    Hey all, new to H.A.M.B and have a question. I have a 51 ford f1 that is blue paint, i just traded for it and it should not have been painted as it isnt the best paint job, i was wondering how i could make it look patinaded or ???, i was thinking paint blank primer then rubbing some of it off for a nice effect. Any ideas.
    here is a pic.

    Can you break it down to a 2nd grader? Are trying for the "Patina" look? If so, the car has to earn it! What's wrong with Blue? What did you trade for, baseball cards?

    And some say our schools are not teaching the basics.

    Id say you have a really nice 60's looking theme going so far with the lake pipes! You might be able to do some sort of Quasi Watson style panel job on the whole car to hide some of the paint problems depending on what they are...

    What a waste. The paint isn't 100% so I'll make it look like every other junk in OSR. Go back to Ruffrodders.

    PEWRSONALLY, I would flat black the whole thing, red the wheels and call it a day, that should give you a NICE look!

    Grab a can of Easy Off oven cleaner in each hand and hose 'er down. Walk away for a few days. When you come back you'll have something you can be proud of posting on the OSR forums.
    Drop in again and let us know how it worked out.

    OK, constructive criticism can be good! Keep the blue paint! Get some chrome rims (if you can swing the price) if not, grab some better looking rims (OEM) from the junk yard, paint em black and get some chrome full-moon wheel covers (u can get them anywhere now a days). Work on the stance, a California rake would suite this theme (Slightly lowered in the front compared to the rear). The black tires can get you buy. And for all that is Holy! get rid of the grab bars on the outside of the cab, you're not a truck driver are you?! And enjoy! Forget Todays trends, there just that, stupid trends! I can go on and on..., but u get the point.

    +1 on the chrome OEM suggestion. Wrap them in wide whites, slap on some spider caps, and keep the blue. I think the paint looks good as is. If it still bothers you, drive it around a while....when it comes to color changes, it's always wise to take your time and make sure you know what you want.

    YOU THINK this is bad...??? YOU shoulda been here four, or so, years ago, Razorshotrods woulda gone away with his ass in his hands and bawling uncontrollably...that said, if you post a question on the HAMB today wanting to "make" patina, you'd still better have mighty thick skin.

    Patina is "earned," not made and flat black/red wheels simply sucks.

    Yeah, but that truck has potential! I'm giving him the benifit of the doubt. Maybe he'll come around. Maybe the only mags he has access to are OSR and the likes. Or maybe we can talk about getting your feelings hurt by some RUDE guy at a car show!

  16. Some 'ya all need counselling... not likely to get it however...
    Meanwhile, leave the boy alone. He's got a cool truck. 'sides he's on our team anyway, right?
    If anyone cared what I thought, they would read the next part...
    Sans the cab handles - mentioned earlier.
    Patina? just wait.. If that paint is as bad as you say, then patina is on its way. If you want to speed up the process, drive the thing to Autorama here in Detroit this coming winter for some severe exposure - just be sure the stuff you do not want to rust is undercoated. Let 'er sit outside through all that weather and sooner than later a bad paint job will fail completely. Thats what patina is anyway, right?

    Ok I'll unload.

    Here we have a newbie that has obviously lost his way. He finds himself with a less than satisfactory paint job on his newly acquired truck and rather than come on and ask a question on how to make it right, he is trying to find out how to take a step backwards.

    Now years ago when I was a newbie, someone would get flamed for asking this sort of question. Now we have people actually offering suggestions on how to achieve such a look. A tech on how to create surface rust and patina!

    Correct me if I'm wrong but the motto on the homepage is, "Spreading the Gospel of Tradional Hot Rods and Customs to Greasers Worldwide." Does fake rust and patina fall into the category of traditional? I thought the board was here to help newbies learn the ropes? Hell I did. Not to teach the the way to follow the crowd and keep with the fads.

    I'm done and I mean no disrespect to anyone including the newbie involved, but its quality not quanity.

    truck looks good as is, new wheels/stance/tires your done DONT FUCK IT UP WITH STUPID FLAT BLACK AND RED WHEELS or "patina" look fuck that. Your saying that blue paint isnt the best paint job in the world so you wanna, if i have my facts straight, paint it a flat or rub some of the paint off??? how in the hell does that make any sense...WOW WHAT A WASTE OF A TRUCK!!

    I don't care much for that blue myself. I'm not about the touch the "patina" aspect though. {shudder}

    As mostly noted, fix the stance, get rid of the baby blue wheels and grab handles. Maybe some scallops or the mentioned panels.

    Or just paint it another color.

    Truck looks OK, But to me ,
    WHY THE HELL TRADE A 55 CHEVY FOR IT ?
    No fake shit on the paint ,Blue isn't the best but it will protect the metal until your ready for a better paint job!
    Some beauty rings might help the rims
