See It Before You Paint It!
Have you ever had to rely on a paint chip or artist's rendering to get an idea of what your actual hot rod or custom would look like after it's painted? Now, with InstaColor Pre-Paint Preview Service, you can actually see any color and/or graphics on your specific vehicle before buying the paint or having the paint job done. This new service can be used to create and preview any vehicle in any color, including multi-color paint schemes and graphics such as flames, scallops, fades, lettering, logos, two-tones, murals, and more.

"The process is fairly simple," explains Sam Harmon, creator of InstaColor. "All we need is a quality front 3/4 image of the vehicle, with a list of colors the customer would like to see it painted in. Within 48 hours, we can send back high-end photo proofs of the vehicle with the new colors requested, sending them either by standard mail or instantaneously over the Internet. We could even change the colors and E-mail images while talking on the phone to the customer!

"The feedback from builders and owners of some very famous show cars has been very positive, with appreciation for the realism and versatility of the finished proofs," said Harmon. "Our research came from working with photos of show cars, such as Dave Hall's incredible blue 'NewMad' and Ron Whiteside's Chip Foose-designed '34 Mercury coupe. We wrapped the photos in a multitude of mild and wild color variations. It was amazing to see the personalities of these famous rides change so dramatically by applying different paint schemes to them, and so quickly."
