color combo, good or no good

I just added some more pics in my journal and was just wondering what you guys thought of the car, mainly the color combo and stripe, some around here don't like and I was just wondering what you guys thought. all thoughts are welcome, the good, bad or ugly, I can take it. I'm not looking for praise or anything like that I just want opinions from people that I respect.

It's hard to tell from the pictures, the true colors never come through on a computer monitor, but I think it looks great. Plus, it will look different in sunlight. If you think it looks good, then it is good.

I think the stripe and flame detail look awsome.

I was thinking of two tone black and red for the Mustang, but now that's taken

I like the concept a lot. The orange stipe might benefit from some pinstripping to pop it more. Perhaps a lime green or electric blue.

Thanks guys, again I'm not looking for praise, I just wanted some opinions, good or bad. Steve ( the car owner ) likes it and I like it and thats what matters most. After all the hard work to paint this thing two tone we had to see what people thought.
Arrowhead, don't let me stop you from painting that Mustang two tone, do it, if you need help deciding call me.
Homebrew, you and I think alot alike, that is what I had planned from the beginning, but now I'm not sure, going to wait till the car is all together.

Are you kidding, that looks like crap, I would be embarassed to be seen in it!

Just kidding, no, it looks very good. Of course, seeing it out of the shop from a distance may be a different story. But I have seen similar jobs on similar cars and they do look very good.

I too think it would look good with pin striping around the stripe. It would really separate the colors but overall I think it looks great. I would love to do a black on top two tone on my rambler but can't figure out how or where to break up the two colors because of the body lines.

Great looking ride and nice work.

Here's a couple of possibilities from the carnut site.

A fellow just posted a pic of a 58-60 Rambler wagon with 56 BelAir trim air brushed on the side (. With that big slab side you could airbrush any kind of trim on, or use the real thing if you're good at cutting and polishing stainless! The thread with the photos: A couple of interesting rides at the Goodguys show.

in all honesty, that orange stripe in the middle walks a thin line between flashy in a good way and gaudy. if i could see it in person i could tell you which side of the line it's on, but knowing that camera colors are always a little off, i couldn't tell you if i like it or not.

Thanks for the pics farna and home brew. One of the reasons the color separation works on those cars is they still have a roof rail. I shaved mine off and blended all the body seams. I couldn't afford to pay someone to air brush trim on mine besides, I want to do all the paint myself.
