The way ghost fllames were explained to me:

Lay down your base and then one coat of clear. Then lay out your flames and mask. Add pearl of choice to your base then shoot your flames. Unmask, let dry, sccotch brite, then clear overall. The reason for one coat of clear over the base before the flames is to prevent the base from pulling up with the masking tape if there happens to be a problem.

Dewey,
I will save those other pictures you posted to my computer and I will see what I can come up with later. It may take me a day or so, but I will see what I can get it to look like.
And I see exactly what your saying with the gold. Ill try and recolor the flames. That color in B is how the picture I took of flames was originally and I left it that way. And it is a little bit tricker to get the flames to look right on the fenders in the photoshop, but I bet I can come up with something.

Brad,

No great rush. I probably won't undertake this project until the end of the summer anyhow so I've got plenty of time to mull over ideas and come up with a final concept. From my little knowledge of photoshop I would think that curving the flames over the fenders would be quite a challenge. So My hat's off to you if you can do it.

Alright, I changed up the ghost flame design a bit. And got a goldish color going into the red. I also added flames on the fenders, the fenders came out good on 2 of the pics, but one of them I don't think they turned out as well.

Brad,

You're really getting my excitement level up a few notches. I was originally concerned that flames might look way out of place on this particular vehicle. But I'm starting to see how they could be blended into the body lines and have a really nice effect.

Aww shucks

Yeah, I was kinda worried that it may have turned out wrong. But I would say that is some of my best work on photoshop yet.
Im glad you like it.

flame designs

(i dunno if it was already said but..) if i were you i would go with some ghost flames... you got a great rod there and it would kind of spoil it if the first thing you saw were these HUGE and BRIGHT flames... it would look better if u saw the flames only if u really paid close attention to the paint job, but its ur decision just adding my two cents...
