Hey out there guys and girls.... I am contemplating having flames put on my Slingshot and am looking for idea's. I have seen LLoger's but am looking for any other idea's that might have been done already. If any of you have had ghost or traditional flames on a Slingshot I would really appreciate flicks. Incidentally, I am in Sacramento.......

Regards,

Rainwater

Flame colors

I would ask you , what are your favorite colors , beside's slingshot yellow. I've seen good flame jobs and bad flame jobs , but it was the style of the flames that I didn't care for, never the color. I love a multicolor fade flames , transending into each other, a nice blend

I like silver
blue
white
purple
magenta ... But all tastfully done. Just my opinion Chris

Check the flames on the NASCAR Pace Car - great looking paint work - you should find it doing a search for Nascar - several photos were on this site.

Stripping

Had a guy strip my truck yesterday, he's been doing it for 35 years. Turned the truck over to him and told him "Don't get too crazy". Two hours later, I had an old fashion stripping job, (real paint), with tear drops in several different locations. Wish I knew how to post digital pictures on the site. Its great. He spent the first 20 minutes looking at the truck, and kept saying, this is a great truck for painting. No chrome to interfer.
Talked to him about flames, said it was a great vehicle for that too. Just have to go with the right color combination.

I would LOVE to see what he did; our stripper is coming next weekend and has yet to even see an SSR up close. We want lines, more in the vonDutch style with something along the side to break up the yellow. Can you send pictures via e-mail? [email protected] is my out of here e-mail address.

OK.....I know this is going to open the floodgates for SSRfanatic humor and I may sound real stupid here, but what is a 'stripper'? :confused

It's "Striping"

Not to be too picky, you guys, but it's "striping" and "striper". When I read that you were having a guy "stripping" your truck, I envisioned someone taking all the wheels and parts off and leaving it up on blocks....not to mention references to your "stripper" -- is he taking all his clothes off while he's working? :lol

Stripper

Nobody said I could spell, they just know that I get in the general direction of what I mean, then I mangle the hell out of it. :lol
