See Chopper1 that is what I'm saying. That looks good, it's something a little different. It's not your basic sad full frontal yellow/orange/red combo flame job. I love the little deep red touch, that is a flame job I can respect. Even though it's small it works far better than any full frontal job I've seen.

I'm glad you like them. I wanted something that was more subtle than ostentatious and it totally changed the appearance of the car.

The color of my interior is burgandy, so the flames were painted with candy burgandy and fade to candy apple red.

I like the traditional look for flames. Especially on a black car, but they have to follow the lines and not be over done. Such as the California Kid. These fit the car.

For those that think the flames are too conventional and want something with a bit more thought---Got a shot of this one at a show in Boerne (pronounced bernie) Texas a couple of years ago.

I thought it was pretty cool-----not tacked on at all.

I like the colors, but it seems to over power the car.

Fred--I can appreciate your thoughts.
Hard to tell in this pic
The car went from bright white to pitch black--front to rear----and virtually every possible color in between.

overpowering, yes------everyday flames, HELL NO
it was a pleasure to see in a sea of traditional flames though

Flames can be over done but if done right I think they look nice. Here is a example of the flames that I like.
