Default "Tweety Bird" Out Standing In Her Field!

I see that Cathie noticed that I had the tires turned, after she put her shades on! lol.. I like them better that way. I added some pix to my Paint web page, showing her off a bit. Here is the link to it.

Thumbs up

The car turned out very nice Ray . I definitely like the blackwalls better than the raised white letters, of course we know white walls would be best though, and I still think it needs some pinstriping at the paint transitions to really set it off .

Nice Job

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the comments. We tried some pin striping to see what it would look like. We tried 2-3 different colors. We all thought it looked better without the pin striping. I might look at that again though.

Ray, try using the yellow and applying it on the white, but leave a 1/8 or 3/32 gap between the yellow pinstripe and the yellow paint or do the opposite and put a white stripe on the yellow paint, just throwing some things out there to look at.

If you don't do anything it still looks good .

pin-striping on a color pallet like those.. the best colors that make it all pop are tan, sky blue, and a crisp white... some times even certain shades of green look really killer... dont know what colors youve tried, but theres my 2 pennies worth

Thanks for the information. Much appreciated. We tried white and turquoise. We would have tried yellow, but they were out of it. We tried turquoise because I have a full roll of it and also the Tbird emblems are turquoise. Down the road, I might try again, only this time find some yellow. It was the opinion of the paint and body staff that pin striping did not do anything for her looks. So we did not pin stripe her.
