  2. Bill thank you for posting your builds here again. I always enjoy seeing your work. you had mentioned earlier somthing about embosing powder for you carpeting? what exactly is embosing powder? and where can it be found? does it come in colors or do you paint it? from the looks of it its alot better looking than flocking. Your Olds build is looking great so far im looking forward too seeing more. thanks again Bud Ellis Kustoms

  5. Hello All , Im buiding a 1/25 scale 1970 Ls6 Chevelle SS. It will be Black with White SS strips on the hood and trunk. I fear that the black will bleed thru after the decals are put on? I can paint on the strips but the fine stripe around the outside edges will be difficult too do. should I double decal the stripes? or can sombody make me some good quality white SS strips that will cover the black with out bleed thru? any help and suggestion will be very apprecaitive thanks for your time....

  9. harry P is correct basecoats are used first especially with kandy colors . Gold , Silver, copper all give a kandy color a differant hue when used for base coats The kandy color is transperant and you will see the tinted basecoats underneeth Most all full size paints are now acryilic or ureathein when using any especialially automotive paint its very important too use a resperator cuz the paint fumes will cryslize your lungs and thats not good, The pluse side of using these type paints is fast drying time some as early as 20 minuets befor apling top coats try that with enamels hahahah good luck with your painting endeavers Bud Ellis Kustoms
