Slooowwwly doing body mods in small steps now. Got vinyl inserts for the bowties, added SS emblems on the sides and last night I painted the tail light bezels charcoal metallic gray. The color on the lid of the can looked darker than they turned out though so I may go darker still.

Yes I am. I have an MPD-1 spoiler on order and when that arrives I'm going to get Sunoco yellow hood spears but as outlines instead of a solid fill, and Probably a stripe across the top of the spoiler. I'm looking at some other ideas too but I'm being very cautious on what I do so I don't screw up the beauty of this car.

I am considering going with a stripe color that is very close to IBM that tapers off at the top of the cowl into a ghost flame. Something nice and subtle but still noticable when you look at it close. What do you guys / gals think?

Ok I'm tearing my hair out here. I'm trying to find the post with the pics of the IBM infront of that large Coke sign. The sign is painted on the side of the building and the car is parked at the curb. I've looked through every page of this thread because I thought it was here. Does anyone know where they are?

Thanks

P.S. Love the wheels Doc

Could be interesting if done right. Here's a couple images of methane flames:

This would be an interesting effect if you start the bright blue at the front and have it "flame out" at the end near the windshield:

This one has some great possibilities if you have a really talented painter:

i get ya, i like the clean solid look myself... looking as how you are going to get some paint done anyways sunoco yellow bow ties (very subtle changes from the gold but chevrolet people would notice) or a script under the spoiler like on the veteran 1 car.... say something like ~DOC~...

P.S. i met you and saw your car at the meet we had at the rim manufacturer a couple months back, your car has got a great stance!

Thanks for the compliments; and nice meeting you

I'm thinking of maybe having "Blue Angel" in Sunoco yellow on the side above the CAMARO letters in the script they use on the planes. Actually I should do a photoshop of the spears and lettering on one of these new pictures to give you an idea.

Yeah that's what I'm thinking too for the spoiler edge. Hmmm... interesting idea on the back of the spoiler. Once mine arrives and I get it installed I'll take some pics and play around with that idea.

Here's what I'm toying with for stripe ideas for the front; hood spears, lower front grill, 5% tint on turn signal lenses. I'm definitely going to do the hood spears; not sure yet on the grill stripe.

Doc it's obvious from the pic of the jet that you need to paint the side mirrors yellow.

Have you photoshopped a version with a thin stripe down the top of the side?

Yeah I've thought about a yellow stripe around the edge of the mirror. I'm also considering a stripe of some kind from the side mirror towards the back of the car to approximate the top of the Blue Angel plane but I haven't come up with one yet that I'm happy with.

I keep playing around with ideas though.
