Just completed this puppy. I primed with Platicote grey primer and shot some decanted colorshift blue/purple over that, and then clear. That's real wood in the bed. The 6 cylinder engine came out and I stuffed one of my BB 427 Chevy castings and valve covers in its' place. I made a console for the interior with a couple of my casted seats. Hope you like it.

Jim, that is really nice...I love the color-shift paint and the interior is really sharp looking (the seats look great). Looking good!

Hey Jim,

This looks just great, I think the interior looks fantastic, paint is SHINY just the way you like it. Is the paint Plastikote too? I like the colorshift, haven't tried it before, but this is inspiring me big time. The wood in the bed is a really nice touch as well, just a sweet and clean build....oh, and did I mention it's SHINY? Very very nice Jim, thanks for posting.

Mike

Hey thank you very much folks. The paint is Rustoleum Colorshift from Lowe's. The can says to shoot over a black base. My spoon test shows a whole different tune when sprayed over grey, like this build. I decant the Colorshift paint so it goes through the airbrush.

Thank you. In the near future I'm going to use the Colorshift paint over a white basecoat. It looks pretty cool on a spoon.
