    Saw this car at Easter when it was in bare metal, and it is incredible, so fluid so right. Congrats.

    FANTASTIC custom Kartsa.
    "Subtile" with so much detail body work, and perfect flow all around.
    Can't wait to see it finished.

    Yesterday I was boogering a muffler back onto my '64 Olds (after I'd smashed it off getting it onto my trailer) and I thought I'm a pretty good fabricator. Now I see this guy and I realize that I'm just another no-talent poser ass-clown with an old car. Nice work, what engine you got in there?

    I really like the final color ! The glow is unbelievable and these are just small areas.Just imagine how it will look on the whole car.Your '49 Buick is going to be a very,very tasteful car with just like Rikster already said,subtle body mods and you are right in the process of "writing" Custom Car history...

    Beautiful car!

    I think thats got to be my favorite custom....it makes me want to build something swoopy and graceful.
    It will look incredible in that titan red color although Its such a tasteful and understated car I'd go with gloss black.
     
  15. That's the coolest custom I've seen for some time. The titian red with gold is king.

    I was wondering if I was missing something on the paint, like where's the clear coat.

    Personally I hope you show off your talented body work with a real paint job. But like they say to each their own.

    I'm going to have it painted eventually.But first I have to have bumpers chromed and interior finished and so on.Shiny paint will come last.

    It's stunning, but I think it needs to be shiny and have chrome bumpers, and yes I know, chrome's very expensive. Shiny paint will bring out the lines that flat keeps invisible.
    It's one hell of a beautiful ride.
