This is my '36 Ford coupe on its way down to get cleared after being flamed. The base colour is Ford XR Phantom, and the flames are 'House of Colour" Candy Lime Gold Green. The flames have metalflake to make it sparkle which is a new product from the USA.



Let me know what you all think....

Cool! Matt egan is responsible for the licks isnt he? Are they the wheels/tyres you're running?
Looks a lot better and tougher than before!

Yeah, if you decide to not run those wheels (and they're Ford pattern of course) I'll buy them off you... as for what to run, I can't go past either American Racing Torq Thrusts or ETlll's

Way cool ride though, how long til it's finished?

ETIII's would look good, how about the New dragway wheels, that look like an ETIII, with maybe ten spokes at the front. Kind of a reminisant of early gasers,they would look good with your killer motor. Can't really tell what suspension you're running, but 20" billets wouldn't really suit the style of the car if it is fairly traditional, ie dropped beam/tube with four bars etc. Maybe 16 or 17" for the rear with 14/15/16" at the front with a mean rake would look TUFF
Keep up the good work, when is the expected completion date, Cols coastal?

They were on the back cover of ASR or Cruzin, they were called "nostalgia" or something.

Yer did look at the hopsters not bad, also like halibrands.and coddington smoothies, what would the EIIIs look like on a fended car like the idea but i would have to tub the rear to get the right look( big) as 8.5 is as big as i can go

Flamed 36, I'm as envious as hell just makes me want to jump in ROKNROD and drive down...... Tubs are great as you've already seen, even small ones,
Rim choice is crucial but think of cleaning duties......
Cheers Franky ........ we had a great trip, thanks for the refreshments
