OK The artist is finally ready to start on the flames tonight. Car has been completely sanded down! and Re-primed and painted! Also already has two coates of clear, and then sanded off the glossy bits. After the art work is done, we plan on about four more coates of Clear! I think this time it will be perfect!
Go to this link to see it's progress, and select 2974.

Are you going with the same flame job?No, The flames will go all the way back to the rear quarter panel this time, and yes, I shaved the door handles. No not the same flames this time, a little less this time. Only one snake this time on the hood, buit it promisses to be better than the last time!:doubt:

So I guess that will never touch my car! I hope to get the car back Friday, and then it goes into storage, on my way to new York!

I wonder why he said that B/C that is pretty much standard on all exotics...If it good for them its good for me...

1. The paint is too fresh(if you do decide to cover it wait at least 3 or 4 months)
2. The painter is assuming the car is a show car... and you do not do that to show paint jobs!!!(it will cost points in competition)
3. It does diminish the impact of an obviously SPECTACULAR AND TRUELY STUNNING paint job!!!
4. There is some variation in quality available in the paint protection market... some look great some don't.

TOTAL FREAKING HOME RUN!!!

Chuck..

You have a MONSTER ON YOUR HANDS!!!

I'm not big on the custom scene... but I have to tell you those are some of the most tastefully done, beautiful, life like, and yet somewhat subtle GHOST FLAMES I HAVE EVER SEEN!!! :hail: :hail: :hail: :hail:
