Topics I've Started

raised letters

11 June 2013 - 06:59 AM

I'm have a build that I've been working on here and there for a while and I decided to dig it out and work on it.  It is an Alfa Romeo and has "Alfa Romeo" in raised script on the valve covers.  I have already painted the engine, heads, etc but I was just wondering what some of the methods would be for painting the raised lettering? 

 

Thanks in advance for any and all contributions.

 

I have included a picture of what I'm referring to...

Make your own "glass" fuel filter

Here's a quick and dirty How To on making your own glass fuel filters as shown in the picture below.

The materials needed are:  wire that you are using for fuel line ( i used red in the above example and in the how to), #0 crimp beads (the ones that I used are Beadalon brand that I got from Michaels), glass "tube" bead (i got them from michaels but don't remember the brand name), and glue ( i used superglue, but most glues should work)

 

step 1:  put the beads on the wire...crimp bead, tube bead, crimp bead.

step 2: glue first crimp bead on the wire would you want it to be, followed by glueing the tube bead, and finally the other crimp bead.
