Purple (Dare...No one will miss it!) Or Red looks awesome with the White Walls!
I like plain red or plain black.
Also black upolstery.
Full coat of black then you can apply whatever shade of deep red you like. Bob
Vespaholic, go to the Photoshop thread and post your request there...lots of magicians on there.
The dark blue does it for me
Oh, and a light color like the gold or a yellow (or orange) suits a hot rod! Make it shiny, tho....
Hah, it is fun to get all the opinions! Keep em coming! I'm not looking for any type of concensus, great for brainstorming though.
I found a free program called Gimp that is pretty similar to photoshop. It's pretty easy if you've ever done any photo editing/manipulation. -just used the free hand section tool then, colorize the selection by dragging some slider bars. I'm not very skilled.
@nitrobrother it'll be shiney for sure!
This is my pops that just got painted last week. Its a stock model A color called Chickle. Just a thought.
Appreciate the input, but while I love drab and muted hot rods. That's just not the look I'm after on this one... This car is a bit quirky, it's a happy little hot rod but has a little mean bark. Think late 50s... More of a weesner vibe.
Very Kool, so sounds like a 60s style vibe then?.Love it Mang.
I like the Gold....
Yeah I'm liking the Gold too.
Love your hotrod, it looks awesome! Anxious to see what color you put on it.
Evansville.... Sure miss my time at Whirlpool... Lived there 5 years before coming back home to Texas.
Yep, I see 'Wimbledon White' firewall/engine, with a 'Orchid' violet on the body.......white pinstripes to be the icing on the cake.
That would look killer though too.....
I've been thinking a phaeton version of this with no hood my caps...
Coincidence a framed cherry pie hangs in my office?
B.t.w. off topic are you an Iceman hockey fan?
Go gold! Looks killer on the tub.
I think you already know the color deep down. Love the build!
It's gonna look great any color you decide. Great build, enjoy.
Thanks everybody! Good thing I have the next year or so to torment myself. Hopefully we get the top and side curtains sewn up this spring. I "think" I've established i want those white.
Oh man, I'm diggin the red one. I've been having bad thoughts to paint my tub red too. Good luck on your decision!
I like the red or even an ice blue about the same tone as the current hue.
Sometime in between april 26th and may 29th (2015), you mounted the rear view mirror on the wind shield. And it looks way better, than the one I have in my garage!
Would you mind taking detailed pictures of it for me?
It's nothing special, just a stock model A type mirror. It just clamps on. I like it though!
Thanx for replying!
I like it too, alot - but mine has a longer "arm", placing it lower than yours (as I can see it - so far I only have firewall, one stancion and the mirror! ).
I'll post a picture of it's back side later.
This is my mirror:
Keep 'em kruzin!
