Hotrod..you know i like being different also..My 63 vette was Candy Red Metal Flake..not many people around that can lay that kind of paint on a car like it suppose to be..Good luck finding someone in your area..whomever you get do yourself a favor and see some of their work beforehand.

how close are you ?

when looking for something I like I just browse painter/painter designer websites usually find something I like on several different cars then try to make it my own.

i'm same way..don't want a plain-jane paint job.i want my car too be first thing you see in the middle of a car show/pits or where ever it my be..i do my own painting just run out of ideals for paint designs..still doing one off's on bikes i paint but some reason car is kicking my butt trying too come up with something..
not a lot done since last pic post of it.i did get the old junk cage cut out and new cage in car now.health slows me down and the cash flow isn't good on disabilty income.but i'll keep swinging at it and she'll get done.shooting for another year i'm hopping if all goes good.
how's vette doing?did i read on here that you got the nova back?

yes;;i've been doing that also;;i'm finding out i like a lot of them so still confused on what one i like best..i do my own painting but i don't know how too air-brush and most of the paint jobs i like requares air-brush work;;i'm very attracted to the ripped metal look but there again it looks like you need to be able to air-brush to get the right look;;

where;i found someone.jay moody from arz. has had many cars he has painted or did the paint designs for in the magazines.we've talked serval times on e-mails about my likes and dislikes and he even wanted me to call him so he can get a better feeling of what type person i am and where i'm headined with my car as to what would work best on it..i feel real good i'm going to get a exciting paint design from him.he does servial rough drawings of ideals for me to look at.i pick out the one i like best and then we talk about things i like and maybe don't like and want differant.once that is done he does the full color lay-out drawing for painter[me]to follow and dueing the full painting deal he is there if i'm running into something i need help on laying out on car..i'm excited to see what we end up with..i feel we both are on same page as to what i want the car to look like and what we feel the car needs to leave that striking moment when a person first sees the car;;wish us luck.one step closer to fininshing car.
