    ok guys I ran the numbers and my Thunderbird is factory black, with red interior. So I am thinking I might keep it that way with a twist or 2... Could you try gloss black top and wheels, satin black body and because I am on a tight budget painted bumpers-Im thinking a nice mild grey keeping it a rocket era feel. I know its not the ideal but I just priced beautiful bumpers and almost threw up from the pricing!!!

    @dimebag

    It occurred to me that since you're painting with three colors, you could do a simple "Watson-like" paint job using the
    gloss black and grey to accentuate the flat black.

    Haven't mad return runs in that direction in a number of years.

    (Maybe over at the set for "The World's Fastest Indian".)

    Would someone be so kind as to put the 300 bumpers on the Skyliner withOUT the guards? Also paint all but the roof a slightly darker than bright red on one. Thank you. You guys do great work.

    Great job Moose,
    It seems to me that car is crying out to have top removable and rear deck be a pickup bed, with an opening tailgate

    a '57 roadster pickup, if you agree..

    Thanks Moose. You always come through. I’ve always disliked the Fairlane rear bumper. Smaller bumper makes for a big rear body panel though. Thanks again.

    Here's my half-assed attempt. Didn't have a lot of time to put into it.

    That '57 Ford would make a great La Camina. The smaller bumper helps disguise the huge rear end – but a 3/4-ton Ranchero might be cool!

    And I halfway expected you to close his hood for him while you were doing this, just have come to expect nothing but the best from the best photoshop guru on the HAMB.
