    I'm going to be painting scallops on my truck, and am looking for inspiration. Im going with a sort of suede brown in a semi gloss for the main color, and am thinkin a gloss black scallops design. Simple is what I'm going for. Google images sucks for scallops designs, and I'm having bad luck finding anything remotely similar to what I'm thinkin.

    Also, ATTN: MINNESOTANS, anyone know any good custom painters in the twin cities area who do scallops? I'm gonna paint the brown part myself, but think the scallops part might be a bit too ambitious for an amatuer like myself.

    Thanks!

    Here are mine. At first I hated them, but they've grown on me. Definitely not the skinny 60's style most people do. Im going to get rid of them, but just threw it in to mix the thread up a bit.
