    I don't know how to photoshop but you'll have to use your imagination. Been kicking around some ideas on how I should paint my cars in the future. Normally I don't like custom but it's been growing on me lately. The idea is for it to be custom but still look like it could be factory.

    Idea #1. 1967 Barracuda fastback. B5 blue exterior. Gold 67 stripe that runs down the center of the hood, roof and trunk lid. 15" torque thrusts with the spokes painted gold to match. Kind of a bit of a low key tribute to David Pearson's old paint scheme.

    Idea #2. 1968 Barracuda fastback. Black exterior. Gold 68 stripes down the sides plus 15" torque thrusts with the spokes painted gold. A bit of a tribute to the Bandit's paint scheme.

    Idea #3. 1971 Duster. You know how Plymouth had the hood painted black as well as the top of the fenders, doors and wrap around the c pillars? Well what if instead of the black treatment, it had a semi flat B5 blue treatment with B5 blue side stripes with the rest of the exterior being white? I don't think I've seen one done up like that before.

        Just my opinoin
        1) can't imagine why a Mopar would be painted in tribute to a Ford
        2)can't imagine why a Mopar would be painted in tribute to a Pontiac

          IMO your car, your way..... Just remember custom means literally that... Custom and tailored to your taste... It's all about you and some will like it and some won't.

          Keep in mind that the day you decide to sell it there will be an extremely narrow market for your car. Otherwise, do your thang.....

          I like all 3 choices, but #3 with blue/blue would be sharp!

          Custom Colors

          Custom paint, reasonable cost...you can get a factory like color with a candy finish, or a pearl in the basecoat...

              I’m digging the custom paint but the stance and side pipes not so much. That hood scoop has to go as well.
