Default Opinions / Suggestions?

OK, Getting ready to fix up the '03 Tangerine DC2 - I've got an OEM Body kit for it. It's Black, and I"m thinking of leaving it that way. But I really think I need to add some graphics to bring some Black onto the rest of the car.

I'm thinking maybe some Black / Charcoal / Silver flames to bring it all together??

Anyone have any pics of a Tangerine PT with Black Flames?

Yeah, I saw his - Love it. But a several thousand dollar flame job is not in my near future.

Imagine a Tangerine Cruiser with Black all the way around the bottom. Just trying to bring the Black up onto the car...

painting flames is one of the easiest things to do. youtube painting flames and watch some vids. simple to lay out those tape lines once you know the tricks.

I've read on here thaqt the PPG Global is the only paint that really matches the Tangerine Cruiser color - Anyone have a good source for that paint? I've contacted some of the local guys, and so far they don't think they can even get it...

An unpainted black body kit is so rice. If you want the black look at least paint the body kit to protect it.

Let you in on a little paint secret. Not all tangerine dreams are exactly the same color from the factory. Not mention exposure to the UVs. There is probably more than one alternate no mater who you get to mix it.
