As is the case with most anything you build, the finished product is only going to be as good as the foundation that you start with. If you've never stripped a car before, they don't just magically shed their skin, reveally pristine, bare cast metal like this. It takes some work to get them to this point. Always impressed to see a glistening donor with zero clues indicating that it was once something else. It makes such a difference from that point forward. Great start, @Mike KB-41.

Pretty good? Killer queen, actually, although this color combination has now put Little Red Corvette in my head. Thank you very much. Looks like a nice, clean mask line. Again, it's very easy to screw up an otherwise good paint job with this step. Bleeding under the tape, bad masking overspray, paint too thick causing a thick transition step. Looks like you've avoided each of those issues.. Can't wait to see more.

Thanks for the feedback. Like most things there are a flaw or two in the masking lines but knowing when to just call it good or try to fix it & potentially screw the whole thing up is key as you know..

First time I have ever tried doing this & i'm very happy with the way it came out, i'm doing the last little bit of painting now. It's proving to be somewhat more difficult that the whole car was. lol



Looking good Mike. Any hints?
Thanks Don.. Hints? No, no hints but I think you just might like it. ;)
