    Thanks alot, MoparJoe!!! After re-reading my request, I guess what I meant to say was to delete the background color of the bumper/grill pics, not wanting an "orange-flavored" chrome color. :confused:

    If you or someone else, could please show me those chrome grill/bumper in white paint/powdercoated, also include the painted covers behind the headlights too(version 1); see example of red/white truck.

    and also a brushed stainless steel option like with the metal treatment like in 3rd photo (version 2); see example of yellow truck.

    Lastly, using the grey paint/powder of the green/grey truck. (version 3)

    I would be greatly apppreciated!


    Thanks!!!:cool:

    It's not about being skipped, it's about guys volunteering their precious time to help others. They pick and choose what they want and what they have time for. Sometimes guys will wait weeks, and sometimes nobody will take on the project because it doesn't interest them.

  9. I think people see how quickly some things get done and assume that everything takes 30 minutes to do. I took, what, 5-6 hours to do all the cutting, masking, fixing the boo-boos in your paint, smoothing, and I still didn't have time to do the whitewalls (how big do you want?).

    White:

  10. I'm not sure what "Kelly Green" means to you, 'cause I found a couple of different versions on the web called that color.

    I need help !
    I made a Gimp for a guy on another forum. I m quite a newby about image manipulation.
    So I have 2 questions :

    1/ The problem I have is the original paint is flat, so my result is also flat.
    Does anyone have a link for documentation to make it a bit more shinny ?
    It seems I m not the only one with this problem :)

    2/ A bit technical .... when I need to make a brown car, I change the layer to grey, then colorize, and play with Hue - Saturation to adjust the final color. Which color to colorize first ? Is it a correct method ? I have a lot of difficulty to get the color I want ...

    Thanks a lot.
    PS : I use The Gimp 2.8.6

    Thank you so much! You are right, I know nothing about Photoshop and honestly assumed it was just a matter of clicks... My apologies for coming off pushy. They look awesome... Don't worry about the white walls I have a good visualization now! Thanks again.

    Yup, some stuff can be done fairly quickly, others take lots more time. My '59 "TeeChero" p'shop, (two pages back, post # 12945) took about 6 or 7 hours and all I did was move a few things around and fill in. I started out like most others, got the free 30 day trial and went from there.

    1) Try to find similar cars on the Internet with similar angles etc. You may be able to draw it in. I maintain an archive of various photos for that reason.
    2)Damifino. I've gotten lucky a couple of times doing similar things that you did.:D

    I think I spend 5 hours for the Pontiac 36 above. And about 20 hours for my own Buick project :p
    It seems so easy ..

    Nice! Trust me, I want to chop the top (at least I think that's what you did) for sure! I just don't trust my skill set... So far everything I've done to the car (V8 swap, tranny, driveline, rear end, front end, other misc things) I've done myself. But when comes to cutting and welding.... Not to sure. A guy quoted me 5 grand to do it, don't have that kinda money either...

    I think that car looks sweet un-chopped.....just needs a few, mild custom touches ;)

    Very nice Ruben.
    Don't forget BFMC14, you can also go the rear blinds and front visor route for the hiding the interior direction too.
