Thank you for that :D An old school being lowered= fine. Muscled up=fine. Customized=fine. Raised up and put on rediculous sized wheels=NOOOOOOOOOOO :blink:

 

Like that paint color! Will that be over a white or silver base?

LOL, yeah I just don't understand "Donks"

 

 

As far as the paint color goes, I will be using fluorescent (neon) Orange as a base coat,

 

then followed by 2-3 light coats of "Inca Gold Metallic" (by folk art)

 

This should give me a nice pearl look to my paint, (I hope)

 

 

Thanks for checking it out

You tube..... that explains it... I was looking at this while at work, and for some reason the proxy server I use to "surf" at work has recently blocked access to youtube, espn, imdb,etc...  

 

Any who....   that does look stunning! There's just something about pearl orange...

You shouldn't have to do anything to see the embedded player, if you can't then it's probably your browser or ad blocker or network blocking it.

Hey whats up guys, so this project have been on the back burner for a few weeks (while I've been trying to finish other models)

 

So here are some photos that show the car with clear coat on it, and some wheels I was trying out for fun (still not sure what the stance should be for this car yet)
