having stripes ghost painted update painting pics inside
 
anyone have any examples of ghost painting pics , I'm having my rally stripes done and my painter needs some examples cause I cant seem to find any I have a SIM and want gray or silver stripes ghost painted . Isn't it usually just a shade darker than the hood or does it fade as you go up or down the hood also

update My car is being painted now here are some pictures for you to check out

i'm pretty sure "ghost" is just straight up pearl.

Not sure if this is what you are talking about but this is an example of the pearl rally stripes on IOM. It looks sharp!

ddunerider 08-25-2009 02:57 PM

I wanted to do that too i have seen this IOM car long time ago and loved it.What color is your car going to be?

Abygale 08-25-2009 02:59 PM

You are welcome! If I do rally stripes I'll go with pearl like this gentlemen did. It just looks sharp.

glambert1 08-25-2009 04:33 PM

well I would go with a darker silver color stripe on top of the SIM probably . I want it to look like the stripe is under a lot of layers of clearcoat so its just comes through , I will post pics having it done next week

Jferrell88 08-25-2009 06:25 PM

i thoguht about this, I think it would look really good on black, i wanted stripes but i wanted something different

ddunerider 08-25-2009 10:14 PM

Nice cant wait to see it. :thumbsup:

Jericho 08-26-2009 07:27 AM

glambert1 08-26-2009 09:15 AM

wont be having it done until next tuesday

y2k10camaross 08-27-2009 10:27 AM

Can anyone explain in non-technical terms what "ghost painting" (stripes) is. It really looks so good! Thanks.

it's basically just pearl.

tnspd 08-27-2009 08:39 PM

If the paitning is done correctly, what you end up with are stripes that unless you are looking for them you basically would not know they are there, hence "Ghost Stripes"

firstmate 08-27-2009 08:59 PM

I love that idea... I would like spears that are sort of like that. But wonder if the pearl would look good on black. Is there a silverish type of pearl paint like that I wonder? Does anyone know?

glambert1 08-27-2009 09:18 PM

you can make pearl with any color I think , They use mica in the paint instead of whatever they use in metallic. I'm leaning toward white pearl faded in from windshield to the front bumper or I'll just play it safe and use 1 shade darker silver to fade in with pearl finish My ar is SIM how do you guys think that would look

GJG 08-27-2009 09:24 PM

sun light will bring them out

not a real good pic but these are on my bike.....same color (candy apple ghost) is going on the 2ss....

Do you think that this type of paint request could be done at any paint shop?

GJG, you are in Texas, any chance it is in or around Houston?

Basically any collision shop should be able to do this , thats where I'm going some may have better artists than others to make it something special. I've decided on antique pearl whits faded in from front to back , white toward the bumper and faded away back to silver toward the windshield

If your painter doesn't know what ghost stripes are and needs a picture to look at to see what they are, they odds are will have no idea how to correctly paint them. This would be a red flag for me and I would suggest getting it done elsewhere. BTW those pearl stripes pictured above are NOT ghost stripes.

firstmate 08-28-2009 06:42 PM

Hmmm... Ok, do you know where there are pictures of what real/true ghost stripes do look like?

Thanks...

hmmm, I see your point , I am bringing it in monday and we will talk and he's gunna lay it all out for me , I think ,or I hope that he was kinda confused by me because I kept giving him different ideas when I went in and he wanted to make sure he knew exactly what I wanted. He already did another camaro stripes and they turned out good
