    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.

    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.

    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.

    The larger lace in the middle breaks it up nicely. cant wait to see the candy over it to soften/ blend it all together

    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.
