If you want to do a dead simple and nice looking layout take a full size (8.5x11) print of the flag and square it up on the hood with the center of the "sun" in the same location you want it for full size. Then tape it down. Then take a straightedge, (I used a sheetrock square) and line it up with the rays and trace along the end of the square. Tape off the lines, get a big protractor or trace around something the same size you want as the sun, make sure everything is nice and straight and then use the krylon color of your choice to paint your rising sun.

You wont get the varying thicknesses of the rays this way, you dont have to do math or a complicated head scratching layout and it comes out looking nice.

78kingcab... that wipermotor is bad ass. Ive been trying to come up with something to put in the center and thats the coolest thing Ive seen so far.

So I had my little brother to a rendering in photoshop of what it would look like. I would do it MUCH lighter, but you still get the Idea.
What do you folks think?

You'll find lots of people use rising sun's ;)

You just gotta be around the right people.

...seems to me we are being held hostage by these candy-ass pussy, limp wrist, hanky twisting, girly-man, cry when Forrest Gump's mom died, crystal gazing, Om chanting, sandal wearing, whiny voiced, oh I broke a nail, fucks.
