    I've seen a few really nifty paint schemes from creative types on here … how about using this thread as a place to post your dream-scheme?

    Silas Sunday designed Bel Air inspired wrap for Joshua Caldwell v3.jpg
    Based on a photo of a '56 Chevy Bel Air that I sent to Silas Sunday.

    I would love it if another artist could do their own version closer to what the original photo was where the front section was either horizontal or followed the edge on the Elio and the curve down didn't start till after the door handle.

    I love the belair scheme.

    But I would love to see a 1955 belair scheme done in original torquoise and white.

    The other thing is what to use for the chrome trim to divide up the 2 colors?
