    LOL.

    But for real, how does the process work, is it vinyl or some sort of printing?

    I think I actually saw this technique used on one of those motorcycle shows on discovery. It seems like a laminent that when placed in water can be transfered to a bunch of different materials. Think it's also called hydrographics. It's pretty cool but looks like it takes a little talent to master.

    I believe it's also called hydrocoating. It's how they get graphics on guns such as camo graphics on the AR15/M4/etc.

    I don't know if I've ever met someone as good of a sport as Jimmy. He's taken it all in stride and laughed with us for the last 3 years.

    Speaking of that I can't believe we missed the three year anni of his voyage
