i got a 1986 indy 400 from a buddy, i just fully rebuilt the motor and it is running like a champ now. i body filled,primed and sanded the hood for a new paint scheme. i want to do somthing that looks cool but wont be to overbored as in pricing. i was thinking of just doing a 2 tone but that mabey seems to original. if you guys cool post up some ideas or picture of what you have done that would be sweet. i am also attaching some pics of the primed hood if someone with photoshoping skills could design a few cool paint schemes for me on the hood (if you could i would like to see one with it 2 toned), the chassis has some red in it so i would like to encorporate atleast a little red into the hood.

***thanks for the halp guys [thumb]

Here is one I painted. Hood was painted black and cleared with automotive paint,I had Quinlan freehand the flames with pinstrip masking tape,then I painted the flames with a rattle can. Turned out pretty good for not putting much time into it.

^Amateur job! Ha. I could do better now. [;)]

I was quite partial to the flame design at a time (and still am I suppose). I masked off the one above (as mentioned), and did the one on my ZR as well...

The possibilities are endless, just google custom paint and start browsing.

I have always wanted to see a stealth fighter theme on a wedge. Flat black with painted rivits and stuff would be sweet. The numbers and stuff with top secret style lettering

I'll be doing one close to that, but vintage plane style. Panels with rivets, nose art, etc.. Looking forward to doing it, just need to find the time.

I still think that Abominable snowman from the Rudolf cartoon is just down right sick. Hey Rick, I would'nt mind sending you the top hood cover on my 2010 F6 this summer. We'll have to get together and think of something that will match the stock decals on the side panels! Pretty good idea with the Retro Polaris Decals...I have yet to see some Retro AC decals on a sled yet.

ArcticFX makes a retro kit for Cats. I also believe Cat themselves had a Retro kit on the Firecats in 2005.
