How does it look? Hmmm..... get rid of the square headlights for some round ones. LOL just kidding. I think I'd clean up the center section like Limey said to make it look like two separate buckets.

I love gloss black, but you have to have contrast in certian areas to make it balance out. If the contrast is chrome, that is good, if it is an alternate color or stripes, thats also good. One thing I don't like is a big black glob of something coming at you. The pic with the black front bumper on the Elky does not look bad, and that is not usually the way I think. There is a fellow locally who has a mid 70s Elky who has it painted gloss black with stock chrome and it looks great. It does not have the big slab of chrome on the side that my Classic has and I like it better without it. This fellow made one big mistake, he painted EVERYTHING under the hood (except the engine) gloss black and it looks terrible. There is a car show today and I am stuck home with no way to go, sniff, sniff. JB
