I recently purchased my first car ever, a *pre-loved* 1998 VW Beetle.
Within two weeks of having it I was rear-ended.
No serious damage was done but the lights/lenses around my license plate were broken and a good amount of paint chipped off of my bumper, it's fiberglass so it didn't dent or break. I FINALLY got the check from that guy's insurance company and it's a GROSS overestimate (totally awesome for me!) so I've decided that I'd like to totally repaint the car. My dad will be painting it and the sky is pretty much the limit. The only thing we're not really able to do is airbrush work.
I've been trying to think of different ways I could potentially paint the car and I'd really dig seeing what you guys could come up with! Post pictures you find online, things you draw, or just explain it to me and I can sketch it up.
Here are some photos I found online (just for inspiration, not concrete ideas):
Flames are a definite maybe.
and I've been playing around with the idea of doing lace panels/racing stripes on the car. Here are a few sample pics of what I mean:
Any suggestions or ideas you have would be much appreciated!! Thx.
