Thank you! It was your build and how you guys put it together that set off a lot of light bulbs for me. I think I am going to stick with black. I am hoping the glossy finish will help with the lighting.I agree with lewlew! Haven't been on the forum in quite a while and just saw this thread. Your hearse is gorgeous! I like the variations you put into it. Having it break down will be one of the best things. We'll be getting ours out of storage and setting it up in the next couple days. Really looking forward to seeing yours come to life (or death, as the case may be)! My two cents on the color is that black is very traditional and lends an ominous look to the carriage, but it's a matter of personal preference. Strong work!
