Toronto Department of Zombie Disposal

Completely inspired by Eve‘s car which got featured on BBG a while back, I had a lot of fun stenciling my truck with a similar text and logo, made permanent with red spray paint over the truck’s matte black base. You can click the photos for much bigger versions.



PS. I’m sure you remember the winged skull on the driver’s side, and my long gone camo Porsche.

Quick update… Nefarious took this picture of me doing the work, so I snagged it off her camera.


Edit: Hello Digg, Hello BBG!

    Gillian, I keep expecting to see it zoom past us one day here. It would be exciting and infuriating at the same time…

    That is sweet! I’d love to do something like that to my car but I can’t quite get myself to commit to it. My green Toyota Corolla just isn’t badass enough, ya know? Great gas mileage…check! Badass…um yeah no

    Shannon- how did you cut the tape without scoring the paint underneath?

    I like your execution of this theme better than the original. On a related note – these guys are based here in Missoula, MT and make some of the best zombacalypse survival tools ever. Perhaps a tool rack would be fitting for your truck?

    Anselm – It does score the paint a little bit, so I’m pretty conscious of not cutting past the borders.
