    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. If it doesn't, I'll push the maintenance back to Saturday, 2 December.

    Battery detailing?
    How is everybody adding battery posts and clamps to their builds? I have the correct wire now it's just finding out how to attatch them without looking like they're just glued on.

  3. Jeff31293 added a post in a topic Harbor freight airbrush will not spray   

    So I wasn't able to fix the problem although I have no clue what it was. I took it completely apart and gave it a good cleaning. I still wasn't getting any spray so I removed all of the teflon tape I put on with the intention on never using it again. I decided to try one more time and was able to spray water. So I hooked up some paint and got a very weak spray. Thinned my paint out a little and it finally worked. I was able to at least finish the body of the current gmc suburban I'm working on. Now it's off to the store tomorrow to get a new regulator so I don't have to spray at 50 psi lol. Thank you all for your help!!

    Probably just gonna bite the bullet on this one and get something a little better. Chalking it up as a lesson learned.

    I get air coming out no problem but no paint. When I look in the paint cup...it bubbles. No clue if that means anything.

    Harbor freight airbrush will not spray
    Picked up a cheap harbor freight airbrush kit (I know I know). It's a siphon feed airbrush and I can't get the darn thing to spray. It sprayed a little bit the other night but it will not even spray water. Anybody experience similar issues? I've double checked all the seals and even put teflon tape on to gurantee no leaks. Any suggestions would be helpful.

    Finished this one up today. Really had fun with the build and look forward to doing another gasser type car.

    First attempt at rusting went ok. Not perfect but I'm happy with the results.

    53 Ford rustbucket
    Gonna give weathering a shot on this 53 Ford pickup. It's going to be a work truck and I'll be going with the salting technique over this rust colored primer.

    Bottom of the chasis is just about finished. Had some issues with the paint on the interior so had to restart that part.

    Final coats of paint finished before the clear coat is applied. 
     
    Only going to have one bucket seat inside painted to match. Going with a purple and gold theme here. 
     
     
    Mocking up the suspension under the frame to familiarize myself with the assembly.

    1970 barracuda
    Third ever build was a 1970 Plymouth barracuda. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. Missed some spots with paint in the engine since I don't have an airburish. There's also a very small gap at the top of the windshield but I'll take it. On to the next one.
