    i think .. on this one ... you should choose one design and do the "panels" all the same .. it you go for a cool design like you showed on the wing ... stick with that .. the checkers also included make it to crowded imo ... just that orange and then make all the same panels and clear it .. would really pop i think !
    cool to see how you plaay with paint techniques ... jut like on the other build you did with the gulf theme

    i washed the rear window with a grey wash from lavado , this gave it a realistic look and lookss like a lot of pics i saw of weathered windows ...
    now its hard to get on a picture it kind of light up too much .. like on thiss shot .. wierd look >

    this shows it better but irl it looks better ...its got a stained look and is a tad see through ... it becomes real matte and make the windows look aged and dirty

    then decided i liked this look more then the smashed window i found one window that fit but it was broken in two pieces .. so i just glued it in with the crack
    then i got a cool idea and glued a for sale sign on the dash

    so it just shows through the wash , atm i gave the window a second wash (looks better after 2 layers) and then rubbed it off partially where the sign is so it looks like people cleaned the window to read the sign (will make pics later)

    then some pics with my gasser it kind of comess out nice next to the shiny charger

    thnx mack !
     
    and if you ook back at pics there are quite a few dents in the body overall , passenger door has a massive dent , passenger side front wing has a dent , driersides wing has a dent on top of the wing , the rear wheel well is ll out of shape and dented in at the bottom , drivers side door has a dent ..ooh and the whle roof is dent in in 2 sot ... i just didnt want to overdo it some are small and 2 are bigger .
     i figured if i would really bang it up like crazy it would be overkill ...and now it looks kind of restorable ...

    thnx guys !
    well thats what i tried , putting the hood on the roof and that looked cool as well .. i'm more of a make a decision and glue it together person , rather then making it removable .. for me on a weathered build its key to make it all one piece and after the last layers and pigments i dont have to hande it a lot anymore ..
    putting the hood against the car looked weird its kind of tall ....  and yes def. want to do the shreddded vinyl top .. thats why i left the roof rust and didnt paint it like the sides .. it needs a lighter rone of rust on the roof to take the color away from the orange weathered paint , then i want to make a vinyl to and peel it off artially
    its a lot of fun , i also still have some incomplete kits / cars in boxes so i'm thinking of doing a bunch of them ...just fun building these and going crazy .. and you can do this in all kind of stages , like still drivable to what i have a junker ripped for parts
