Yaril - that thing looks awesome . I like the way the dash ties in with the roof treatment .
that shop truck paint is out of this world.
I love this post and am thinking of having my hood re-done. All the metalflake, fish scales and geometric striping is very appealing to me.
Found these pics on another site. Love it!
Yaril, you have nailed it.
Absolutely! Curious though...Is that chrome paint, tape or real trim? Either way it is a bitchen car!
Madnomad,is real cromtape
Keep this thread alive, i am thinking about buying a 64 Impala next week. It will definately have a crazy candy paint job. Need more ideas !
Just a little something to keep this thread alive, doing a quicky on my buddys fairlane. Some funky lettering on the decklid next, then lots o wet sanding and clear coats.
Dude! You're my frikken hero! That looks awesome!
That paint design is totally cool man!
Yeah dude, thats waaaay kool. Might even copy the "endless line panels" when it comes the time to paint my project
One thing drag racers and lowriders have in common = Bad ass paint.
JRO and dogpatch

After years of watching this thread and being inspired to one day try my own hand at painting something, I finally did my first 'project' on a friends OT bike. She likes butterflies, so that's what I did. I learned a lot on what to do and what not to do. I'm already buying materials for another project.
It was pretty cloudy when we did the 'reveal' so the flake and pearl are hard to see, but I'm pretty stoked for my first time.
I think it looks great! Looks like a Ducati tank
Mattimus, great job for first time. I can only imagine someday I'll be brave enough to try and pull off something like that.
also great avatar.
Thank you. I believe it is a Suzuki SV650 if I remember correctly.
Thank you. It really wasn't as hard as it seems. Give it a try!
this thread is too good to sit idle, i'll rev it up with the other side of the fairlane. bring 'em on.

Here is my friends 31 Nash painted by another good friend, TomCat. TomCat does awesome work fwiw.
I think perfect should sum it up!
Damn! Both those rides are badass!
The paint on my just finished shovelhead project.
The light isnt verry good so the metalic dosent show through.
That paint was inspired by this thread. The 55 pontiac is next.
