    Full coat of black then you can apply whatever shade of deep red you like. Bob
     
  4. Vespaholic, go to the Photoshop thread and post your request there...lots of magicians on there.
     
  5. The dark blue does it for me
     
  6. Oh, and a light color like the gold or a yellow (or orange) suits a hot rod! Make it shiny, tho.... :p
     
  7. 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!

  9. 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.

  26. 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! :D:cool:
    Would you mind taking detailed pictures of it for me? :)
     
  27. It's nothing special, just a stock model A type mirror. It just clamps on. I like it though![​IMG] [​IMG]

  28. 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! :D).
    I'll post a picture of it's back side later. :)
