I haven't made my decision about the rear stripes, but I was able to do the front in the meantime. The decals were a definite no-go, so I reluctantly masked off the stripes, praying that I would do a better job than last time. They're not completely perfect, but they're about as perfect as I could ever hope to get them! I used Tamiya TS-29 semi-gloss black because I've noticed that I tend to have better luck getting flat or matte colors to lay down smoother than gloss colors. Plus, it'll get probably another 2 coats of clear over it. I've heard good things about Rustoleum automotive lacquer clear coat, product #253366.

 

 

:o

Those look fantastic!! What kind of tape did you use?

Thanks guys! I couldn't be more pleased with how they came out. Hawk, I used good old Tamiya tape. I've never used any other kind, but as far as I'm concerned it's the best thing out there. What did you use for all of yours? They all came out just as good or better!

The stripes are amazing! You gotta do the rear stripes too.I bet it's super tedious but the concentration and time I bet you put into them shows!

I am stuck with the blue 3M tape, which works ok for me, but you really need to make sure it is burnished down good. I agree Tamiya is much better, but it is a little hard to come by in my area and with my schedule.

Thank you so much everyone! I hate to keep people in suspense, but I got sidetracked today with an old cuckoo clock my grandmother gave me. Tinkering with clocks is sort of another hobby of mine, along with playing the trumpet and arranging music. So if I'm not working on a model, there's a good chance I'll be doing any of those things. I might have time to do the rear stripes tomorrow, but I won't make any promises.

Ok guys, here she is. I just used the decals for the back since everything is so flat. They laid down just fine.

Sorry this isn't an update, just a couple better pictures taken in my photo booth. Hopefully I'll be able to get a couple coats of clear on it soon.

Those strips look great from where I am, I thought they were decals.  I will send my next stripping job to you, that way you can do a bad job on them to.

I got the last of the clear coat on her last week and got her all polished up.  She's not perfect, but probably closer to the factory stock finish I want than one that's been over-restored. I guess I probably start working on the interior some time soon, then.
