Pink huh...  Funny, my son suggested purple.  I don't want to have to compete with Priya's ride though.  I'm not worthy.

I'm sure you'd do just fine - go for it!

It would save you a lot of money if you keep the main body color the same. Nothing worse than opening the hood or doors and seeing the wrong color. That gold would look nice on the bottom.

Keeping close to the same is a great idea too.  Maybe adding something on the hood/roof.  matching racing stripes?!?! ::)

Here is what the one I saw looked like...



I wish I had saved the real picture, it was honestly the best looking wagon I've seen.

Maybe get one of those AMX hood decals or the Jeep hood decal that says Eagle on it. It was gold I believe and you could paint the bottom to match

This is how I am going to paint the 81 2 door sedan but it will have the black landau vinyl top instead of the black louvers that the SX4 had. Should look sweet!

Wood Vinyl the whole thing! :) You could do a tan/light wood where the normal wood grain would go and then like a dark mahogany on the rest of the car! :)

found this on here some time ago and have always wanted to do this. looks fairly simple. blue/silver very basic stencil work. it was my goal for when i painted mine. i think i would looke better with the blacked out sport grille

sory to post twice in a row but i saw this after i posted... this is dolor my pride and joy (that me and askfdj are currently scrapping out due to new york rust) didnt find the holes till after all the body work it sat in the weeds for a year or 2 after these pics i couldent take it with me at the time i moved to new mexico. the place i orderd the paint from sent me the wrong color so i ended up changing my plans due to time constraints and kinda ran with it and was very impressed how it turned out. i kinda went with the old school nascar theme with the engine displacement displayed. if i did my math right a 258 bored 30 over is now a 262 hence the 262 lol i then went around the numbers with a brush and silver paint, i kinda had to do somthing with it because the white kind of bled through the tape i used... you can kinda see it in the pic. it took 3rd place at my colleges car show. the color is KW boatswain blue/chrysler bright white

Glad you like the Wood Vinyl idea. Could look very cool. A Wooden Car! :)

You know I'm a sucker for the Corps....  I was toying with the idea of painting woodgrain then clearing it.   I also have a friend who is a tag artist and I've been thinging of getting the sides and maybe a stripe down the middle tagged after painting the whole car 1st.  Then clearing that.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Keep'em comming...
