Looking for some help

I'm looking for some help with this 55 Desoto FireDome.
I'm torn between wide whites with moon caps or T/A's on Torque thrusts, Solid body color (nissan sunrise gold, or something like that) or the gold with a black top.




I'll take some better pic's tomorrow. Just got it home last Sunday.

Amen,
Reverend Colin

Have mercy on modems!

Please! Don't make 'em inline images; just attachments. It's a trivial inconvenience for someone to click on the thumbnail to see the image full size. It's a major inconvenience for dial-up users to have to download every full size image just to read the thread.
Thanks!

Would this help? I selected just the top and the body, thinking you could use those as masks or something.

Damn it! I missed all the fun tonight!! ARRRGGGH damn work!! Its always like a party in this thread when Im at work, but when I get home and get online, its like everybody has a hangover from the party! oh well, Ill see what I can do with that wagon. and rlackey's car...and nightrider's caddy.

EDIT: on that wagon, you said rat rod. Did you want real rat rod, or more of the new fad type rat rod?

Thanks for the help. Great PIC's. Sorry for leaving the bigger pic to begin with. Do people still have dial up? The "tangerine looking candy" is what I'm going for. Thought I'd shoot it with just the base coat and see if I like it on something this big.

Here's the type of disc I was thinking about. I think I have it small enough: I'm planning on the red rims and red and white interior. Naugahyde of course
