Don't fight it...
I always liked the snake scale effect as depicted on the quarter panels.
Sepnt a good hour scanning the pictures. Though a hard core old school drag guy, I attended a few low rider car shows in the 70's. I appreciated the talent, skill and immagination that went into the paint jobs. A lot of drag racers shared the same taste in that era as found here. Makes me yearn to find some photos of speedway/flat track bikes that were adorned in this form of artistry.
This car is a classic look. Custom paint, nice tin work from nose to tail, Hillborn 2-port, stubby headers. Squint the eyes, and its Lions 1965.
Awseome work Dutch bloke
Stellar job Perry !!!
These Merc grilles on '60 Chevys almost make me sick but on this '59 Pontiac its really badass, love it.
All I got was red X's...
Nice job !
Knas-n, do you have more pics of the brown/gold scalloped Ford?
The Packard with the chrome tape is incredible. Sweden holdin it down pretty tight.
Who's 60 Olds is the one under Jon's one? The blueish one is mean. 1st time i see.
I dont post much, mostly just watch, read & learn from others, thought I would share with everyone what you influenced me to do. Here are some before and after pic's. The surfboard was a rebuild from someones trash. The Steering Wheel is a Superior 500 that I purchased at my local Junk Yard, I got to looking at it one day and decided to prime and paint the badly faded grip, I had nothing to loose, it was just hanging in my garage as wall art. When finished I decided to install the wheel on my daily driver and after 3 months of sun and abuse it is holding up perfectly.
Hope it passes the test
A couple of pics on my laced/flaked panels on my van.
Roof is flaked too.
Killer job on both items. I really like the board
