I've ridden along with about every mod you did on your car. Get tickled at our views. Most of the time if I look right, your looking left but thats the fun of the internet and the cool factor of everyone has their own designing ways about them...
Ya, that looks great.
Kinda changing my taste in things Mike. Honestly there is nothing wrong with the silver on both of our cars.. Using a little difference concept in everything. Less but more. Know it don't or might now make any since but in trying to explain it its taking more of the extra's away, and using something else, A Paint design to makes something stand out.
I had a badge made for the vette. Cost 350 dollars for two... After 3 years you know i'm still working on that money market .. Thats what I call her. Bought it for 15000. Now have 55000 in her. Still far more hp than a ZR1 for half the price, and with the guys that play at the air strip only one car so far that will run her down and I eat him and keep him up to 150 but the roots won't hold a candle to his twin turbos on a viper over 150. He walks me then. Nitrous helps in the 100 to 150 range but its still a roots blower. Only so much boost you can run with those. I'm sitting on 10. We backed it down for cooler intake temps.
Adding the black back end on the vette just like our skys to, and two strips down either side of the supercharger hood... Can't be the same as the sky because the concept of the two cars are totally different, but will be close enough you can tell the owner was thinking about somewhat or something in his design.
Same with the Fountain Boat. I"ve left the outside alone and use a different concept and color matching to blend in but draw attention to the whole picture or program. Not sure i'm explaining it right but all the toys are headed that way. Catches me off guard and i'm more than likely the only one that knows where he's going but HEY,, I"m getting there.
You wanted to portray to me anyway,, that early years of racing or English race car look. You did great. Number on the side gave it its own personality and your white wall tires sealed the deal.
I like the high tech, not a HAY, look at me, but more a WOW,, what in gods name is in that thing look. Don't want it to be stand outish,, < (how you like that word. LOL) but more of a "THERE" look to it.
Dragster was repainted one solid color. Only the pin strip colors were use to change the look . Nothing wild.
Boost has creaped up to 16 on the sky. Still a wild little ride up to 90 so just turning her up a notch using the paint instead of adding anything.
Fountain back wind deflector is all in that same game.
You expect to see a car logo or race logo but these is only one Fountain and everyone knows its boats so the car won't say race with the top down but will be more of a sport, class ride with the added wood grain kit on the inside or something you could park beside the fountain for a classic look.
With having one car that has add on's using paint only other than the badge I wanted to do the same with the sky but no badge. (Hood and rear scoop and dropped) the sky is in the middle between fast and luxury, until someone pulls up enough to see the gauge pods on both.
Had a 500gt mustang back off and he was ridding on my left side back about the rear tire cause the gauge pod through him off. Could he of taking me. LOL. He could have killed me and the outside didn't slow him down. Close inspection he won't sure he wanted to get his feelings hurt when he seen the gauge pod and if you have learned anything about me in the past 4 years, I won that war laughing without firing a shot. ............... After he turned off and was gone...lol
Did go a little wild on the dodge 3500 but its always hooked to something so its never in question. You know truck drivers. We like lights, and I have fun messing with everything. GF calls it, putting the Luke , to it. LOL
No plate on mine. Just paint.
Colors on the race trailer match the boat. I like that.
Mike,, I think the best way to say it,, I like everything color matched perfect. Thats the most important thing to me and to much or to little makes all the difference. Lot of folks have super nice cars then kill them by adding to much. Once you make a car busy looking to me, the cool factor of the car is gone. Jap cars come to mind or all these stick ones that advance sells that folks have started making a habit of buying and putting on their cars. Has to be right in the middle. LOL. The lines have to be right, and the look has to be there but not stand out. It can be bold, but now wild and for god sake, not busy. LOL Thats the look I like and where i'm going with painting the sky.
PS Helmet is being wrapped as we speak. I have aircondition on the rail so love the helmet. Hate the color. Color can be changed..
