How to make stripes on 4-wide cars
A lot of people asked me how to build various stripes on the bonnet of 4-wide cars. So here's a guide to explain how to do it.
About this creation

It is really simple to make. You need a angular brick, and put it on the sides. Then make a ''block'' of 1x4, 1x3, 1x2 or whatever pieces, make sure the one on top is SNOTted! Then you can make variations of your stripe idea. For the Viper I used two big white stripes and one lil' blue stripe in the middel. Go as far as you want :)

I used it on the Ascari A10, the Dodge Viper, and the Ford Focus Martini Rally

:D Some variations...

Hope this helped!

@Ape: Yes, four wides are easy but they are so easy to build, and I like to share how far I go with building them. Hope you understand :) @Sven: Thanks! @Starscream: Also thanks - well, I replied you already :) @Kevin: actually because you are saying it so much I did this - so actually thanks! @Rolling bricks: Thanks! @Andy: Well, yeah. But you need to print, cut and stick, and this is more fair as LEGOŽ :) @Marcel: go ahead! This is so populair that you even don't need to mention me. If you do it is great ofcourse! :) Thanks all people, I am glad this helped!

It's really cool, but, in my opinion, it's easier to make homemade stickers :)

Quoting Starscream Soundwave Oh right! I've not seen those before. Must get my hands on some ;) Oh, no, I don't think you told me.. Cool, I look forward to seeing it :)
Wait... let's get some ''this week'' back:
Quoting our conversation at your creation ''Jeep Hurricane'' Starscream Soundwave
Quoting Loek Marcus Oh like that :D when someone says HW I think about everything HWish... The Deora II is awesome though. @Alex my buddy icon is about to change, I am swapping my REAL R8 for another car which is very different...
Oh :) Cool, what to?
Loek Marcus: I thought a 2010 Mazda3 MPS. I have some wild ideas... :)

Quoting Starscream Soundwave What fourteen wide are you building?? :O
A 2010 Mazda3 MPS, I thought I already told you that... anyway it is place of the Audi R8, it is not going very well... The front is ready but needs to be higher and the wheelbase is long. Also my pieces lack is getting a problem slowly...

Quoting Starscream Soundwave I've never used one of those pieces to hold it in place before! Good idea, though the downside is you get a big stud on the side ;)
No, these are bricks with a stud on only one side :) Thanks though, yeah, you could lay it in too, but not in LDD :)

Quoting Ape Fight Summary: SNOT. I wouldn't normally 'like' a 4-wide, but you've actually gone quite a way beyond what most 4-wides achieve, and so, 4 stars. I'd like to see you move ups few sizes though, 4-wides are too easy for you
Right on time! Coming up is a 14-wide car, wait patiently...
