Maybe I am missing something here, but I only see TWO (2) doors?

Purely my own opinion, but in terms of inspiration, this paint job is a very good example of what NOT to do.

Point taken. I should have more accurately stated that the paint color and sheen itself is what we are after, not necessarily the striping or flame job.

Greg,

If the body came out "straighter than anticipated," I urge you to go with ebony lacquer, or its equivalent. That is what Olds had on it, and when clean, nothing can beat it.

How do I know, my high school ride was a '60 S88 in ebony black.

The body came out very straight, it is surprising! But we're still painting the car satin black, for two reasons.

One, the saatin black is cool, and it will be easy to put another topcoat over it if I decide to do so later on.

Two, the budget will not allow a normal base/clear or even a single stage paint right now.

The satin black will look nice. Honestly, unless your body work is *perfect* gloss black will show every single boo boo no matter how small. Black is also tough for a driver...it's hard to keep clean, and shows swirl marks and scratches when it's sunny. Done right though, it does look stunning. Just out of curiousity, what's your budget for paint? A single stage acrylic enamel shouldn't be a whole lot more than $200 for everything (at least it wasn't last time I checked, but that was a while ago). You might want to call around...most paint manufacturers have a basic line of products that are relatively inexpensive. Even a base/clear like PPG Omni shouldn't be too bad... Or, just paint it satin black if that's what you really want :mrgreen: .
