It’s Friday! The day we, traditionally, take a moment to remember our brothers and sisters in Dimension Paint, a strange and beautiful parallel universe where all living beings are just like us, but all objects are rendered with the skilled hand of a mid-century graphic designer. It’s a beautiful realm, but a bit tricky if you’re, you know, trying to do surgery or something.

Yo Torch, I’ve often thought about applying an automotive paint to a non-car (e.g. a hardshell backpack, pictured, or something smaller like a phone case). Idea was I’d crack out my compressor & spray gun, order a color match kit and paint <object> the same color as my car. I figure if anyone at Jalopnik has ever done this it might be you (or possibly Tracy - but I don’t know how you can match old Jeepy rust). What you think - good idea/bad idea?
