Hot Rods How many Hambers own Black hot rods?

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by HOTRODPRIMER, Mar 6, 2018.

  1. Actually, you're both right!

    F-ONE is correct if you are discussing PIGMENT. THEORETICALLY, if you mix the primary colors in equal parts, you get black. (Actually you get a dark muddy brown...try it sometime with oil or acrylic art paints!)

    HRP is correct when speaking of LIGHT. Black is the absence of all light, or at least all "visible" light.

    So, to put it all together...If F-ONE puts equal parts of each primary color on his hot rod, then the pigment "absorbs " all the light and no color is reflected for HRP to see.

    Fine Art and Physics , all in one lesson!!! ;)

  2. This is my old bare bones Hot Rod. I've had her for over 40 years. No paint interior etc. But she's my favorite car that I've ever had.:rolleyes: Ron....[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I'm not sure about the wheels and tires, but for some reason this T-Bird really pushes my buttons...

    I would love to see a picture of it with the hardtop on.

    I would just like to remind everyone that even though the thread is called black hot rods. this is not an invitation to post off topic cars with large diameter billet wheels. I went through and cleared them out...

  15. I do believe that white is the culmination of all colors of the spectrum in fact....

  17. Mix all the colors together and you get a ugly mauve,being in the paint business and then working on the manufacturing end I have screwed up my fair share of paint. HRP

    It was never meant to be black. Just ended up that way.
