    I am repainting the '39 back to yellow and my gf suggested a flame paint job. What a gal how did I get so lucky?

    Does anyone have any pics of flames on a yellow car or any ideas about what colors would look good with the yellow?

    I have done a search here and found a few but I would like to see more.

    I have hopefully added pics. I will also be changing the hood to a full hood. Why you ask. . . cutting the sides off removes the latches. I am tired of using bungies.

    I have added pics of the car if somone would like to photoshop some flames or scallops.

    Thanks!

    i was just searching the net and thats a tough one. The only one I found was regular orange flames and it looked ok. What about black or white seaweed flames?

    I'd say blue and green myself with maybe a touch of orange on the tips.

    Darker blue, w/ red stripe, or ghost it with a light orange.

    The complimentary color of Yellow is Purple.

    My dad's 40 Dodge is yellow with purple flames. Defiantly not traditional though. Sorry I don't have any good pics of it.

    I have added pics of the car as it is now if anyone would care to photoshop it.

    Thanks

    What about this? This car is close to the same color and I like the flames.

    That looks pretty sharp, maybe a tad less flames would look better.

    I think sublime green flames with black outline would look really good. But thats my twisted opinion..
