    First, return the ab and compressor to Harbor Freight. It is a cheap setup. The return time is within 90 days?
     
    Visit the web site for TCP Global (Tri City Paint). Lots of great information and airbrush/compressor packages. Something to give you an idea of what to buy.
    This is the Paasche VLS dual airbrush  system I have.  Been using it since 2006. The compressor includes the air tank. It is QUIET and kicks-in (cycles) at long intervals.

    Also visit the Paasche web site to research airbrush's, compressors, accessories.

    Airbrushing takes practice. Lots of great advice in the previous posts.

    Steve, The 62 Catalina project looks great. What glue are you using to attach the brass to the resin.

    thanks

    Gregg, missing posts for 'WANTED' section ?
    Gregg, just viewed the WANTED posts and the posts from Feb 28 thru March 5 do not display.

    Have they been deleted or a possible server database issue.
    Thanks.

  11. davysmodels added a post in a topic PRIMER Shootout: Plastikote T-235 vs Dupont Nason 421-24   

    Visited NAPA the other day. They will not order Plastikote. Duplicolor only.
    Contacted Plasikote (Valspar), but Lowes does not have any requests to carry the 'PK' paints.
    Finally decided to order a few cans online from Amazon. Will replace the spray-nozzles or decant the primer (if needed).
    I found one location in National City, Ca that carries Plastikote, but it's a 90 mile drive.......TOOOOOOOO far. Amazon is closer and Free shipping.

    Hello Ron, Beautiful rebuild of the 68 GTO. Any chance you could post a copy of the instructions sheet for the 68 GTO. I am also in the process of a rebuild. Thank You.

    In my search to find Plasti-kote primers (T:235,236,237 and red oxide), i found this old post. If you live in the SoCAL area, Car Quest NO LONGER sells Plasti-Kote paints. New company owns CQ and now they only sell Duplicolor. I contacted Plasti-Kote and they had no retail referrals. Duplicolor
    must be offering all the auto parts stores a penny on the dollar to buy their paints.
    Plasti-kote is a great primer and it's a huge loss that it is not available.

    thanks for the info. Yes, all sold-out already. I did find one picture on the internet, but it was more of a angled front-to-back view. Need the straight-on side views. Hopefully someone has the model and will post a couple pics. Thank You.
