Looks decent, I would have to see a pick of the whole car.

I'm clueless.

The flames are too uniform for my tastes. Of course, that's the kind of thing I do for a living, so I'm more picky than most. But, does look as if it was applied well, and a good choice of colors.

well heres the story, my buddys uncle is a painter so I asked him to paint the side skirts for me originally, then when we where taking them off I decided to also get the stock grill painted, then in the heat of the moment, I asked if he could do flames, he said he could, so when we got down to the shop he tried to mask out flames, but it was terrible, so he had one of the newer employees come in and mask the flames out, anyway the guy was like 16 and it was a whole lot better than what my buddys uncle could come up with. then we went in and mixed the colors for the flame, my idea was that I kinda wanted it to look as if there was an engine fire that was coming out of the scoop, and I wanted the blue flame from a torch, he mixed the colors, slapped pearl in there and painted away, he then thought it was a good idea to put in red highlights. and for the painting of the grill, side skirts and hoodscoop all i had to pay was 140 canadian!

Here are some more pics of the car, I think the flames are really subtle, usually people dont notice till they get close, then its like whoa!

I like them. Don't stand out much. Still looks very clean.

I'm clueless.
