PostSubject: Caprice exterior brainstorm   Tue Apr 23, 2013 9:19 pm

The caprice needs a little bodywork on the rear quarter, it's a little wavy. Some dings here and there... Olds bumper needs painting. I was thinking of doing something a little different. Getting rid of the red pin stripe and the chrome around wheel wells/rocker panels. Adding this obnoxious red strip around the whole car. For now I'd stick with the American racing wheels I have, but painted black.



Am I crazy? I really like it. I'd want to keep the chrome on the bumpers.

Lol, Jim. Very Happy That and air shocks... Razz

I think it looks good! Need to black out EVERYTHING if you're doing black wheels though...

Actually, I prefer SPRINT. I have a line on another set barely used. But, that's another discussion. I dont know if I'm ready to let go of the chrome on the front and rear. If I do that I'd have to get rid of my olds grill, or paint it. Don't know if I want to do that either.

Tim, I like it. I've seen a white sedan with a black stripe like that. Black/red would look wicked sweet. Arrow

Ill try it when I get home. Some many different variables. I think with the 15" black wheels to keep the chrome I could tie it in with RWL tires.

I also like the red stripe.

I've wanted to do a set of SS wheels like that for some time now. Use SEM for wheel paint!

You can always cut the front Moog springs. We need to find a couple Moog options for the rear.

You lowered the 3rd one too much, camber is way off. Sad
