1930u photoshop paint concepts

Hi all,

I can't believe the talent that exists on this forum. Here are picks of my 30 Plymouth series u project. I'm re-creating an old car from my home town. It was candy apple red with red windows.

I can paint fine but I can't seem to settle on wether to do a one or multi color paint scheme. My gut says go with a deep rich candy red probably a gold base then highlight the reveal areas with a lighter or darker candy red with some gold leaf or pin stripping. Bottomline I have no artistic talent at all.

I'm looking for ideals. All help and comments appreciated.

Thanks

I'm kinda partial to the silver base on candy apple, but the gold would be real nice. Is there any exhaust "side, rear", hood or no hood, running boards and so on ??

I agree silver base is cool to for a brighter candy red. Possibly with silver leaf highlights on the reveal.

This will be an open car no hood with a blown 392 hemi. The exhaust will be chrome or stainless header sidepipes Large 5" tubes.

I have attached a few more pics.

Thanks!

Looks good. But before you paint it don't you want to take a little off the top first?

Thought about it Rodder but I like the stock profile. I hope to get it done someday.
