You do some killer paint jobs. I'm wondering if you could describe your process, tools, paint systems, etc . . . if you don't mind.

I especially like the gradated orange on the sides. Very subtle.

That paintjob looks freaking awesome! Great color combos and it's smooth and shiny too. Wheels look really realistic, great to see something different build from Chevrolet Pickup. That grille doesn't fit to my eye perfectly, and there are some other 70's equipment, which aren't so nice, but those doesn't matter since this is built 70's style. Great job with it.
