One more request... Can anyone put this "flake" color in a two tone on my 65 and on the wheels with dog dish hubcaps:
I would like the main color to be a satin blue with the top done up in the green flake.
Partially thinking about carrying the roof color down to the back of the trunk... ending it at the trunk line.
holy shit!... Thank you!/Danke!.. well that just made up my mind..
Hi.... I am from Pittsburgh. I have been following this thread for awhile & I am so impressed with NOT ONLY the work you do but also how quickly you DO & also RE-DO things for us car guys.
As you can see.... our Opel is a former drag race car that is being converted to street/strip.
We would like to see it with a "FLAT BLACK" paint job ..... then with RED METAL FLAKE FLAMES on the hood & front fenders & a version with "Psychotic Reaction"written on the side of the car
Front wheels: .... like the wheels on this car with grey spokes
Rear wheels: painted BLACK with LARGER TIRES
and RED TINTED WINDOWS
Thanks in advance for your help....
Hope this helps
...Here's my try.

So, here is the latest project... a 36 Dodge.
It will be shot in Blitz Black and then Maroon Scallops over that, similar to this style:
A good friend did this:
So, have at it boys! Give me som more ideas...
You guys are FAST!!!!
Two very different renditions.... Thanks for your help.
LOL here is part of what ya wanted
Btrsweet.........you've go some skills.
Thank ya Much here is some red added. I kinda liked the mad max look myself lol.
Here it is as you requested
and as I would do it
Diggin the white n green combo. Any way you can copy the front whites on to the back and throw some dog dish hub caps on? Hope I'm not asking too much
Can someone do this one.
In two-tone. Semigloss black
with top/trunk portion a metalflake silver, maybe like a storm grey?
And siver-leaf (maybe just silver if its too hard) lettering saying "461 ci" in a cool font
Nice work 54Caddy.. How about this? ...just a quickie

BtrSweet..... this is SWEET!!!! Like the way you ditched the rear fender flares & and the wider CenterLine Convo wheels.
The fender flares were done by a previous owner and were done expertly. Some people say they "like" them .... others say that they "don't".
I hate to "chop" into such quality work BUT...... I will be increasing the tire height from 29" to 32" and wheel width from 10" to 12" so the "flares" will more than likely HAVE to go.
After seeing the photo shop work you did I feel NO hesitation to get out the Sawz-All & start CUTTING!!! Thanks!!!
Love the flames..... NOTHING I would have thought of..... Especially the color.
Looking forward to seeing what else you have in mind!!!!
BTW... this is something my Hot Rod wife (Gina) would like to see.... GLOSS BLACK flames on the flat black. Doable???!!!???
Thanks again for the time & work.... this is NOT a "pipe dream" request but actually something that I plan to do with the Opel in the very near future!!!!
With all of your help my choices will be MUCH EASIER!!!
You are "hitting the nail on the head"!!!!!
Ditto..... TGIF .... so I'll drink to that!!!!!
Ya I am not a big fan of the slap on wheel wells they just look dumb. I have a Mini and people jam them on them all the time (front and back) makes me cry. Here is your image just black so ya can add anything to it if ya want. I think it would look bad ass just black.
Thanks but I am gonna try and find a way to get close to it LOL , do you think you can photochop my mercury again with that color and a white top that would be really cool. I have moved my car inside a shop to work on her so I can't get any brighter pics till I am done pulling the dents from the roof and re install the windows. Last one I (semi) promise>> Thanks in advance Canman
Man I love all of em !! The gold and the red tops I like the most.
Alright so first off I know this is an Audi but I couldn't find anywhere else to have someone photoshop my buddy's car for him. He is planning on vinyl wrapping his car to look like a police vehicle. I was wonding if anyone could do this. He just wants the roof/pillars and doors white. He is also planning on putting low enforcement on the doors, anything would help and would be highly appreciated.
It DOES look good ALL BLACK..... never would have thought to do the grille also.
Would like to see it with the 10 spoke "gasser style" front wheels when you get a chance.
And then one with "red window tint" on the door & side windows.
This is cool to see develop in front of my eyes..... thanks!!!!
thanks guys..anyone else??
I took another crack at it.

My wife owned a Mini-Cooper S.... It was ALL BLACK .... No stripes of course!!!! I had quite a bit of John Cooper Works performance upgrades done to it. As you know Mini's are very quick. It surprised quite a few Mustang 5.0 owners at redlights.....
So I understand all about Mini's getting NO RESPECT.
