Flames have been in vogue since the late 40s at least.  Here are some interesting pics of flame paint jobs that I have, starting with Bob McCoy's '40.  This one set the standard for flames on '40s

Pete Chapouris' coupe re-ignited the popularity of flames in the early 70s.

Mine- by Dennis Ricklefs





He's holding a pic of one of his flame jobs I liked I found on the internet






His son cutting all the tape at louvers






Dennis said he would shoot straight toners so the color would pop



Shooting a test panel


Shot on black plastic



Into the So-Cal booth.



Primer


Yellow



Adding orange



Red



I was totally lost here- Dennis had to point out the flames to me. He asked me if I wanted more color here & there.












Dennis talked me into the green pinstripe. I was dead set on process blue. Glad I listened to him!





He even signed my book





Before this- I had no clue how involved a flame job was. I liked the fact Dennis involved me during the entire process. I wanted a few licks further apart & was terrified to ask him. Pete Chapouris said to go ahead & tell him, I wouldn't regret it. His attitude was- it's my car & he'll do whatever I ask. After we widened up some of the licks- he liked it (or at least he said he did  ;) ). We played around w/ colors until I saw what I liked.
I'd say- during this whole build, it was the most exciting week & a half of my life.

What a cool heritage to have on your roadster,  one of the classic artists in the hot rod community! And to have the chance to participate ......just great! Nice photo history of the job too! shows what is involved to get a great flame job.
