If you don’t, this could be the result.
Yesterday we featured the Jaguiar, the zenith of Corvair engine swappage. This 283 + 4-speed Kelmark swap looks like fun, but the “everything but the glass” paint job isn’t doing it any favors. As the owner of a budget-painted Falcon, I’m not really one to talk…but damn. The wipers? Really?

    Eee-gads! If you think it looks funny now…give it a year, then we will really see how funny it will look. Can anybody say delamination?

    I had a 78 ElCamino with the all-over treatment in the early 90s. Right down to 60-series white-letter tires and white IROC rims.
    Wasn't so bad, really. I understand the urge, since chrome is so damn expensive.

    So if you don't have any help, does that mean you maskurbate?

    That's OK. This is an empty canvas. Give me a case of Sharpies to draw a rough outline, some masking tape, and a case of black Krylon and I'll give you a Zebrair.

    Sweet Jesus. This dude should paint the rims as well. Really complete the horror.

    There are three white cars in the photo up there… and in New Hampshire, I'd give any of them a second look. Sad, huh?
