Just finished painting this one last night, paint is House of Kolor black base, the usual traditional flame job and covered it in PPG Concept 2021 clear urethane.

Man I be happy just to get a solid color as nice as yours! Excellent work! Which wheels are you planning to use, I noticed two sets?

I guess that's not bad. You know, if you like a ridiculously super smooth black finish and crisply executed traditional flames. And Mustangs...you'd have to like Mustangs, too. :wink:

I lean towards the Billet rims,...do you have a painting service ?say if some one was to do the prep and send you the item for a couple weeks while you work your magic...and $ is right,....I like your flame style,..I like them when they cross each other,..Ghost flames are nice too ,do you do those ?,...
Excellent job.

Hey Brian, flame job looks great as usual. I have a question. I got me some of that Hobbico liquid mask and it's really thick. Will it mix to a more pourable consistency in the bottle if it's really shaken? Or do you just get a blob in your airbrush jar and thin and mix it like that?

Thanks Ray,

You can mix the Hobbico liquid mask with water, I mix mine to about the consistancy of milk. You want it pretty runny so it will flow through the airbrush, it also helps to filter it through a fine mesh or screen before you dump it in the airbrush so it doesn't get clogged. If you have any other questions feel free to ask.

Thanks
