Re: ford lightning project started

nice! Have you ever seen pictures of the black lightning that is totally airbrushed with lightning bolts? I know of a silver one in Canada that is done similar. I'm a huge lightning fan, I have almost purchased one on more than one occasion, but something always happened to keep me from making the jump. I still want one, and will probably buy one when I finally kill my f-150 daily driver (modded out, lowered '99 single cab)


now you have me thinking....I work in the high voltage electrical industry...so big arcs are part of my daily life. I think a similar paint scheme would look very nice on the hood/nose piece and tank topper on my Raptor. Want to shot me a price quote?

Re: ford lightning project started

hell yeah i got a picture saved somewhere of that truck. this guy has a red lightning. he didn't want it just black with bolts he wanted some background "noise" so made it look sort of cloudy with a red kandy over it to give some color on there

Re: ford lightning project started

That does look awesome, damn nice work.

I think a silver tank topper and hood painted similar, and "Raptor 700R" written on the side just like you wrote "lightning" would look very nice on my quad....

Re: ford lightning project started

we can do it up! the "lightning" has bolts going inside of it. looks pretty sweet... i'll get better shots in the sun... my oldschool HP 5MP doesn't like night shots. my wife's 10MP is at her sister's still :grr:
