I'm considering these for Hemi Healey. Silver-grey pearl on a jet-black car. Subtle/tastefull ? Silver-grey is to blend with the wheel centers. Onward, roverman.

wait till you get the car built to worry about paint. You'll do changes along the way that may change the character of the car. I was thinking about ghost flames early on, but decided they didn't fit as I got closer to that stage.

Thanks Rob, the problem with two heads,(Gemini), their always pointing me in different directions, lol. Car will remain black primer, until I'm positive it's sorted out. Cheers, roverman.

With "Doug's" 3" electric cut-outs venting through the Gullwing side vents, I must be carefull not to make "wrinkle finish". Zoom Zoom, roverman

OOOO!!!
35 years ago I wanted to do flames on my big Healey. All the car guys talked me out of it. Being 17-years-old I bowed to the old guys (maybe in their 20s). I wish I hadn't. I've always wondered what that would have turned out to be, and I'm still damn good with an airbrush . . .

Art,

Sold the AH after I got married to pay off my college loan. :-(

Picture of the sacrifice with the reward leaning against her. :-)

As they say, "Good trade."

Such a thing as flames in "body paint" ? How about glow-in-the-dark Phantom flames ? I'm done now. Onward, roverman.
