Color/paint ideas
« on: June 25, 2013 9:01 PM »

Just looking for something different. Just looking for some thoughts and ideas you may have. Im really thinking of something with flake in it. Either Gold, Ivory or Copper. For those that may not know the car, here it is in its current state...

Don't have enough skills to Photoshop anything but a Watson style paint job would look killer on a bullet nose in my opinion...

On one of those build shows on TV, I saw an episode where they copper plated the bright work and the rims, I thought it was pretty damn cool, I wanted to try and do that on the f100 with black paint, johnny keeps talking me out of liking that idea, but even with the extra upkeep, the plating would really set it off more than paint, even on the bullet nose if you contrasted the electroplating against the chromebetween the outer ring and center.
