With at least 2 more Customs on the drawing table for my ongoing Route 66 Series in Candy Pagan Gold and Limetime Pearl , here is piece #3, the Jada Divco Cruizer.
First was the Jada Oil Tanker followed by the Jada Silverado Dualley PickUp, both in the same color scheme and Custom graphics seen here in the Divco.
Stripped, filed free of all imperfections, sanded and rubbed down with #3 Steel Wool.
Primed, the fenders are shot LimeTime Green and then Intercoat cleared and taped,

Except for the Roof all tape is removed and the whole thing is shot Candy Pagan Gold with Bright Yellow Pearl Powder.

Neat! This one looks like ts moving when it's standing still.
Thanks RMVW Guy,
I put a forward slant to both left and ride side panel window logo's.
What scale is that? I've never seen that particular Jada model. It IS die cast, yes? BEAUTIFUL paint job!!!!
Unless I say different everything I work with is usually 1/64.
Yes, most all my projects are metal (Zamac) DieCast.
HotWheels Collectors are crazy for the Dairy Delivery and when Jada Toys came out with their line of DieCast they included these similar Divco Milk Truck versions to compete.
