Wow! While I don't condone graffiti in the least, you do have to admire the talent that some of these folks have! :o

It's probably a decal... ;)

But ditto to Russ' comment.  The next weathering challenge car?

I wonder if those paint jobs required an airbrush and if so, where did they hook up the compressor?

You know, sometimes I'd rather see Graphetti then factory finish.  Most cars today are way too dull for my tastes.

They could be using CO2 tanks. That's what I used before hurricane Katrina put a stop to my modeling.
Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.

There's an entire industry supplying the more advanced taggers with sophisticated paints and spraying accessories, including about a dozen different nozzle types.
