Fire On The Side

I just got done putting some simple flames on the side of the 55. It needed something to break it up. The truck still needs to be cleared coated and then the flames will get outlined in a purple, I think, I'm not sure. What do you think?

OH sweet! Y-Block?

I say an orange to red or visa versa outline but wait for the pros, tonight to advise.
Motor cycle painters can look at this and make it talk to you.

Barry, I wish it was a 312 with 3 deuces go to my pic album and somewhere in there you'll see a 350 TPI and some of my build up.

Cool beans man.
It need's something loud to set it off for sure. It's like a center piece and will command attention.Lime Green,Lemon Yellow or something weird like that.Yeah,I know,Sounds crazy,BUT,
It's REALLY screwy how the SICKEST colors make for KILLER stripes.

Man, I figured MRClean would look at this and have an idea that would make this thing talk to you.
Where are you James????

That is a nice looking paint job so far well done! I was thinking pink no really pink goes pretty good I think. The lime green would look good, Even white looks pretty cool. I tried a few colours and I liked the lighter colours.

If I was more hi-tech on this 'puter I could show you exactly what I mean here, but let's try it by verbage instead...


I really like the lime green idea, but lemon yellow would work and not be so "HOLY S#IT" in appearence. Try doing a "tribal" type stripe around your flames. What I mean by that is to use a fuzzy looking or a series of long random "x's" instaed of a steady even line as a border. Drag em out and go into the flames some and into the body color some. The look will jump up and talk to all that see it. Someone started this years ago prolly cuz they couldn't steady-line stripe, but the final look is pretty kool. Where your flames are lean at the front keep it smaller, gradually go bigger as you get to the end to define the work. Does this make any sense to any of ya's?

That would be Craig Fraiser.
And your right Highlander, He couldn't stripe for shemp in the beginning and that's exactly what he did.People liked it and it's his signature now.
Go figure, I screw up and it look's like crap and HE does and it makes gob's of cash.
It's just random slash's drug down,along,outside the flame edge.
He does this in his video Cheap Tricks 3 I believe.

its funny how a simple stripe color can change the look of the whole paintjob. sometimes i will pick a color thinking this will look good and once i get it on i'm like holy crap that looks horrible. if you want a more "loud" look then yelllow will be nice or a dark maroon. if you want something more classy then mix up some silver and black to make a dark charcoal color and put alot of blue in it. makes a nice dark steel blue.

For what its worth I'd go with a more subtle look. The pink and lime green scream "'80's" to me. I really like the layout and the color of the flames the way they are. I think mrcleanr6's steel blue suggestion is the way to go.

a couple other ideas for a more clean look would be a dark turquoise or you might think i'm crazy but even a med to dark olive green. i do like lime green on alot of things but with the color of the truck i might stay away from that, hard to tell...i would need to actually see it. like i said, we can all give you ideas but what you really need to do is take all the colors you like and put about a 2 - 3" line on the edge of the flames in each color then stand back and take a good look. as soon as i put it on this is assuming that everything has been clearcoated.

Hey guys thanks for the complements on the design of my flames, I didn't want anything to big, the truck just had to be broke up a little. all you guys have come up with some good ideas for the border. Ratchet my daughter was die hard for purple until you did the green, I don't know about the tribal edge, I would have to see it do on something first. I think mrclean has hit on the way to go with the steel blue, I do like that idea. Well what I'm going to do is get this thing buffed out, I've been not feeling to good for the last two three days, and then try some of your suggestions along with mine and see what we come up with and then I'll post the finished truck. Thanks.
