I had the fortune to meet Pat Ganahl last week at the GNRS. He is a aquaintence of the owner of the 59 bird I'm working on. Pat asked the owner how it was coming along and he was brought up to date. Pat's parting words were "I hope you are not going to Watson paint it". I'm guessing that look has been over done too many times as of late. At least over here in the US.
There are a few here as well, even though I never see them anywhere...Some say just like you, some not, but I wanted this already before Watson passed away and it vent more popular. I kind of like that that it is a period correct paint.
But I will do it, but with my own favorite colors. And I will have a all red leather interior made by a guy ( ) who is among the very best in doing interiors here in Sweden , and who happend to be a friend of mine. And I will have a green pearl steering wheel as well. Its being made at this very moment in Australia
Heres a "Photoshop" version of how I will have it.

I like Green - who woulda guessed, eh? It is a unique color for the Watson Style. It makes a statement for the "Anders Style".

Here is Larry Watson's with the Burgundy that looks nice also.

The Green makes it yours and not a Watson clone.

Watson "borrowed" from Von Dutch et al and developed his unique style. It is neat that you have that talent and vision.

There were some great artists of that era with Watson, Barris and of course Big Daddy Roth.

Now all you need is a custom signature. If this catches on there you may need to repaint the Watson name out in your garage and put "Anders". Great Job on the Garage and would be cool with the Anders Logo on it.

I like the photoshop. And green is my favorite color too. Us Swede's have good taste. There is still some Daleen's over there.

The best part about our hobby it's our car and we can do what we want with it.

I will like Ruth no matter what color she wears.

That is the best Watson paint scheme I have ever seen. Are you going to put the Lake Pipes on your car as in the picture? If so are you going to hook them up or will the be dummys? I think the whole idea looks great.
