So, I gathered up the pieces I had that I can paint that bolt onto the chassis. It's easier to paint things individually, rather than when I am trying to paint the frame as a complete unit.
I tried something that I thought would look good. I had drilled my front axle and polished the web to a high luster. I thought it would be cool to paint the axle black with the web painted ivory to match the accent color. Boy was I wrong. Tragically wrong.
I primered the axle and back taped the areas I wanted in the ivory color. It ended up looking like something from a 1950's western.
So, after conferring with a couple of my hot rod buddies that are always brutally honest, I decided to abort the whole idea. Black is always safe.
