the fleet......outside....

06 April 2014 - 12:47 PM

well, after what seems like a never ending winter, I went to the Spring Thaw Show in Utica NY today, was a great show with an incredible turn out, and I had a great time. when I got home, I thought it'd be a good time to take some outside pictures [before they went back into the display cabinet], so here they are in some actual sunshine :D

gettin 'depth' in a paint job

30 March 2014 - 02:31 AM

hello all, after looking at a couple hundred amazing builds on here, I got to wondering how to get more 'depth' on my paint work. after much trial and error, I am to the point of getting smooth paint and good clear coats with nice shine [and almost no dust/debris], but I do not know how to get the 'depth' I am wanting. is it a matter of more clear? or a ton of buffing/polishing? or both?

 

I've searched and didn't really find the answer I was looking for.

 

here is an example of my paint work, it just doesn't have the final look I'm after,
