    I was thinking about putting 4 wheels on my project but, its been done before and I don't want to just copy everyone else. Maybe something with 5 wheels wouldt be Kool.
    Just do what you like. Anything you do to any car has probably been done before sometime, somewhere. Ever seen any of the really awful Mercs? Some try so hard to do something different that it comes out horrible.

    I know...do what ya want. I just like my stuff to be a little different. I know ya'll get tired of hearing the "what do ya'll think" posts but it takes me a long time to get my vision.

    I studied a lot of old photos, before starting on the fly. We had a concept vision and then we put it on paper. I am kinda bummed now that I have seen it in color. I had thought that maybe if I went with the ivory top it might make a difference....dang. More studying.

    <font color="green"> You drive me NUTS!!

    You build some of the coolest shit and you are never happy with it.

    Perhaps you should consider ricers.

    At least then I could agree with you when you whine about how it turns out.

    I wanted my car to be different...

    Let that be a lesson to ya. </font>

    Let me rephrase that. I was talking about seeing the 35 shop truck in color not the Fly.

  6. Ivory would give a different vibe than White.You could always add some White pinstripes on top of the Ivory to flip out anyone that gets close enough.

    Just do it...it's a complement to anyone when someone else follows or copies an idea. You'll be disapointed in the out come if you don't do what really makes you smile.
