Thanks Christopher, Andy and Mark for your ideas. Since I intend to repaint, foil and detail the promo, I will be soaking all the paint off, re-plating the chrome and starting from scratch as if it were a kit. I just hope all that white (probably Testors enamel) will do the right thing and disappear. Here's a promo I re-did a couple of years ago:
This 69 Pontiac arrived from USA today. I was pleased to get it at a (fairly) affordable price but a bit disappointed to discover the roof has been very thickly brush painted. (It looked to me like a factory coat in the auction photos.) Just hope it comes off with the normal methods. I LOVE 60s Ponchos and keep telling myself that I have enough of them - but myself doesn't seem to hear.
Yesterday I heard a short interview with Jack Black, who was in Zürich to promote his new film. The interviewer complimented him on something and Jack answered with, "Danke". Interviewer: "Ah, you speak German?" Jack: "Just the one word." Interviewer: "A very important word though. Not that many German speakers know it."
