Hello,

Not exactly in the home stretch yet, but getting there.
This is the C5 Z06 Grand Sport Tribute.
It's a 2004 so it IS a vintage car for me :D

I think this can be finished within the next 2 weeks or so. Yes, I'm slow and don't have as much time as I would like...

Thanks,

How did you get the stripes around the nose like that? I'm lucky if I can get a stripe on a flat surface. :D

Hello,

You are probably thinking it's a decal. But it is not. For the life of me I can't lay a decent decal even in a flat mirror. I hate decals, they hate me :D
That's all paint. In fact, this is my first two tone paint job.

The blue is Cobra Colors LeMans Blue and the white is Cobra Colors Arctic White, both Corvette factory colors.
It would have been way much easier to mask everything and shoot the white only once. Oh well, I learned the lesson.

Thanks,

All I can say is WOW. What type of tape are you using? It did not bleed anywhere. 8)

Thanks Richard. I use Tamiya tape. I love it! It is one of those products you ask "How did I live without this"

Thanks,
