So no more vinyl?

no......i had wanted it all off for a while, but i had to wait for an insurance deal to go through (which it never did)...so i took one side off, and left the other so that they could see what it looked like..........but since now i know it cant happen i finally got to take the other side off


so....no more vinyl

What's the dark purple look like? I'd go with gold myself,
but you're definately adding to the "COP magnet" with a
red paintjob. I'd get red anyway, or black :D ! Sucks about
the paint, though.

its almost black...well, on a cloudy day it would look black
when the sun hits it it kinda lights up with a deep purple glow

its really nice

I saw a guy's Harley with a "black cherry" paintjob; kinda'
looked like what you described, without the purple glow. I
still like bright red, like the Ferrari red miguel6632 mentioned.
My old friend got his '72 Camaro painted candy apple red,
and that shit looks awesome, kinda' looked orange under
the streetlights. Maybe he had the gold flakes in it?
I'd definately go with the first choice, though, IMO.

what are those gold flakes !!!
" sorry i know le'l about paint jobs"

it would be like small flakes of gold paint (kinda like glitter, but bigger pieces)..........if you put on as much as i had planned it almost makes the paint look deep, like you could put your hand into it

this was done a lot in the 60's and 70's..not so big anymore
