For the drawing, Im going with a 3/4 that way you can see all the body lines better and get a better look at the interior. Here what I got so far, this pic is with a cameraphone. I drew it with the top intact, so I could get the body lines in line without the rest of the car looking goofy. Will this do for the background?

Fine looking sketch!

Not having any free-hand artistic ability, I used some filters in gimp to change that sundowner.JPG into mostly lines. Contrast bumped up, then the cartoon filter used, then the photocopy filter.

Sweet looking camino Ron, I didn't know you had one, when did you get it?
Grouch, Thanks for the compliment bro. This is the first time Ive drawn anything in about 3 years, well except for the little flames and stick figures that are covering all my class notes. Maybe in the new forum I could give advice for sketching projects.
Nightfire, That photoshop is WICKED!! That is a great idea, flat black with silver flames down the side. I don't know about lowering it that much though, not because of the tires rubbing, but because of my driving habits! I did have a cool idea though, since Im still looking for ideas for a paint job, and my truck is still in primer. I might go and buy me a airbrush and try my hand at airbrushing. And if I don't like it, I just sand it down some and spray on a little more primer.

It has been around for years.It is actually owned by my parents,but I am the one who drives it.Other than that it sits outside. We are going to begin a frame off on it this winter. I have been told I have free reign on it. The history of the ElCamino is as follows. Bought as a 1 owner car in 1986.Car was originally sold in Miami,where my step dad bought it when he worked for Eastern Airlines as a mechanic.It came up here when Eastern went under and he took a job at UPS.The ElCamino is an 85 SS. It came with the bucket/console interior and an SS badging on the dash. The lower door panels had SuperSport script up until 5 years ago when it was repainted.The color scheme is how it rolled off the assembely line.The front end is factory,I think the rails were added but not sure.It used to have a tanneau cover on the bed,but it was shredded in "The Great Cherry Picker Incident" of '93.The fender is clappped out because it is a non GM certified replacement.See that Camaor Z wheel,it came off as I was pulling away from a stop light.The studs sheared off,from lack of the correct spacer plate,that means NONE. We got that straightened out. The interior is grey,the engine was a computer controlled smog engine 305.That has been replaced with a GM Goodwrench 350,newer block with the one piece rear main. It is a low HP 350.When we remove the body,which should be a pain,I am going through the engine.I do not know if it will stay standard bore or not,but most likely will.It has a damged R/T rear quarter where the RV made contact with it while backing up the driveway from Indy last year in the black of night.It can be knocked out though as it is a large area with no creases in it.

Rechroming that ton of grill and bumper might not be such a bad idea after all. Man, you don't know how much I needed that pick-me-up. Seeing the way the car *could* be instead of how it's sitting now helps get through the delays.

Thanks!

That second one is starting to resemble an old Studebaker Golden Hawk! Even the catfish mouth is starting to look good. Good thing I'm not real tall, though.

How in the world did you re-chrome those? I can figure out the painting and chopping, etc., but everytime I try to do chrome it just turns out blotchy blue and white.

Attached is a side shot that I'm starting to tinker with. I've been trying out different wheels on it like you talked about. Gimp has a "measure" tool so I get the diameter of the existing wheel in pixels and then scale the new wheel image to fit that. None of them so far look good enough to let anybody see.

One more request. All black on the ElCamino,some Torque-Thrust II's ,and one with the Centerline Convos. Loose the rail on the bed too. I showed this to my step dad and he said he wanted it all black. The rim choice is up to me,so those are the two I think would set the thing off.He wants to raise the rear,I think squatting it would be better. He is from the air shock era. No super rush,just if ya are goofing off.Thanx guys.Ron Oh yeah,I forgot,put that sweet 4" cowl hood on it. I think it is too much,but he does not.


Man I want to get that program,my brother advised me against it because he said I will crash this thing or make it slow as a Yugo with a miss.

Try gimp on it. http://www.gimp.org
Completely free, mimics the functions of photoshop, and if it doesn't work out for you, you're not out a dime.

(I've tried photoshop and prefer gimp).

Here's a quickie for you in Microsoft Paint, I'll try to add color to it later with Gimp
