nice job, alex.....
Basically it won't look anything like it does now. It will look way more "Watson" when it's done.
Did I miss something? (probably)
What color striping?
Looks really good fellers!
We're going to try to do it without striping. If we do it will probably be light blue.
Looks great so far, cant wait to see the finished product... would you guys hurry up already.
Normally, I would say striped panels are a MUST for a Watson styled car. But the lace adds so much texture and line into the mix. I think a pronounced faded edge might do the trick. Plus, striping is often used as tool to clean up the edge of the panels and hide the build up difference of the new layers of paint and to prevent checking later on(I'm sure you know this). Your panels are just candy over your base, so I can't imagine there is very much build up. It's basically an aesthetic option at this point. It's cool that you are still leaving the possibility open.
I'm diggin it.
Crap...total crap. Can I have it?
That thing is crazy..... kinda like a piece of concept art. Looks good on paper but most don't have the balls to actually put it on the road. But you do.
I can't wait to see it done.
I too can not wait to see it done.
Amazing work to both of you.
It looks awesome.
Looking pretty fucking awesome! Cant wait to see it in the sunshine. Great job guys.
The larger lace in the middle breaks it up nicely. cant wait to see the candy over it to soften/ blend it all together
WHO RULES?.....................obviously,YOU GUYS RULE,BITCH!!!!!!!!
Still amazed by the progress...
Looks amazing!!! And not as a dis, I was just re-reading some old custom car annuals and it said the average Watson full custom paint job takes 2-5 days! Crazy, huh?
They were hauling ass.
what is the material for the inside roof? where would you pick some of that up? the car is tits buy the way!!!!!
That thing is fucking sick. can't wait to see it done
Alex is fucking awesome..id like to meet him i talked to him on the phone when i ordered some metal flake the guy is really down to earth...
What color is the white on ur car man? i really like that is it a custom mix?
It's all PPG. The white is an Acura pearl white with about 6 kinds of flake over it. I'll have to check on the name of the blue.
That's gonna look badass at night.
Hahahaha...some of the observations on here are hilarious, good one...haha!
