At an indoor show one time, I had an artist friend spend hours studying the paint job on our team's boat. The little details, like ghost stripes, fades from one color to another and incredible striping and lettering, kept him fascinated, much to the chagrin of his female companion.  ::) Some of the detail, like a 1/72" wide pinstripe, with the painters name written inside the lines were spectacular.

Beppie's coupe deserves a long look.  Lots of cool details.
A lot has changed since that pic was taken.Lol
It would be nice if you saw the car all finished.
I want to see it in that root beer metallic that was on the headlights! 8)
George,
Just a tease.
 The block & heads are the only things painted on the motor.Everything else is polished or chromed except the carbs.

Man, that's going to be cool. The plan for the engine for my T-Bucket is Naples Orange block and heads, raw cast magnesium injector manifold with polished aluminum stacks, polished brass throttle linkage parts, polished Corvette valve covers with Naples Orange between the fins, Black Crackle pump, pump bracket, distributor, polished aluminum mounting brackets and other bits. Should pop.

This custom also took a long time to study at LARs in 2012...  So much work in this one...
We had that at Quail Lodge about 4-5 years ago.............What a pain!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Wrong venue with the champagne drinkin' crowd.  Tom Mix's Duesenberg was right next to it and we could figure out which one was going to collapse first!

2012, Tom the Tire Guy show, Cam Grants '34 Roadster, I spent a lot of time looking at this car. Different, and interesting. Cams cars tend to be "provocative". :D
