You guysare brutal....ROFL I just posted to show painters skill. The two examples of marbeling arent reall good comparisons to mine . They started with black as a base , And I really like the effect, but as some mention the black base leaves the car looking a little dingey as you walk up on it . Till you see the depth and detail a cam cant capture.And the Jag has won alot of best in class, The Look is something you really like or hate, Kinda like Ranch dressing, ya either put it on everything ...or dont . The painter and I agreed to leave the cranberry as base, then silver metalflake for technique, then he shot entire thing with blood red candy and it'* sic! Clear and small amount of pearl tommorrow.It came out very jeweled looking and I'm real happy with it. I will post a couple pics b4 I crash.

Of ten pics in paint booth only two are even discenable. Sorry, but heres the back end. The only shots not wiped out with light overkill to grow corn.. Tomorrow it gets clear and a touch of red ice pearlflake.

Here the silver metalflake after process and cranberry coming back



After the blood candy, it really changes things around....looks10x better in person
the candy isnt a gloss so it'* all theat shiny or deep yet.


And the exposure I was fighting.........


Hopefully tomorrow nite I'll have some nice shots of it done

Very sick indeed. And I love the color change from the translucent candy coats. Should be a real attention getter for shows,...I hope. I ordered the 20 inch wheels yesterday and things are shaping up!

Hey Morty! Ya I aready have everything ZEX offers, a full purge, a machine gun purge and a snowstorm if I want to use up the bottle fast, all laser lit at will . Now a matter of wiring it all together and getting it on the firewall neatly....after the paint is finished. SSEi the mag/ tire combo is same height as my OEM.As for fast, it'* got instant 75 Hp to 250Hp boost and ZEX doesnt lie about thier claims and have tons of dynosheets to prove thier ratings. It'* going to be as fast as it is sic.....I can assure you of that And Pat yes it'* really shaping up nice and turning out top notch, after a lot of planning and worry.Hope to get up to Bill'* for an afternoon.
