Project Information

Number three in the Freaky Fords Blue Series. The more I look at this color combination the more I like it. I'm partial to blue any way. I think it works well with the flat black wheels. I really wanted to have white walls on these but I could not figure out how to do it and make them look good. Every thing I tried came out a sloppy mess. After three tries I gave up. If you have access to one of those machines that they cut vinyl decals with you might be able to cut a mask perfectly round and just the right size. If you have any ideas I would love to hear them.
