Default Paint Ideas

I'm considering paint ideas for my 28 RPU. I know, I know...

Anyways, I ran across this Tudor that was painted with Hot Rod Flatz and then buffed out, kind of gives it an old time paint job feel. I'm thinking the "hand-rubbed lacquer and then ignored for 20 years" type of look would be pretty sweet on a nostalgia-style RPU on steelies. This is close. Thoughts?

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

I shot my Reo (see build) with Rustoleum maroon and it came out too shiny. So I sprayed satin clear over it. The clear was in spray bombs.

It does have the hand polished shine look to it. Not 100% shine, but in the nineties per cent. I like it, and the colour too.

Looks pretty darn good to me...
I have a hard time getting that much shine on my shiny paint jobs

Shiny paint only looks good on really straight metal to me. My Frankenstein body metal can only be rusty...I'm with Skip, we do what we want to do with no reserve!
