so heres the new plan........"SATIN PEBBLE" and the paint will be done like "ol smoothie" sanded through to the primer here and there, and some light surface rust....

it looks a little rough in the pics, but its not, its pretty smooth. wont matter anyways its gonna get sanded...

the interior and frame/engine will all be nice and clean, just the body will be kinda crusty....

more to come

heres the techniqiue i use to get that "worn out" paint look.........i lightly sand it with some 1000 grit, and then some 2000......being careful to not cut through the primer, once it is weathered it will look like faded/worn paint....
