Orange silver and black for me, have been working on designs for my new car and it should look bombed! Also impartial to the anodized blue finish and metallic silver on king shocks

I'm really getting into the old colours that used to be all over 70's American muscle cars.

Awesome colours, with awesome names like Go Man Go, as seen here:

Chris, That's the colour I had planned for my pannel's but the Coaters thought otherwise.
Eventually I'll end up with that and the Candy Green frame.

Is that a Jimco?

One of those $300,000 buggies that Jet is faster than?

No, I can't touch these guy's, lets get it right. It would be nice to say i could, but there pumping 4 digit's from the engine.

Purhap's with a Well setup lightweight buggy, build with reliability as a main key feature, then a 300-400hp engine setup (busa turbo).
I might be onto it, But it takes alot of support which I don't have to end up with something like that.

and back to colors;
i love carbon black; but they only apply it as a strange kind of sticky thing on the body only. not the tubes.
anyone know any applications on tubes?


you mean like a vinyl wrap? If it is vinyl wrap you are talking about it is usually applied with heat guns and can get a killer look on the body work. Never seen it done on a frame/tubes, nor would I reccomend it for the fact that you wouldnt be able to spot cracks and would be a pain in the arse for any changes or repairs.

I was always a fan of the Ivan Stewart TT look

I have to say there aren't too many colour combinations I don't like if they are done properly.

My mate is building a Kermit green XA 4 door with Purple accents in the engine bay (bought with paint done) that we hated at first but "The Joker" cracks have stuck and now it looks great!

Without going back through there is a Cuda with the black / orange ripping effect on a page in here somewhere, looks ace because of the effort made to break up the blocks. I like the Red / white buggy above with a similar effect. Russell has always done a great job on his Graphics to highlight the colours too.

I have always been a fan of Blaze Blue, IMO Ford's only positive contribution to my life. I painted an LH Torana that colour with Black bonnet and window surrounds, it is also the colour I chose for the Piranha with the Aluminium features.

Jet's Cuda in Orange / Green, the original Cuda too - they all look great as long as they aren't just one blacked out colour. The topic is right when it says "Combination" as getting that right can be tricky for some.

I've always been keen on this.

With a bit of purple in there when I eventually get enough balls.

Weren't you 12 seconds ahead when you had the breakdown at the last event? I call that 'beating the pants off 'em" mate!

Now that I've finished I thought I'd put up my color combination, saw the post on early muscle car colors earlier
It was just after I had picked this which is 70's ford wild violet.

That wasn't a crash Jet, that was an impromptu field impact test of your welds!

Valid Point!

The frame held up Amazing. I was Surprised not to see more bend bar work! But it distributed it very well.

Nice work Al, She looks great!
