    Default need pics of jeeps with flames, ghost flames, and unique paint jobs

    we just did a bunch of body work to my buddy's WRX, all custom stuff. anyway, i have been learning how to do all of it, and i mentioned to my body guy and friend that i'd like to learn how to do flames. Curtis (the body guy) does SICK flame work. His ghost flames are extremely tight, and his other flames are pretty intense. anyway, it would only be paint, but i wanna be sure i wanna flame the jeep before i do it. any of you guys have any pics of jeeps with flames? mine's yellow. i was thinking ghost flames would be tight, and it would give me a chance to fix the nasty ding in my paint. But real flames would be intense too. anyway, can you guys help me out? you don't have to lecture me about how i should do real mods and stuff. i want to learn how to do this, and i figure for the price (paint) and the experience, i can't beat the deal. Thanks!

    Question

    Am I right when I assume that only ghost flames can be TIGHT and only regular flames can be INTENSE or can regular flames be TIGHT as well?

    All kidding aside, it's not something I would do but those ghost flames on the yellow TJ are intense, sorry I mean tight.

    that was a long time ago...I liked the olive drab one!

    I am assuming that thread is loooong gone to save precious space for the "will 32's fit?) threads?

    Flames = originally on the hot rods of the 50s. Usually high horsepower street cars.

    Ghost flames = Big part of the hot rod scene in the 80's. Usually painted on a car from the 60's or earlier.

    You = Drive a jeep with a 6 cylinder. Hopefully not a street jeep and it does see trails.

    Me = Waiting for someone to ask the question "Will putting a big JEEP sticker across my hood and down the fender look ricey?


    All kidding aside, my jeep gets scratched more every time I am on the trail. I do paint and body work and I dont see any point in taking the time to paint mine or repair damage but if it is what you want, go for it.

    I'm with Grumpy.

    Ghost Flames were one of the first mods I considered for my Jeep. They are definitely "tight" on a nice clean jeep. But once I really started hitting the trails, that idea went into the trash along with the ARB Bull Bar Bumper and Thornbirds.

    Don't hate the playa, hate the game!

    Glitter is where its at. I mixed up a batch of Blue and Silver for the flames on my ZJ, but now I'm thinking about doing it over with red/orange/yellow for that old school look...
