I haven't for gotten about the strippers delight but had another brain storm, turning a 1950 Ford into a custom aztec warrior complete with stone work pyramids and custom interior to look like stone work just like my (1941 chevy) hell train build i just finished.

got the doors opened and ready to frame....

trying out something new for me anyway, skinning the top layer off of foam core to use for interior panels that i can carve intricate aztec designs in the door panels, dash, and roof. The bed will have a pyramid and other aztec design/shapes in it.

so here goes, will try to keep up work on the strippers delight as well, but will see what happens.

actually doesn't house of color have a color that name? would love to use house of color just don't know where to buy it, was thinking of using the one coat laquers and using bronze one, inca, and pure gold in a tribal type paint scheme, just not sure how that would work for patterns or i was thinking using the gold metal flake from testors under the lime gold as patterns in the paint. just throwing some ideas i have had out there.

toying with the idea of lake pipes, but not sure if that would fit the overall theme...
