Pinto Wall Art, Idea
« on: June 07, 2012, 10:15:37 AM »
Was looking at my wall the other day in my room. I have one wall that is completely blank.

Was surfing Ebay and came across some fenders & quarter panels.

Had an idea come to me. What if I was to take a quarter panel or fender, and paint it some color (to protect it from rust) and then either hand paint or use decals of pinto-related things on it, and then hang it on the wall. Was thinking across the top of the fender (long narrow section) have some kind of sunset with a pinto driving by, maybe a horse running behind it symbolic of the pinto logo.

What do you guys think? Would diffidently be different & unique.

That sounds like it would be cool... I've heard of some interesting things being placed on walls so why not a fender! Especially with how you described it. Really sounds neat!

Had a very bent fender, complete with decals,off of my race car, on the shop wall since 1986. Very good reminder of where to stick your front bumper.
Its better to be a has-been, than a never was.

I've had a rear bumper & decklid off one of Jeff Gordon's Luminas, a hood off John Andretti's K-Mart/Little Caesars T-Bird & The nose off a Mike Bliss supertruck hanging on my garage walls for years. They make excellent decorations.
