|DeLorean fuel flap|
So, you have one of those regular hoods but you want that fuel flap look. Sure, you can do it for real and cut into your hood. This has been done, but as you can guess, it is a lot of work...and you get one shot at it. If you want a cheap version, I can help.
You will need to get some graphic tape that is about 3/8 inch (about 10mm) wide. These can be found in most art supply stores. Make sure the finish on it is matte, and not gloss. You will also need a ruler or measuring tape.
|Things you will need|
From the outside edge, measure 11.75 inches in and run your tape parallel down. Remember, I am doing this on the opposite side, and I am too lazy to mirror my images before posting.
|Ha! I have two fuel flaps.|
Wow, looks great. You now have a fuel flap hood, you have joined the elite of DeLorean owners.
I hope by now, you know I am joking...except for the part about fuel flaps being the on the best of DeLoreans. Taping a flap line on your hood only looks good from far away and in low-res pictures. Although, the stickers will add a few horsepower to your car.
Next time, I will show how to make your regular car doors look like they are gull-winged doors...you will need 1/4 inch tape and a ruler.
