Vinyl saves a ton of time & helps if you are doing 8 bodies that need to look the same. Im not saying it's better but for me it works great in certain situations. Here's my Lightning body, logos & numbers are vinyl.

I completely understand. I used to feel that way until I started
using it sometimes. Most of my stuff is still hand cut but when I
can average $20/hr instead of $4/hr painting I call it getting paid
for my time. On mine the lightning bolt, eyes & window trim were
all hand cut because I can cut that faster than using the computer.
As for the logos...to heck with that!

You have to realize that most of the painters who still cut 100% hand cut, don't paint for the money... If that were the case we'd all be using computers to do our work. I don't try to kick out shells left and right just simply because its a hobby of mine, not a job. But the money I do make easily makes it worth it for me to continue to hand cut everything. And I have a sense of pride in the fact that I didn't need a computers help.

well i wouldn't say "Cheating"
as most of the stuff i do is "Free Hand" now here are some of my examples of how do we say
"Cheating" i used Vinly to help layout some of my borders and such but how "One" is able to not make it look like your "Cheating"???
is the art......
still not sure how one "Cheats" using Vinyl...but i guess some of nowdays best arbrush artist such as Terry Hill, Crag F. Mike L. and countless others must be Cheaters..????? they use Frisket film? and Vinyl, auto mask etc. etc.........
and these guys make a "High 6 figure Income"...????
However i can Understand the being able to do "It" for he art of it....
but to say "Cheating" thats like saying someone that has "Talent" is not really talented???
but these photos will speak for them selves
i might add "NONE Of the Painting used Wraps" or printed Vinyl thats all 100% "Painted" with airbrush and AirGuns"
but "Printed" vinly thats different? it's just a sticker? but they still look nice...

Here is my Lightning Mcqueen body that I run on a modified Xray T1M chassis, looks great chasing the boring old 1/10 tourers around the track where I race!!

Lightning McQueen is awesome. I love the shells. I don't even have my truck yet and I was trying to figure out a way to do Lightning McQueen. My youngest daughter is a HUGE Cars fan.

I don't have the pictures on my computer @ work, but I did a dynoco Mcqueen body because you hardly ever see it. You can see it in my member gallery.
I just found this one
