Thanks Martin.
I did alot of research and watched many youtube videos before I attempted using the airbrush.Which helped big time.
Yeah the whole body is getting done,Im currently working on the sides,should be done in a few days.

Just a suggestion before you do some tape and paint work on the Monte,find some spare bonnets/hoods and have some practice on them first.

alright, here's an update.

the trunk mural is going to be the evil leprechaun.

this is only a progress photo.

i need to touch up on the hat and get it perfected. once i get the hat done, i'll slowly work in the building up of the hands and shoulder areas. once it's final then i'll start foiling and clear coat.

i also did another coat for the bottom of the hood to tie it all together.

the paint may look a little bumpy but after clear it'll be smooth as glass.

I ventured into adding some scallops to the roof.
The round tape was cut using a paper hole puncher.
