damb i can get any thing to upload
Okay, I admit it, I'm a bit slow on the uptake with this stuff. Anyway, here's your car "primered", chopped and raked. The color stuff is still kicking my ass tho, (maybe I should read the instructions...naaahhh. ) Maybe Hooligan can color it in. He did a killer job on that old Chrysler.
Nice! Somebody ought to build that for real!
I'll 2nd that!
lowered, mild chop, b pillars leaned forward, skirt extended down to body line to flow, rear bumper made taller, and gas door filled
That skirt mod adds a nice touch, bumper looks better too. Who's gonna color this car?
Lunch hour quickie.
Decided not to paint the tops of the fins,hopefully this helps you out.
G'day Guys, love all your work! you guys sure have talent!! wish i could do the things you guys can!!
Im going to put some red flake on the roof soon. But cant wait to see what it will look like. If anyone is up for this feel free to work your magic!
Here You go I went ahead and fixed a rest of the paint too.
WOW!!! This thread is GINORMOUS!!
Anyone care to throw some dark maroon paint on this? Wheels and tires options? Black walls, white walls, cheaters, chrome reversed with spider caps, Halibrands? Thinking 60's street...
Couldn't find straight on shots, but these are some wheels I'm thinking about...
I'll post this one why'll we're waiting. Pretty much what my coupe will look like in a few months....
A little Hussy in it!!! Not that I think it look that good on this car with mis matching wheels, I do think the Ansen's out back with cheater tri lined Hursts would look rad! Maybe matching five spokes would be better...
I feel like we're heading a direction you father would like. I for one would love to see some flames on the car. Why not right?
JJ, I really dig the chrome steelies!!! Thinking chrome reversed might be the way to go. Cheaters out back would be neato! I think pops would dig it too!
The 5-spokes are cool too, but thinking blackwalls, maybe. Or not...
I'm thinkin this color is the way to go also...
For some reason I feel like my scale of the wheels is off and they look like 16-17 inch wheels. You get the point though.
I think you're on to something...
SWEEEEEEETTTTT!!!!!! Thanks a ton!!! Looks awesome!!
Here's a couple for you.
WOW!!! Now that's a whole nother perspective! The dark maroon is really sweet!
Dare I ask for a JamesD photoshop assist? After 7 years in primer I am making the push for real paint this year. It is shaved of all trim and has moulded seams. I already have been influenced by all the photoshops on this post, but especially JamesD's many oddball restylings. So I am changing from Shiny candy red to flat pearl, but that may not be difficult enough to pull off. Could you do a Gene Winfield fade in red? After all, the car is a one year design based on a Gene Winfield Chrysler prototype. I will post the real car result, I promise.
Hope you have a bigger photo. That one isn´t going to work.
Thanks mate!! looks great! i'll be leaving the body paint as is for awhile but the roof is getting done soon! thanks for ya time!
I dont know man, cars in good shape. I wouldnt do too much, just fix the roof. and shine up the rest. start cruzin sooner.
chrisclarkcustoms...damn...you nailed that one!!! Gawd that looks good!!!
