I love both sides of the Camino and the 409 looks awesome too.

The next time I comment on a beautiful, clean, detailed, awesome build, I think I'll just say, "that is so PeeKay!". :D

 

By the way, what method did you use to get the "El Camino" scripts so sharp?

Thanks for further comments.

By the way, what method did you use to get the "El Camino" scripts so sharp?

This is the "BMF Before Paint" method, as described by Marcos Cruz in his Opel Gt post (scroll down in Under Glass).
This works particularly well with the Zero base coats I used here, which go on thinly but cover quite well. The script is then carefully exposed before the heavier clear coats. Also, the script on this model is particularly well molded which worked to my advantage.

Thank you, Peter.  I've read about this method before but haven't tried it yet.  Seeing the results you obtained with it, I think I'll give it a try on the next one.
