I've been sporting the dirt and rust color combo on my frame.

If your going to go through all the work, I would decide on a color for the body first so you can pick colors that go well with each other.

frame

nothing is cooler than a clean glossy frame

hmm who said green and brown... are you antagonizing me? my 944 is brown inside and out and i opted for a deep dark metallic green for the paint. ( with phosperous glow in the dark blue ghost flames )

i dont know how long after i paint it i will be able to take that brown before i hack it out for black.

i heard something about orange and blue..
that sounds good.

dont you think if you use the silver color it would look too much like metal and noone would be able to tell you went thru all the trouble to paint it?
black.. on the body its great but on the chassis its normal ..

get crazy - go pink on the frame and canary yellow on the body.
ha ha i had a pink car once it was wack

Silver stuff

I have used that particular material on things like truck racks and such and it looked good and held up fairly well to some rough use..kinda hard to describe how it looks except to say it produces a hammered look and it is a decent rust preventative..

I do need to paint as I am doing the car from scratch and need to do something to slow down the rust a bit so why not pick out some sort of color scheme from the get go and just paint as I go..

I am planning on using industrial enamel to paint the car as I have used that sort of thing before with some good results and that is keeping with the theme and goal of a affordable end result..

This has been a big help to me to get some ideas on colors to use on the car..

Thanks to everyone..

Paint everything Chevy orange, whether it's a Chevy or not, and for a nice effect, do purple polkadots on every other piece.

;-)


If i could do polka-dots without having it dripping down, i'd do my engine block over with them...

;-)

People would ask why, and I'd say cuz that's a SICK engine!!
