Click on the link, and Dave has added comments below each picture in the slideshow, explaining how and what he did during each step.

BTW, could anyone provide measurements of the rear tires in this kit, please?


Thanks much, I missed that link! I saved the pictures and text for future reference. I have some of that Martha Stewart sparkly paint in orange, I actually got it to do my dune buggy that I wasn't getting the best results, turns out I was missing the corresponding base coat color. Now I can't wait to dive into it as there are some other mild custom cars I would like to do with this kind of paint.

It's a brush-on acrylic from Michaels or A.C. Moore, and I figured out a pretty neat system for application:

That's an awesome paint job on the dune buggy body as well as the motorcycle and the spoons. I have a Michaels close to me, what brand of paint is that? It really looks great and I've been looking for something like that for quite a while, especially if it brushes on.

I have used some of the different craft acrylics brand's and found some different techniques that work, it always does seem to be somewhat of a delicate paint though.

If you don't mind sharing, did you explain the technique you used to get that terrific smooth metal flake paint job please?
