Thanks... But you don't know how many times I went into my shop, And said I can't wait to see it in primer... When you spray the first coat of primer and step back and see it...WOW !!! Even more so when it is built right out of you head... Then you say...DID I DO THAT !!!!

I have it posted on about five sites.. And to hear the feed back...
Well !!!! It sure let's you know it wasn't a waste of time..... I have done a lot of cars,, But my heart is really into this one...

It's really killing me that I can't just jump on it and get it done.. (money)

But I will wait as long as it takes to get it done...And will keep picking at it one piece at a time..

I ran out of primer.. So I will have to wait a while... I do have to say this much... If your not using Barryk's primer.... You just don't know what your missing.... Thanks.Mr Barry for making a great product...

I'm proud to have it on my car !!!!

Have you thought about the final color(s) yet? I know that is not the next step, but I was curious.

I'm really leaning towards a big flake green so far...

Something like this... But big flakes...That's what I'm thinking so far..
I'm even thinking of going with these tires and wheel's..

These are all just things I will throw on the table for "input".

Green will set you apart from the crowd... and certainly will give the impact that the car deserves. In those days they didn't usually go for dark shades, but I can see by your examples that you are looking at a light-bright shade.

You might think about using gold in the lettering or graphics, since that is associated with royalty.

If you airbrush in any "jewels"... like on those diamond shapes... the green would suggest they be emeralds... but art class would teach that they would be rubies, since red is the natural compliment for green. :-)

Back in 1995 my Chevy LUV was Hot Pink.... There wasn't many Hot Pink cars or trucks back in 1995.... But That truck won so many awards it isn't funny... I did take 1 place in the street Machine Class at the World Of Wheels in 1995 in New Orleans.. And this was the first show it hit... They did a big over head shot of the whole World Of Wheels.. And BAM !!!! There it was !!!!

Me and SpeedyDeedy built this truck in 4 and a half months..(everyday)

Here's a shot of that truck..
