Using ruthenium-based, pressure sensitive paint?

Someone hit a deer once and made quite a bloody mess on the road. Someone was driving along side of me in the same lane that all the blood was in. Someone was slightly ahead too, so that when he drove through the blood, it was splattered all over my nice and clean white car.

Made for a neat effect if you didn't realize it was blood.

Just puncture your radiator; then the steam will make beautiful steam trails over the car's surface ... for about a mile or so.

i have to say, that is a cool idea. I would buy a car with pressure sensitive paint... Like a "Mood Car". Neato...any ways.. i bet the idea would sell well if it is inexpensive enough to be feasible for the import tuners (aka honda weenies).
