    1950 Chevy Truck, W.I.P. Built
    Here is a 1950 Chevy Truck that i built as a work in progress truck/daily. I've seen a couple 1:1s like these and decided why not build one, but for some reason i think this one took longer to build then one those that i've built with full paint and gloss!
     
    Red primer with touch ups and bondo spots, custom made spare tire fender and spare tire carrier, dropped stock suspension, custom made 560 white walls, custom made from bumper cattle guard, custom made step board luggage carrier, and a bunch of other misc items.

    Ok so the wife is at walmart and found the PLEDGE WITH THE BOOTS on it and is bringing it home tonight. Gonna give this a shot on a test body and see how well it works

    For those using brushes what and pics of the one to use works best to brush it on?

    the fog lights i had in my parts box, but i believe they came from either the 39 chevy panel lowrider kit or the 39 lowrider coupe kit. I've used fog lights from those kits before and work great.




    Thanks again all for the compliments

    Thanks for the info and pics, so will it go over any paints like duplicolor, rust oleum, model master, testors and Tamyia paints?

    Also I don't use airbrush so as applying coats is it the same time period as using a fan brush ?
  14. 408calirides added a post in a topic Using Pledge Floor Care Tile & Vinyl Floor Finish with Future Shine   

    So I've read this whole topic and got some info and pros and cons. I'm staring to hate the rattle can clears as recently just been having some issues and would like to give this a try.

    I'm trying to understand those who've said that they've lost interest in it as using pledge as a clear coat, why?

    Does it not give you a quality car show gloss finish?
    How many coats can you apply & wait time before next coat?
    Can you mask over it, example say you want to dull coat a vinyl top once you clear coat the body.
    Can you BMF after?
    I use rattle cans on all my models and some times clear coating is the sketchy job cus of the nice pattern work or paint you have as a base that you don't want to ruin. If this methods works and someone can answer my questions above I'll give it a shot.

    Plus any recent clear pics would be helpfull too.
