Any thoughts?

Flames are supposed to go front to rear.  Are you switching to front wheel drive??  afro

Good idea there

I seen my family member award winning custom painter Art Himsel do a few nice flame jobs. I think if you do the nose in a cherry flame color and come off the front fender wells back with true flame paint work it would look real mean. Art did our Pro Stock 427 SOHC Maverick and air brushed my glass bumpers on my 57tbird they can be viewd here http://fordflashback.com/jd_fords.asp . I think your idea of flames is a good idea

On another note how fast have you gone in that car? what size engine?

I don't see any flames. It looks like the car hit a can of green paint and it all splashed back on the blue body.

Nah, let the flames stay going the way they are -- I noticed the "backwards" right away and thought it was a good idea, a kind of play on the usual theme.

Of course I hope it's not a harbinger of spins to come.  Happy New Year, everyone.

My pop couldn’t get the gist of it when I was trying to explain the idea of the backwards flames so I did this to show him and thought I would get everyones opinion on the concept and colors. SSS is dead on that its to be different from the huge numbers of “proper orientation” flames and not take ourselves too seriously.

Some have mentioned adding more colors to set off the flames. I am a little apprehensive due to the fact that it may become a problem to touch up if I get a ding or need to replace some sheet and one more color will really make the labor add up…..this may change after it gets painted.

Thanks for the comments

This is what the good ol' trusty color wheel suggests; but then again maybe the green is for the greener,  (read faster speed) pasture of 2009.

Nothing more personal than paint color and flames.  Don't ask if you really know what you want in the first place and please yourself first......but now that you asked I don't like the flames backwards  evil ,
