    I think you need a new name for it though...Flame Job, just doesn't do it justice. How about Inferno Job! Very Nice!

    Flames and Mercs , two of my favorite things! I can never get my customers to go that extreme. they always want just the nose into the doors. That or ghost flames that are almost invisable, which I won't do anymore. To much effort for so little effect. Very nice job!

  16. Having been involved with several flame jobs, I know how much time goes into masking up smaller jobs.

    How long did it take to mask this one?
     
  17. Being on Velocity doesn't say much for it tho...They must have the dumbest producers with such silly plots
     
  18. Flames look dumb on Mercs.

    It looks better in the pics without the skirts. IMHO they are a distraction being plain

    I'm dizzy. Man that's overboard. Hell of a lot of hard work. I do appreciate your talent.

    Nice flow, very consistent. I've done a few, but this Merc is 'off the hook', 'over the top', and 'extreme'.
    More fire than 'previously experienced'.

    Whilst taping my '36 Five window, getting ready for 'fogging':
    "Did you fingernail ALL the edges?" "Yeah, Ma..."
    ...Can't imagine answering up on this Merc!

    Until I got to the last picture, I thought the car was originally gold and you just painted in the black....less paint.
