Okie Dokie....

So....here we go w/ the paint.

Remember, this is NOT finished as we are still planning on changing out the wheels and adding a few more cosmetic items. This is a work IN PROGRESS.

Next step...

Figure out what color the bowtie should be. I'm thinking blue to match the pin stripes. We were discussing SS emblems in front and back. But, I'm not sure if we can get those done to actually fit the front grill. We'll see....

For now, I think Tom is going to tape off the front bow tie with blue tape so we can get a feel.

Now...the car is CGM. I wanted the contrast of bright on the dark. So, on came the Silver Ice Metallic. I've always loved the blue (similar to the Henessey type car) but didn't want blue hockey's. I wanted silver. In fact, this paint job is the opposite of my wife's SUV...funny. Her's is silver w/ dark gray......love it.

So, we used Silver Ice Metallic on the hockey's and on the center stripe. I don't know if you can really see it yet, but there are two clear coats with blue pearl added to it. That way, we get the blue flake in the paint just like the CGM.

The blue (GM 08 - Wave Blue Effect Metallic) was used for the pin stripes. This will also help to bring out the blue flake in the CGM and SIM. The pins are 1/8th in width. Anyway...enough of the talking. Check them out and enjoy!

Oh..and ya'll think blue on the bow tie? Or, chrome....or blue SS's or chrome SS's...sheooot...I can't make up my mind.

IDEAS ARE WELCOME.

Oh...and picture #1 of the white Z28 (in disguise) was the inspiration behind this all...this is what I saw a year ago and what's been in my mind FOREVER....

I think the silver is a little too bright for all the dark accents on the car. The design looks amazing though.

Like I said, the design is great but the color in real life pictures doesnt look as good as the renderings.

The silver is too bright; needs to be toned down like the renderings you posted. Should be more of a dull aluminum color; you have an anodized silver look which (to my eye anyways) overwhelms the car. In fact the side stripe of the rendering looks almost like a soft platinum which I think would look better.

Hood stripe looks perfect other than being too bright. The size and shape is perfect.

Interesting idea of silvering out the back panel.

Bowtie. Take some black vinyl and try blacking it out; if you don't like it you can remove it but I think black would look better than blue or chrome. Chrome SS would look good on the front. Since you silvered out the back, not sure if chrome SS would stand out enough on the back.

Oh, and go with clear corners in the front instead of putting back the orange ones.

I don't know!!!

But, I do have to come up with a name. Something....shadow(y)? Something sleek and powerful.....

How about something mythological?

Hephaestus - god of fire and forge


tho really you should name it Caerus... the god of luck and opportunity.

cus you are one lucky sob...


after reading thru all this (cus I missed it while I was gone) there's only one post that really sums up my feelings on this Doug.
