    Seeing how you're from Pampa, I'd call Chris Thompson and have him do it.

    Taped off the lines, used a red scrotchbrite pad and 1000 grit sandpaper to scuff the paint really good, masked it up, shot it with black paint followed by a clearcoat. I also put a pinstripe along the edge so it wouldn't just end in a dead line. Sets it off pretty good IMO. Also, I am not a huge fan of using matte black when then rest of the vehicle is shiny. Just doesn't blend well to me.
