1. Anyone make their own BWFs?
2. Do you start with a black car, or it doesn't matter?
3. Would these be considered "real" BWFs or "fake" BWFs?

Just curious as I bought some extra new black Jada Manxsters to experiment with...

(This is here cuz it seems like all the BWF'ers hang out here.)


(BWF'er sounds kind of naughty doesn't it?) :p

regarding Black With Flames;


Radical Decals is a good source for adding water slide, FLAME decals.

They are easy to apply and you can clearcoat over them.

There are also flame masks available from t3cochise that are really great, if you want to airbrush/paint them yourself.
Plus,they can be re-used on other customs.
this guys stuff is incredible!

As I've said before, my idea of "customizing" is opening a blister.

I would think so, but wouldn't really know (see answer 1)

Neither. These would be considered "custom" BWF's, and are fully recognized as such by the famed Hobby Talk Johnny Lightning Black With Flames Committee.

There are many talented people here on HT who have done some first rate custom BWFs, and I've been lucky enough to receive more than my share of these, from many many talented members of this board.

At some point, I'll see if I can get the Carnut Johnny Lightning Museum and Bar & Grill BWF Wing to get their collection of custom JL BWFs together for a group photo, now that I have a BWF Burch hauler to transport them with :thumbsup:

For the record, we don't know how other BWF collections are organized, but we ourselves here at the CNJLMandB&G-BWFW hold to the Official BWF Committee standards of:

Official "In Series" Street Freak BWFs
Unofficial "Out of Series" JL BWF's
Custom JL BWFs
Non-JL BWFs
Non-JL Custom BWFs
Any old thing on fire

By the way, there is a heated (excuse the pun!) battle going on behind the scenes right now at The Carnut Johnny Lightning Museum and Bar & Grill (a name that originated from our own Stupid Squirrel, I might add) between the PIP Wing and the BWF Wing, over the proper classification of the infamous "Toasted Rivvy".

Members of the CNJLMandB&G BWF Board of Directors are suggesting that the "Toasted Rivvy" is the end result of the ultimate BWF, even though the car - underneath all that black soot - is actually brown, er, cream, er awww who the heck knows what it was anymore!! Regardless, the PIP Wing holds possession, and is telling the BWF Wing "nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah!!!" :tongue: :tongue: :tongue:

Being a fair and logical man, I must side with the PIP's. The car never was a BWF and it's condition now is undeniably Pipiful. You cannot take a VIN tag from a Ferrari, put it on a Pinto and call the Pinto a Ferrari. However, you can bludgeon, burn, hammer, paint, stomp on and generally destroy a Pinto and it will still be a Pinto! It's all about genetics, man. :dude:
