Must echo everyone elses comments. Great paint. Watson customs are one of my favorite eras in kustom history. How can you go wrong with a slam, dechroming, and some truly inspired gun work? You channeled his spirit with this one for sure!

I have an October 1958 Rod & Custom Magazine with Watson's T-Bird in an article called "58's After Surgery"!

Thanks for the kind of words everybody :D

I like SHINY :) :) :) ! But, please, tell me how you were able to get the thin line around the panels. Amazing painting.


The trick is to paint the color of the outlining first, then you draw the panels with very thin masking tape ;)

I came across this tonight and it reminded me of your build, thought it was really cool. Have to say, I think I'm diggin your paint choices a little more. Anymore progress?
