    Ghost flames

    Ok. Kicking around some paint ideas and was wondering if anyone had some photos of ghost flames on one of our cars? In particular on the caracass red!

    I've thought about doing Ghost Lighting on my hood for a couple of years now. Will wait till the car is repainted again though. Ghost flames are nice and suttle. Not in your face.

    Pic of what you mean by "Ghost Flames"?
    Do you mean a paint design (Flames) that is barely visible? If so, i've been pondering the same thing, but on white instead of red. Like a light grey/silver for the color. I saw a eclipse with it once. You wouldn't notice it from far away, but the closer you got to the car, the more the design would apear. It realy caught my eye.

    LOL @ LordWarlock - that's Flamer, not Ghost Flames

    I'm not a fan of the flames. Even in ghost form. It's much more of a hot rod / retro domestic thing, and IMHO it doesn't even look good on them. Too much "bling" detracts from the lines of the 3S, and that's where I find most of the beauty in it.

    In the end, it's your car, so do what makes you happy. Even if that means a purple engine bay and an automatic transmission.

    That is exactly what I was picturing. The eclipse I saw with the ghost flames was the same white my car was. You really had to be standing next to the car to see it. Thats what i liked the most about it. It makes people take a double take. I know I did.
