Hemi Orange on a Scorpion?

Postby theozsnowman » Sat Sep 14, 2013 4:54 pm

I'm wondering if anyone has seen a Scorpion done up in Hemi Orange?

I'm contemplating the idea on on one of mine that I'm restoring, but am unsure how it will look...

anyone seen any photos of any done in this color.,.. had a look on Google but didnt really find anything...

was contemplating giving it the SRT challenger style stripes as well but cant decide on

Image

or on

Image

as the style of the striping etc...

any thoughts or suggestions?

I like the ideal, but I would take what you are thinking and make it suit the Scorpion shape.

How are these for side strips?

You could end up with something like this?

I get what he's tried to achieve, and I give him props for doing it.
Some might like it, but I am not a 100% fan (I don't hate it BTW).
But the stripes don't suit because they are made to suit a Charger, not a Galant.

Take the idea you have, make sure they suit the shape of what you are putting it on, and you will have a winner :thumpsup:

The GE/H Scorpions were available in a redy orange that looks cool.
My very first Scorpion was the same as this one, same wheels but no decals

Stock one

Hi theozsnowman,
Maybe Photoshop can help you decide whether Hemi-orange suits a scorpion..

Before..
Image

After..
Image

As far as bonnet stripes or large pin-striping down the sides go, i couldn't get them to look right on the scorpion. It's possible if you spent a couple of hours fine tuning you could get something OK, but basically a thin pin-stripe near the top of the guard, or some variation of it is more likely to work.

Below, I've made a few different combinations just to give you an idea what to expect.

Personally, i like the last two the best.

I like this one, in orange too. Much better than the full blacked out bonnet.

The bonnet on my Scorpion is a little faded and it is a custom colour so I wasn't sure what to do with it. I am pretty sure I will black it out like this in a satin black. Think I will round the edges and maybe a pin stripe outer edge :D

why not do a black wrap on the bonnet... ive seen some carbon fibre ones and they actually look quite good and cheaper than respraying.. and if you dont like it you rip it off and try somethgn different

I think I like the coloured parts. If it was all one colour I think it would look a bit try hard or maybe an unpainted replacement bonnet :P

What about this design (hood,roof,trunk), but customized to Scorpion?

@ddt:
Can you photoshop a Scorpion into color of this Mustang, I found via Google? Next year my third Scorpion gets new painting, thinking about using this color (dark silver grey w/ little bit of brown):

Could be very helpful .. thx a lot ;-)

I think the gun metal grey will look tough on a Scorpion

Hi Galant74Lambda,
hopefully this gives you an idea..
I think with light colours, scorpions really need some kind of pin striping but doesn't seem so necessary with darker colours.

Yep, no worries,
I think it looks pretty tough with the thicker double pin-stripe..

i think its the wheels that make the Scorp look tough

Some colours look better than others.....but the wheels and the cars stance are what have set that look right IMO


None the less....be great to see what u come up with as an end result

Those rims on that scorpion that ddt photoshopped for me have been growing on me.... Anyone know what they are?

Having a tough time trying to work out what to fit not to mention find that fits the 4 stud setup...

I've got a set of dragways for my blue bitch project but the orange one I really wouldn't mind going low profile with a 15 or something if I can find something ...the black rim looks good

If im not mistaken those wheels in the last pic are Watanabe's/Minilites/Rota RB/Rota RB-X etc. What i plan to put on the LC if i can find a decent set of genuine watanabes that wont cost me my first born child.
