Wasup G?

John, I had one of those in my front yard. Yep, they crack and fall, its what them overgrown bushes do. Of course mine fell on my friend's truck long ago. Seems like it thundered all last night but rained little here.

This is the latest Cat rendering I made. When they were thinking grey. I am hoping to lose the fender ornaments. Like so-

That sure makes a pretty car. I am not normally a fan of black wheels but with that gray paint and the chrome rims it really looks good.

Are your renderings for your own intertainment or are they being relayed back to the owner?

John

You just never know about color combos, at least I don't by comparison to the boss. He has a knack for that. Its not a look I'd imagine working on that era of car but... did find the result of the grey edit handsome. Trim treatment is everything when theres that much. Black centered wheels have always polarized car guys, love or hate em. I sit on the fence leaning toward the positive side about them. If the car can follow the look that goes with them, I can dig'um. Really best on just neutral colors and not white, IMO.

I did the edits on me, at home. For fun and out of curiosity plus a want to practice the pictures thing. Nice ones cost a bundle, crap ones are done for too cheap. I prefer a semi-realistic background because cars don't drive on studio backdrops. Perhaps that could be my unique feature if doing them were to lead to some freelance renderings or an added in house service at work.

I did do other smaller renderings on a side view with trim options and one was black but whether the customer saw them could be a don't tell don't pay deal or a first ones on the house deal. Could be we are both just testing the water. Boss recieved all of them that I was happy with and if they even served just as a help to him in guiding the customer, my effort was worthwhile in my mind. They want to see colors, I wanted to play kustomizer and propose red-hot body mods. You want one done? Can't grab if you don't reach, br'er. Ask. It has crossed my mind to do so without your consent.

Pugsy's needs more work. I dig the B post angle on his ancient mopar.

I'll post some others later. I liked the dark red one. Car happens to look great in orange if you can believe that. A sorta darkish firey pearl job, picture it. I don't think I rendered one that way but saw it during the doing of that.

The wheels in grey look so much better than black. Can you tell I'm not on the fence at all when it comes to black rims? Can't stand em.


That car looks good in a lot of colors, mine, not so much. I find all car's shapes have colors that make them look good horrid.


That's why your pic chopping is such a valuable tool.

Yeah black wheels are a hanging offense on the Grand Prix forum. But now don't get me started on Pontiac or Chevy Rally wheels. Or Gymkhana wheels. Which is worse, black wheels or body color wheels? I do like a bright center and rim with grey if its darkish. Like the Bullitt wheels on my GTP, those go with just about anything.

Pugsy I think you're right... can't put a finger on why but some bodies look best in certain hues. My thing is everything should have gobs of mica in it. I just can't imagine why everyone doesn't want pearl in everything.

Concur!

I heard Cat guy changed wheel choice so none of the renderings are correct. Black centers he was pretty keen on. Trouble is, until the body is all fitted, tubbed, and smoothed out in primer... you can't know where the have-to's end and the want-to's begin. Moneywise. So from next week forward, mod ideas, trim choices, colors and all that can be tossed about more freely.

Speaking of which, Pugsy I had a thought about a look for yours. I sense that you'd like pretty much traditional fare like seen at local street rod shows more so than Ridler contender wanna-be style... so I wondered how this might grab you and perhaps keep cost down. Now that you have a fully loaded luxury Camino.

Early sixties salt flats style.

You could even take it there some year and earn your "legit" merit badge, you have the hardware. If theres still salt by then. Imagine the Pugsy Special, caked with salt in a big pic for your work or play space. Misty mountains in the distance... a flattie car blurring past, etc. My mental picture is wicked to me but may be way off of your obviously refined taste. That chassis woulda been the shiz for salt runs. Hmm.

I better stop and mow.

Found some shiny on a sedan and may have stumbled onto how to do red. Still a mighty rough edit but that rod does have something goin on.



Oh yeah, I think I used the sedan roofline just scooted it forward. Wierd.

Wow, now we're looking good. That's the look, just a basic rod that is crisp and clean looking.


I'm thinking of doing a bit (lot) of metal work on the doors to make one piece windows.


No stainless moldings around the glass. That side molding is looking interesting though.

Isn't the side molding like what it had? I just left it on from the sedan.

Overlaying yours on the sedan revealed how much you shortened the hood. Cool.

Can def ditch the window chrome and wings.

Study that roofline. It takes away some rear headroom because the coupe roof is more boxy at rear. I was just doing the easiest thing and slid the sedan roof rear forward to where the coupe roof starts, on the belt line. For me, it seems to take a lot of the stodgy uprightness away. Like the hood does. I dig the profile much more this way.

Yes. The plan is to cut out the whole window frame and drop it as low as possible. Then, cut the roof to lay it down. Your head doesn't go anywhere near that boxy part.


Here's a pic chopped to that exactly. Great minds must think alike, ha.......

Original plan was for no side moldings. All sold off already.
