Brian, Don't worry about the experience. You already helped anyone wanting to try it by showing the stencil shapes.

I like to be able to plan and then guarantee the pattern will satisfy me... so the thought of just "winging it" bothers me.

Here is one of my few efforts, just to show that you can change things up, instead of following other's styles. I had seen the stencils online, so I cut my own design, then did this more wind-blown version of "flames coming out of vents".

P.S. I also cut the fender shape, but it cracked from vibration, so later we had to weld some supports on the inside, and repair the paint. Live and learn! :-)
