Title: W.I.P.s - Late Model Hoosiers
Post by: RacerRon13 on 05/24/17, 12:57 AM
Welllllll... the A.D.D. kicked in again. LOL

In the midst of painting some cars, I went off on a tangent again. This is something I've wanted to do for a number of years. So, a couple of years ago I started to take pictures of Late Model tires and wheels. The problem was in getting photos that were workable. Not only did I have to battle glare and shadows, but I also had to make sure my shots were straight on, or else it just wouldn't look right. Tonight I started throwing something together only to find out that I had parts of this already done. I still need to figure out why that little bit of black is around the circumference plus "spin" them. What do you think?

If you decide to share them, we can add them to the downloads.

Absolutely.  I just have to figure out where the black patches on the "tread" is coming from.

Ron, I was hoping there was a place to add treads.  But I think the whole area around the tire is tread I think.

I'll have to put a gray ring around the circumference and see what happens.

I think that is the tire bead. I wouldn't worry about it, it's supposed to be there.

I haven't been home much in the past two weeks.  So, needless to say, I haven't done any painting.  But, I did make it to Jennerstown this past Saturday and got decent shots of American Racers and McCrearys.  So, when I get but to this little project, I'll have a variety of tire and wheel combinations to post.
