Theme Tuesdays: Chameleon Finishes

3

Do you remember the first time you saw a Chameleon finish? Twelve or so years ago –also known as flip flop paint jobs at that time– they were brand spakin’ new and very seldom seen.

Then it got to a point where you couldn’t go to a show without seeing some version of the multicolored, fairly expensive paint.

Now things have normalized again to where you don’t see them all the time, and the ones you do see are typically done pretty damn well be it dip, wrap, or traditional paint.

I’ve always been a fan of the finish but it certainly doesn’t work on ever car, however I think it works pretty damn well on the cars below.

 

I should have taken more photos of this truck...
Wind the clock back to SEMA 2012.. loved this truck

The color change on Galen’s fit is a little very subtle but I’ve always liked it
