I was thinking maybe a red pinstripes just to break up the two black colors or something like that.

ranger2525
03-29-13, 07:14 PM
The pinstripe will be Lambo orange along with the calipers.

You're not going to keep the red powdercoated lug nuts still...are you?

Looks sweet! Can't wait to see it.

LOL No the red lug nuts are being replaced by black. I know that upsets you but I will give them to you at the next cars and coffee meet.

Cars and Coffee?? Or Fast Fridays?

BTW - I just went through an Olathe sobriety checkpoint (don't worry, I was 100% sober). All the cops were talking about my car and asked me to rev the engine...one of the few times in my life that I genuinely was afraid to open the cutouts and let 'er rip.

Well right now I have a jantzer TB,K&N cold air intake,OBX long tubes, Muffler delete,Talked a few times with a not very popular feller around here about a TVS2300. I shelled my rear. So I have the new diff and g-force 1000hp axles. I also have a comp. cams cam. But I want to figure out where I am going with forced induction first.

Windows products have a free image resizer. But Windows is horribly inferior to Apple, so I can't help you with your iPad.

Import to photo bucket then onto the forum is the only way I know how..hope that helps?, like the paint job btw :)

I just went to the App Store and got a quick FREE app to resize images. In fact I just looked and it is actually called "Resize Image". Good luck.

----------

BUT, after thinking about it, this forum will only let you upload so many pictures until you can't upload any more. ^He's right, photobucket is your best bet.

I guess not if it makes you feel better. It's your $9,000 to do as you please.

Yes, make a photobucket account and be done with having to resize anything.

What exhaust you have on there or is it just aftermarket exhaust tips?

So are you leaving the hood/roof/deck shiny, and the rest matte? I'm confused.

Also, is there special ways you have to wash the matte finish? I'm guessing it doesn't get waxed? Sorry, trying to learn here.

Yes the matte is matte and the gloss is gloss. There is a orange pinstipe between the two.
The matte is satin clear coat and can be waxed just like the resy of the car. No wax for 4 weeks though

The exhaust is OBX headers into 3" pipe with X-over and Matte black 5" diesel truck tips. Sounds awesome!!

Sorry wasn't trying to be an ass. But people tend to chime in on custom paint without knowing what it takes to turn a RED car into this car.
