Long story short... My buddy had a 66 Caprice that he decided he didnt want to restore so he bought one already fixed. Both cars are Identical. Factory light green with vinyl top. I got the "beater" Caprice from him to restore myself. I had a buddy photoshop his car, the nice green one in the first pic, Into what I want my Caprice to look like. I want to put gunmetal gray Torque Thrust Ds on mine. Tell me what you think.
For a novice body guy, i'm taking a HUGE risk in paiting it black but what the hell. It wont be ready for paint until summer at the earliest.
Black car with black vinyl top.....don't get much better. I'd love to do a black car, just don't think I got that much block sandin' in me anymore.
White cars with black vinyl tops I think look neat also.
52 views and no comments??? I guess it must look bad and everybody is to nice to say "its ugly"
gee brian that looks like sh&t!.........no seriously.....that is the wonder of computor generated stuff......gives ya the desire to do it....im stayin in the white family artic vrs orig ermine....but silver is a great alternative as well.......
I kinda like the green. The body has to be absolutely pristine to go black. I'm fond of those Cragars too! The vinyl top is cool and kind of scarce. The 70 Monte Carlo with vinyl roof bears a lot of resemblance to the Caprice imo.
really...... all bullsh&&tin aside......... the green to the eye seems very very rare indeed....and an nice color.....you will save yourself alot of hassle then a complete color change.....some where..some day some how a rubber will break or over spray will get in.....its MURPHY'S LAW!........an some di(k head will tell you .............just my true feelin about color changes......but you have it ...so enjoy it..... good luck!........
Hold on... let me clear something up... there are 2 different cars here. The green one in the pic is my friends car, and obviously REAL NICE. I have a different 66 Caprice that i'm restoring.Thats the one i'm talking about painting. I just used his car as a photoshop model because mine is in pieces. The green one in the pic will stay green/as is.
