done to death, but thats because it works.
