    Thanks guys..Believe it or not when I was building the Chevy I was fortunate that it had the original Fisher body build tag on the firewall which gave the original paint combination and color code which was black and Bordeaux Maroon. I belonged to the Vintage Chevy club at the time and one of the members was able to give me a paint chip which I had matched. The color combination and details are exactly as it was when it came off the assembly line back in 32. Here's a picture of me doing the final furnishings touches after I painted it in my garage. I have painted a number of cars over the years so I wasn't new to the process and a made a makeshift paint booth with plastic poly sheeting and furnace filters in one garage window and an exhaust fan in the other.

  2. I wonder what it would look like lowered and some chrome aftermarket wheels, like something out of the 60's.

    If the admin pulled a 1947 American Made product that fell under the guidelines of a 1964 cutoff then I must be missing something. More than one American jeep has been hot rodded and drag raced.

    I might also add, these photoshops projects aren't real. These are just "what if's" that allows the participants to show their skills and help others with their requests.

    Funny thing - I started on a hot rod version, but switched to a home made woodie I remembered seeing when I was young. Jeez.

    It may have been one single person that didn't like it hitting 'report' twice and it is automatically deleted! A feature that is good in some cases such as spam posts but not perfect!

    You could spend half the day hitting the report button twice and still not eliminate all of the "Off Topic" post that are on this site. I don't see how a jeep is off topic but vintage guitars are perfectly acceptable

    It's the Admin of this page. He's pulled many things he "personally " finds off topic or offensive. I've had him pull jokes he considered political (not true) and cars because the wheels were "too modern". If you noticed besides pulling the jeeps that were photoshopped he also pulled a 1964 Chevelle that was too "street and modern" for his taste.

    I've had stuff pulled for being off topic. Didn't always agree but so be it. Its not my site. The mods have a tough job trying to keep everything on the straight and narrow and there are bound to be those who disagree. Cowboy up and move on. JMO.

  9. Yup, some things are left in some threads (have you peeked at the '37-41 Willys thread?) while others are pulled (I had an image yanked that was an example of a mid-'60s paint color because it was "too new") often because the mod has favorites. Sometimes they're a bit heavy-handed, but all we can do is ask for an intelligent dialog instead of overdone actions.

    On the other hand, that '65 Chevelle that showed up yesterday definitely was in the wrong place.

    Ain't our range, not disagreeing. Just trying to figure out the rules that don't seem to apply.

    Definitely a "Cowboy up and move on" situation.

    Lloyd,
    I didn't think I would like your Sedan Delivery in that green, but I think it looks pretty good. I might try more of a blue/green for comparison. (think Peacock)
    Just a suggestion, I have NO photoshop experience.

    I'm amazed at what gets photo shopped here and how real things look. I wouldn't know the 1st thing about photo shop but wonder what my Coupe would look like if the wheels were either the dark brown or tan like on the body, or posssibly even flat black. With and without trim rings would be great too, but I'm not asking anyone to spend a lot of time doing it, not knowing if it takes a few minutes or hours. Using either photo is fine with me.

    Thanks, in advance if someone could photo shop the wheel color (the dark and light brown and maybe flat black as mentioned above) for me.

    Chocolate brown wires would look great too.

    madfish...Thanks for your help! I'm torn between the dark brown (like the fender and trim) and the tan that matches the body. To me they really change the flavor of the whole car with the dark looking a little more "hot roddy" and the tan more "resto". Maybe that's just me but at least I can picture the car a lot better than I was able to in my mind! Wires would look great too, so thanks for that extra idea, but I doubt that's in the cards.

    Send me the bill for your help! :D
