Exclamation Would this paint job be possible?

This was a photochop made over in the Members gallery not by me



Personally, I think its the best paint job EVER for a car! Would it be possble though?

anything is possible...

it all comes down to how much $ do you have.

check some of the hot rod magazines and youll see some crazy paint jobs.

Well thats definitely interesting looking. I'm not sure if I like it or not though. I'm also not sure what my feelings are on the exhaust. I don't think the owner of a car like that would have to worry about seeing another one just like it though

Repaint your car that nice dark grey, and just do a poor job of waxing it. Voila.

That looks a little too much like bad wallpaper to me...The dark grey color would be great without the other crap.

Yes it can be done, but like stated before, it will cost a LOT of money...unless you know someone that does custom painting and airbrushing. Most of the time, these guys like a challenge and want to do the best they possibly can...pride I guess...

Just my .02

Actually I did that in photoshop, and it was in the Taste the Rainbow thread originally. I like the color, but the twexture would be hard to match and I dont think it would be cheap either. Whenever you do custom paint, anything IS possible, but as far as cost thatwould be the problem.
the dual exhaust may be a problem also, since you would have to split the exhaust pipe. with the driveshaft you would have to split it behind the differential and I would think it would be worth the trouble, although it does look sweet as hell.

I just noticed it was that "bubble" texture thingy from photoshop... Thats not the first impression I got though when I saw it and liked it

Anyway, Im surprized noone else likes it... I guess thats cause im the only remotely profesional artist here (Your not are you Andres?)

it reminds me of a late 80s/early 90s mountain bike paint job. all it needs are some neon splatters and you're set.
personally, i go for low-key.

Thats the thing, it IS low key. Its not bright, its an over-all dark grey, and in low light or just passing by it wont attract much attention... But when you do a double take and look closer, its got a brush type shade texture to it

This effect is completely possible w/o airbrushing. The paint is made by House of Kolors (yes, they spell it w/ a "K"). It is a self marbling paint. The Green Civic from the Fast and the Furious (Hector's?) has that kind of paint. They even self crackling paint. Don't ask me how its done, I've just seen it on local Hot Rods.

Personally, I think that's a pretty cool paintjob (even if it is photochopped)...

Reminds me of a camoflague scheme I've seen on an aircraft once. Pretty funky.

Don't think I'd be willing to shell out the $$$ for it though...
