I also like the lace, but where would you get lace scale enough to look good on a model?

I say Pearl green up top and silver along the bottom half.

All of the above. It's a lowrider.

And heavy flake, like a bowling ball or a bass boat

I thought of those colours too.

I think the low rider thing is so people can get it silly low when parked then raise it to drive, it's kinda funny to see a car dancin' too, well it makes me smile but i'm a bit strange

i like them mostly for the paint work. they are just rolling works of art the fact most are done on vintage automobiles is a bonus. also works of art in my mind.

so thats twice the artwork in one car lol.

looks like 2 tone its gonna be. gonna come up with a few color sketches over the weekend.

What about ghost flames? I think a nice red metal flake would look good on the top.

red and black aren't too bad together



Or even yellow and black



or something like this

personally i'm not a fan of Foose's paint designs. 90% of them just don't appeal to me.

but, i certainly appreciate the input and ideas! keep 'em coming.

All these color combos mentioned aboved look great with chrome wheels.

For me two tone is 2 HotRodish ...

With the gold wires root beer brown with gold flake is a perfect combo & your painted ladies always look killer.
Nuff Said
I'm still kicking myself in the arse for passing on a 65 impala wagon in AZ with the same color combo & hydros but they didn't reinforce the frame or the axle & the owner was obviously switch happy
