my ride is kinda rat rod style. i painted it a flat color and i thought about striping it but never really wanted to spend the money on it cus all that shit is comin off this winter when i start workin on the car. the only reason i sprayed it flat is because i got the paint for free :biggrin:

My cutlass is going in mid grey primer with a flat black top, trunk, and hood w/ black pinstriping, letters on the trunk lid, and still deciding on numbers on the door. Keep in mind though my ride isn't a complete lolo. It sits on 20 inch players with spinners... lol Got the stuff to do it bu tno time to spray it. Will post pics when done though...

Nothing wrong with some flatner added to the clear..as long as its sprayed right...and flat with some gloss Kandy metal flake is sweet...cuase it aint sweet if it aint Kandy.... :cool:

usually these rides fall in the UNFINISHED class,to me its the way to roll if your still workin on your ride and u wanna look presentable,on the streets.

heres a good example,painted top with the rest primered,indicating that this ride is underconstruction.

I'm going to do my 52 with a satin clear over chalk white... It'll have the "primer" look with a gloss top...

I think bombs look better that way :biggrin:

as long as you know the difference between a lowrider and a hot rod. seen "low rodz" but primer isnt lowriding in my opinion. thats just an unfinished ride.

Well, IF I ever get done with her, she's going to be a nostalgic lowrider... I'm sure things will change (with money, time, etc) but right now, everything I have is 50s, 60s, and 70s nos stuff...

I have seen a bunch of rides that look unfinished, but have seen some in flat that look good, also :biggrin:

never seen a lowrider with a "flat" paint look (maybe some old bombs, but with laquer paint, og paint). seen lots of badly unfinished primered cars with pinstriping though :)

True, lowriders need glossy paint . Ratrods look good with Flat paint, Ole school choppers as well....but the Kandies ,flakes and pearls are what makes a lowrider truely stand out from the rest....
