Customs A little Watson inspired trim paint.

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Tugmaster, Apr 21, 2013.

  1. It goes without saying that I've always been a huge fan of both Larry Watson and Watson styled cars, especially his "outline" paint jobs. The Doss 58 Impala is beautiful! I wanted to follow that route on my 60 Belair. I am eventually going to shave my door handles, antenna,hood and trunk but I couldn't help myself. I found a copper metallic that is extremely close to the oringinal copper color on the dash so after ALOT of masking here it is.I wanted to keep it simple and subtle. I am pretty happy with the results. My appologies to all the more door haters.
