Default What color flames go with Electric Blue?

Just got a body shop bids of between $2500 and $4k to flame the cruiser.

Now the big q.

What color flames go well with electric blue?
Should I ghost them?
I figure if I'm spending the money to flame it out, I want people to see it!

Any suggestions are appreciated!

Thanks.

Now, the big

Ghost flames would be cool , maybe like a metallic silver or just very light white. personally I have seen enough pt's with flame jobs, nothing against those that have em, i just think they've been overdone, but hey thats just my personal taste. Best flamejob i ever seen on a PT would have to be PT Chicks car, they did a sweet job with the paint on her car

I haven't seen many ghost flame jobs that look what they cost. Seen one that looked like some pinstripe flames, cost was 2500. I know where I want my money.

Good luck, and hope you get what you want and are happy with it.

Guess I got a good deal on the painted flames/pin-stripes for my car for which I paid $1200. However, clearcoat was not used which saved me some BIG money. IMHO unless you want a "show car finish" there is no need for clearcoat as you cannot see any difference:

Just my two cents. Good luck.
