Okay, so I was exchanging info on some recent acquisitions with another member here (hell, alright, it was Paly!) and the conversation turned to the car paints that have been available.  Information is all over the place on this, so I decided to try to consolidate it here.  So, I looked through the postings in the Bulldog Skates forum, as well as the Car Paint thread in the Collector’s Corner.Not exactly Sherlock Holmesian skills required, but just a little patience and time.

This is my attempt to list the various car paint decks that Wes has produced.  Some of them were released through the normal sale thread posted up by Wes and some were more restricted or limited issue versions.  Some were done for art exhibits.  Along with this, I’ve listed what I believe to be the mold of the deck, when (or approximately) they were available, and in some cases, the color options and the number produced in a given run.

I thought this would be a good start and also nice to have the info together.  To that end, if there is anything incorrect, by all means, please reply here or send me a PM.  If you have some info on parts I’m missing, please send it along.  Some of this was my best guess and therefore will likely contain errors.Apologies in advance for that.  Don’t have a fit about it, just let me know and I’ll make an update.  This is a work in progress and I would appreciate your efforts at helping make this as helpful as possible.

I am in no way trying to replace the car paint collector thread, so if this is better off there, as there are so many awesome pictures there already, I certainly have no problem moving it there.

Anyway, thanks for looking and enjoy.I’ve often asked, so I figured others may be interested.

Where's the CP thread? The one I looked through didn't have many photos so I'm probably not looking in the right place.

Thanks.  I'll do a little more digging around this weekend as I'd also like to know more about the limited release decks.  Just threw those names in the list in no particular order.  The only thing I have to go on for those is pictures from guys ho got them, which doesn't tell the whole story.  Although it might provide a rough release date and some of the colors, etc. 

So, seeking information from anyone willing to share...

How about the limited wood "car paint" graphics, I believe those were 1 of 5.

and the limited decks, off the top of my head there is the winged body builder.

Good....keep the info and suggestions flowing fellas.  This is what I was hoping for and obviously what was needed as some of this was from memory (FWIW), so anything you can pass along is helpful and appreciated.  I'll gladly make updates, and Nick, I should be able to scale down the pix and add those as well.  I don't have them all (damn it!!), so I can borrow pix from others who have posted up around here.  Hank, I hate to break the bad news to you....(thanks!).

Nicely done Mike.
I believe that I posted many pics in the CP Corner.
Used to know the release dates, but did not keep track......

yes mike it would be good to be able to come to this thread and see pics,the amount made,colour options etc all at the beginning of the thread instead of having to trawl through tons of pages and finding pics here and there and loads of old deleted ones etc,i love the car paints so this idea is spot on for me anyway

This thread should definitely be in Collectors Corner. Can someone move it please.
There were 8 Sacred Heart CP's and it was the first.
My Gas Mask deck is metallic Orange.
Apart from the numbered Gamblers there were 5-6 that were pinstriped by Dan.
