for those at the roundup yesterday.
you saw a project that took all i had to keep under wraps for a month.
for those that didnt make it.
here it is.
something ive wanted to do for some time, but could never find one priced
reasonably to test.
after staring at the pics for the past month i like the look better then the old one. and have already started planning out next years look.

let me know what you think. Very Happy

Anthony

I am glad you posted, Diane went around and took pictures of the cars and owners. Somehow yours got missed.

It is going to have a great look to it, can't wait till I see it painted.

I was looking at that 1 pic where yours is on the end.
I could tell something was up but couldnt really figure it out.
That looks pretty damn good.
NOW
Whats the overall plan. Match the nost to the body or body to the nose?
Your pretty talented with this stuff. I'm impressed cheers

I agree, but I don't think the army green would look good with the roadie nose. Flat black would be awesome though Arrow

I'd paint the rest of the car the color of the nose. I love that shade of green on the nose.

Looks excellent my man! Totally badass. It makes me Randy. I always loved the RM front but never cared for the rest of it, so yours really pulls it together, especially with the flares...

You're ability to keep this under wraps was awesome...

I think you should find some of the Roadie side trim and make some of it fit some how and tint the chrome a little. either way it's awesome looking.

I like the color combo you were talking about at the roundup. I think it'll look killer. Smile

And like I said before, if you told me you were going to do this before, I woulda thought it wouldn't work. But it does. I wouldn't of believed it. You got rid of all the ugly RMS parts and stuck the nose on a nice body. I diggit! Mucho props! Very Happy

scratch i was the last one to leave both the park and newicks.

this is the color im leaning toward right now.
hot rod flatz- speed blue



if the roadmaster side trim works i will paint it gloss black kinda like this.

and i may do just the roof.
candy apple green over silver metallic base.
with airbrush work on the silver before the green goes on.

and the wheels will be gloss black.

I can't wait to see what this looks like when done. I'd almost say if you were going to paint it all one gloss color, do a metallic graphite or dark silver...but I like that flat blue
