Personally, I love custom paint jobs -- as long as they are done tastefully. Some of the newer layer upon layer of **** swooshes are overkill, but if you have a few, they aren't bad. Flames, scallops, fades... they're all cool too. But then again, it depends on the car that is painted... a flamed Yugo probably won't cut it. LOL
The only downside is if you do it to a daily driver, you've got to baby the car or truck that much more -- especially if it's really detailed or even worse, one of those new Chameleon paints. I've heard that the Chameleons would require repainting the entire vehicle if it was wrecked because they are impossible to color match.
You thinking of painting one of yours, Mod?
