Do you heat your cans of paint or decant and airbrush?
Yes, and no...
I live in a warm part of the country, so I don't have to heat them unless I'm getting to the bottom of a can, or it is colder than normal. I do decant and airbrush, but also spray from the can. Kind of like shooting with a full size gun and a touch up gun at the same time.

As you can see, the hood is whiter, and truth be told it is what I would have preferred, but it's easier by far to adjust the tint of the hood.
I knocked the clear on the hood down with 1200 and mixed a new batch of pearl white by eyeball with the “yellow” thinner and airbrushed it.
Then clear coated it. I really thinned the clear out this time. 3 parts reducer instead of 2 like the rest of the car, the clear doesn’t even need reducer. I put on four light coats with 20 minutes flash time between them to get a thin yet deep enough look.
Only a little one day delay. Now I am back on track…

And installed into the completed interior…
Valve covers are done and the decals have been applied to the calipers…
Some underhood details too…
And the rear wings… One for “up” and one for “down” positions.

Once the decals dry, it will be waxed and have the windows installed and put onto the chassis and interior.

It is somewhat of a shame that so much of the chassis detail is covered up by the belly pans. So one last look to see the detail parts before they go into hiding…
