Another stunner from Tulio.  How did you get the 'Buick' and 'Electra 225' so clean and shiny?  I'd swear I was looking at a photo of the real car.  Amazing!

Thanks guys!!

 

Sorry, I wasn't online to see your question Don, but my friend Harry answered for me.

Thanks Harry!!

 

Talking about Harry, hey Harry, it has a mirror!!! :lol:

 

The trick I did with the BMF on the lettering, only works this way (polishing the paint out) with solid colors!!!! This is very important.

If you are going to use this trick with a metallic color, polishing can and will cause stains, and they won't go away. 

For metallic paint, you have to apply the foil on the lettering, leaving the least foil possible around the area, AFTER all body work and primer has being done. Apply the color coat like you always do, and when dry, use a tooth pick with the point wet in thinner to remove the paint from the letters only. After that you can clear coat the body like you always do.
