Herb, do you mean the stickers the youth's put on their cars displaying well known manufacturers such as, Alpine, Pioneer, Turbo and alike or something else?

T9,
Not that mate, sticker bombing or sticker art I think was first adopted by the VAG scene, it involves filling large portions of glass, body work anything with a flat surface with stickers. There's a 106 near me that has a matt black bonnet & about half of it is stickers.

Herb,
Yeah it's been around for a while but it can look spanky when done right. :D

I've seen a skyline done with this but they did it quite well. They designed certain areas of shapes, then filled inside the shape with the so called sticker bombing. But the shapes they cut out first, flowed well with the body work, and filled with the colourfull stickers, didn't actually look too bad :)

From my initial reading of sticker bombing it was the jap drifters that started it. Basically they did it to hide any damage done whilst drifting;)

wouldn't it be worth just buying a tin of paint rather than buying hundreds of stickers that might not even work together, and how is it finished, can you lay lacquer over the top of them?
