before throwing it into the stripper, i would try to polish out those overspray areas. its worth a try and unless im not seeing real problem spots, they look simple enough to have at least half a chance. looks great if you ask me. really nice work on the rest too, excellent job on those distributors! i didnt know these cars had dual ignition systems (not that up on mopar honestly), but that will make for a great nest of snakes on top of the motor!

The paint does look Great.
Maybe alittle buffing will take a way some of the bleed thru?
Black wash the cowl grill?

Still looks great and I'm sure the 1:1 wasn't Perfect either.
It was a Race car after all.
gives it some character?

oldscool - The suspension is out of the box. All I did was cover the top frame with some thin styrene.

Brian - I just used a # 76 drill bit to drill the distributor.

Thanks to everyone who commented and looked , PROSTOCKHEMI Rocks ! That was one of the sites that motivated me back to wanting to build Pro Stocks. :lol:

I have been getting the paint on but I blew it on the last color. I forgot to go back and burnish down the masking tape and had a few bleeders. (Sail panels and cowl grill) B)

Roger maybe there is a gremlin with the Duster

Anyway I am trying to decide whether to touch up the bleed troughs or put it in the stripper bath and try again.

Comments and suggestions always welcome - a guy has to learn somehow ;)


Sean

Just touch it up,that paint job looks to nice to strip,and the only flaw I can see is where the Blue meets the White on the B pillers,mask the blue,and lightly sand that area and blend the white in that area,It looks really nice as is...I have the 73 MPC kit to paint,and I'm waiting till I have enough time to paint it,Plus I'm leary on painting a $100 Kit!.............Steve Ketterer

Looking really good!
Like others here and as I am doing, try touching up first and then if you are not happy off the the purple pool. :unsure:
When you drilled the distributors what type of vise and magnifier do you like to use. I tried to drill them but just could not see well enough. You did an outstanding job.

Looks good man. Just a tip for future reference whenever you are doing a multi color paint job. I always lay a clearcoat in between colors. In other words after your first color and it has cured completely, shoot a layer of clear down, doesn't have to be real thick, then after it's cured well, mask off and shoot you next color. The reason for this is in case you do have any bleed over, you can hit that spot with either a polish compound or sandpaper grit of around 1500 to 2000 and wetsand lightly those spots. It may seem like more work but it actually is easier than stripping and going through all that hassle. I've not had to dip a body in many years. The only thing to watch for is the compatiblility of the types of paint your using. Such as staying with laquer on all coats or enamel or whatever you used. Hope this helps !!  :rolleyes:

Nice work and the blue color looks the best I've ever seen for a S&M model. What colors did you use?

What a great project and great work you've done on it Sean, as I happen to know the current owner of the car and have sat in it also. No, I didn't get to drive it. LOL!
