Thread: What colour Nova?

  1. #21
    Good advice Phill, thanks

    I have an experienced professional wrapper who is ready to quote for the job when I get the car back. I have seen several of his wrapped cars myself, in the flesh, to assess the quality of his work, and I'm happy.

    It's a good point about the join line though, perhaps I'll reconsider a JPS gold pinstripe that is dual purpose, accentuating a body line and hiding a join. Would therefore be two joins effectively, one either side, but may work better overall

    Seems to be a parallel wrap thread on the Sterling site which has some interesting wrap examples

    Alternative Finish

    Something to consider if you are looking for a non-permanent solution that is easy to remove and can be done to your car for about $400 to $800 is Plasti Dip. I don't know if its being done over there but I've seen plenty of it here. It has come a long way since the beginning and is now offered in many colors. The process has also become much more resilient and durable.

    I've considered Plasti-Dip, again I know (of) an experience operator who gets good results who I'd trust.

    Even with the latest glossifier additives etc it is still a fairly dull finish though, and I'd really prefer a gloss car.

    Maybe I'll try it one day.

    This is the Gulf Nova style I was thinking of copying. The orange stripe down the centre will simplify the wrapping process and hide the join.

    As for plasti dip - I have no personal experience of the process but have heard a few bad reports about it's apparent lack of resilience. How fair this reputation is I do not know but I would certainly speak with a few people that have tried it before commiting

    I scare my passengers, and random people within earshot, by screaming PINK!! at the top of my lungs whenever I see a car that colour!

    Well - it's not pink is it, it's PINK!!!

    Not pink, Magenta. That car has a coat of jam courtesy from Valiant in the 70's. The Valiant Charger (and a couple of other Vals) were available in



    Magenta.

    And obviously numerous other colours.



    So that's a genuine muscle car colour down here.



    And considering that not many were this colour from factory, this is becoming a desirable color for your Chargers.

    Nice Charger - a Hemi too (not the 425 c.i. V8, but a 265 c.i. straight 6 with the same hemispherical combustion chamber design - triple twin-choke Webers too). There's a guy over here in the Mopar Muscle Association with a similar colour Aussie Charger. I keep thinking "Thanks Vermilion", but that was a GM Holden colour, right? Dodge called it Panther Pink, Plymouth called it Moulin Rouge. Very 1970's
