This is my favorite part. Charlie (Builder), and Tina (Interior) and I started doing the rudimentary planning for Lily. Without giving away trade secrets, we've got a plan in the works. Three colors. Deep Purple. Light Gold. White. That's it. HEre's a basic breakdown and some visual reference afterwards:
I: BODY: Dark Purple Suede
II: ENGINE: Aztec Gold
III: INTERIOR: Pearl White
A PURPLE DEEP. JUST ENOUGH TO BE SINISTER. WE'RE TALKING ABOUT A SUEDE-LIKE TEXTURE. THAT'S ALL I WILL SAY FOR NOW.
We're looking for a good lighter gold without too much orange in it.
Aztec golds, 50s golds, subtle golds. Lee Pratt has a good handle on it. See below.
We're talking about using Jet Hot and light gold as the two colors.
The image below is an excellent example.
Block in gold. dress up items in double dipped and polished Jet-Hot.
A surfer scoop and single four-barrel carb. in combo of Jet-Hot and gold paint.
I'm leaning in the direction of a Rustoleum color with a clear on top.
The Clear would want to be baked on. More on that later. First at low temp
200 degrees, then at 400 degrees. More on this later.
A good reference for light gold. Not too orangy or blingy.
Lee Pratt's engine. Tasty and understated.
III: INTERIOR REFERENCE
Good color reference. Stich work too blingy.
To tufted, but like the comfiness.
Very nice and clean. Two tone to add bling?
See next note.
Too much, but love the wraparound effect, and the center division between seats.
A cross between prior and this one would be cool. A little more bling.
