    '57 Chevy cameo pick up
    So I havnt built anything for about 4 years. I started missing the time consuming love and pain of custom building. So I dug out a '57 chevy cameo. I am almost finished with the "chopped top", this is this first time Ive ever chopped anything. So far everything is going smoothly. I will post pics hopefully tomorrow around this time. Like I said its been a while and this is my first tim using a big amount of putty. What grit sand paper should I use to sand the putty once its dried and also what grit for the paint so I can wet sand?

    Thank you all for the great ideas!! I ended up deciding to just take a 57 cameo pickup and choppin the top. Im in the semi final stages of that now. Ill try and post pics soon. But as for my wet sand what grit should I use?

    Right on thanks! Ive tried some rattle cans but I cant seem to get that "REAL" car look from them. Should I wet sand or anything before clearcoat or after clear?

    Hi everyone!! So first off Id like to say Im a newbie here and love what you guys are doing. Ive seen that someone has already posted on paint, but my question is different I guess. In the past Iv had my buddy at a bodyshop paint all of my cars. Well he dosnt work there anymore and Id like to be able to paint my cars like he did. Where should I start? I dont have a compressor or gun, also I live in the an apt. so not to much room to paint.

    Well any suggestions would be great.
