Moose....Love the Flames on the '55.......
Alright, I wanna play now.
How about a dark blue suede, lowered, with Hollywood flipper caps?
Why would you paint it? I can't photoshop, but how about leave the body shiny, lower it, and paint just the white roof? Darker blue, pearl white, or maybe even black?
I think you could do just about anything to a 55 Chevy and it would still look good
I personally can't stand that color blue-- it's way too Smurfy for my liking. And eventually it will need to be painted, as there are so many flaws it that paint job that don't show up in photos...
Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!.... now to win the lottery and get her built!
Holy crap, I think I'm in love... I actually like the two-tone with the darker blue. Thank you Moose!
Just picked up this 63 GMC yesterday... Anybody willing to photoDROP this truck with wide whites, and some white scallops and a white rooftop? Thanks so much!
Here is my attempt at your request...
Something totally different.....
Oh you guys are killing me! If I have more than on choice my head will explode! I love the inspiration! It's what keeps me going!
White is so over rated.
Now that is wicked cool!! Incredible. Wow. I'm kinda speechless.
Would someone like to take a crack at my RPU in this color ?
body color windshield posts and frame, same for the wheels, beehive caps and trim rings.
Ceramic silver exhaust and chrome wishbones, headlight bar and front end.
Here's a quick one..If you want I can build up the engine and add headlights..also not sure what exact caps you want so I did these..Should give your an idea
Thanks, that's nice. It gives me a good idea and shows that it will look good.
I'm going to be using Edelbrock valve covers and gold Rochester carbs on the tri power.
Not there yet, but getting closer.
I added some accessories to make it look more finished
Madfish...A friend of mine bought a new 351 Mustang in 1969 and painted it with lace...It was the talk of the town. Brings back memories.
Looks good thanks.
Now I want to get it finished
Does anyone here know how to automatically match colors in MS paint? I mean if I have something that I want to erase by painting over it and match the surrounding color. I can never get the colors to match. Anyone care to share?
I haven't used MS paint for quite some time so I'm not really up speed with the latest version but they must have an eyedropper tool to sample the color your trying to match to get you pretty close.
Moose , thanks the T looks great and got here in fast time . Tell daughter that , like you , are the best !
Thanks Blue...Looks great...Should be a big hit at the show
Since your bored, how about doing some work on Ratatouille's fabulous custom as he described his desires
I plan to do like this drawin:
But on this drawin, my car is yellow, and in reality, my Fregate is Orange Lamborghini Pearl...
I wanna paint the scallops with Roth Baby Metal Flakes product, and the choice is difficult...can you help me or give me your opinion please?
