    Hey I was wondering if I could get some of the gurus magic done to my Hudson. Got to help the better half see that all this cash im spending is totally worth it & I do have a plan in mind to my mayhem. 0.0
    Unsure what images would be best so just chucked a heap in a gallery here:
    https://imgur.com/a/Qob6k

    What im looking at doing is:
    • 50 Buick front bumper & grill including the round chrome grill lights. Keeping the Hudsons hood mustache & light up logo. the Grill unit should fit in the hole left from where the Hudsons one was if my measurements are right. It would just cover the top of the hudson indicators.
    • Beehive indicators just under the head lights.
    • louvered hood.
    • Shaved handles, hood ordainment and trunk handle and hudson ord.
    • slight tint to side windows.
    • side pipes - singles not triple(functioning on a cutoff).
    • Lower door/side stainless removed.
    • Stock rear bumper minus the guards. but with a Kaiser overrider. Exhaust either through the bullets or will have backup lights here. Number plate under Kaiser.
    • Sun visor
    • Lowered. Air out is like 3inch. Ride height 5inch.
    • BFG Silvertown white walls with 57 Caddy covers up front. Not sure if I will have pointed bullet or Lancer 4 bar centers (have both)
    • Colour... unsure. White for a bit. then may go primer black. then as for the final colour... not sure. A dark green or cast iron grey or maybe a shiny black. heck even thinking scallops but im open to ideas as long as its not bright.
    Now I know all that is a big ask and would take some time. So even just a few things would be great.
    Open to ideas and suggestions as well.
    More pics can be found on build thread in my sig.

    thanks guys
    Alex

  3. Figured I'd give ya a challenge.... this is a Facel Vega, while the rear looks pretty good, the front and sides could use some love. I wonder if we used GM based cars and too the best of the facel vega and designed maybe what GM would have done in Europe.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I know it's a personal taste, but these are such beautiful cars. I remember seeing a few of them when I lived in LA in the 80's. I'd really hate to see them hot rodded. But then again, this is photoshop and only make believe so here's a version that has been massaged yet keeping the european styling.

    One last quick favor, can someone photoshop this scallop pattern in black and possibly a cream onto the red version. Thanks a bunch in advance. F1BF9CC5-4717-47D7-858C-6DACE6DD351F.jpeg 0A2E0612-7743-4AB9-8E88-8E005CC98A88.jpeg

    Thank you for the picture it’s awesome, could you show it with splash aprons in root beer and the body line where the door handle is in black, thank you again this is much better than painting and hoping for the best!

    The Facel Vega makes a nice boulevardier. Just needs a longer wheelbase and some clean up.

    Given me the inspiration to keep trying photoshop so I can fiddle with different colours etc.
    Slowly getting it. Did you do the paint as a layer or a mask? Im still trying to figure out masking let alone cutting things out etc.
     
  25. @KustomKreeps I do each panel as a separate layer to get the exact dimensions and then merge them and do the color,highlights and reflections. The more you use the program the more tricks you learn. It used to take me hours to do stuff that I can now do in minutes....Practice,Practice,Practice ad infinitum

    Could someone please put this color red on this truck? The truck is real similar to how I hope mine will look when I am done with it, just trying to pick a color early. I ended up swapping that Champ bed for a regular one.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello, I was wondering if you guys/gals could help me out and give this 41 Hudson a Satin Burgundy paint job and some early custom touches like Firestone Wide whites and rear fenders and skirts.
