    This is the first I've even heard of this brand of paint. Can anyone expand on this?

    I can only answer your question limited as I don't have the other colors to compare, but I love TS-94 Metallic Grey and I use it often for metallic parts as an alternate to Metalizers. I wouldn't hesitate to get this paint as it has become one of my staple colors. It is lighter than any gunmetals I have any is a medium grey.

    It's deceiving how much work something like this can be .. and yours is looking good!
     
    I saved the photo with the aluminum air box as reference for the door of my Cannonball Run Ferrari ..

    A few update pics on the Ferrari 250 GTO.  More photos are on my build thread

    The engine, chassis and interior are done except for a little paint touch ups noticed in these photos.
     





     
    The body needed some rust, but being aluminum I decided to try some corrosion on an unpainted door. It's not perfect but I think it will do. I used flat aluminum first on the door them some steel dabbed around. Some very light grey in lower corroded areas with some actual dirt dropped on the wet pain. Finally some flat white dry brushed on the grey.
    What does everyone think of the look?

    Welcome Robert and it's good to see some young blood adding to the forum. Don't be afraid to show us what ya got, we have all levels of builders here and we all like to show our work.

    Thanks for relating your experience with using a dehydrator to heat spray cans, Pete! If you've been doing it for15 years it's a pretty safe bet it works.
  9. Foxer added a post in a topic Warming paint cans.   

    I always went upstairs from my basement workshop to get some hot water in a pan to warm paint cans, but I just got a dehydrator and am considering using it to warm spray cans as it's next to my paint booth and more convenient, not to mention seemingly more efficient at warming.
     
    Has anyone used a dehydrator to warm spray cans and are there any dangers to it?

    I think I'm in about all those photos!  eheh

    eheh .. It wasn't meant as a slam on you ... your build is beautiful and I do like the looks of '65 Fords. As for being just a model, no model is just a model to many of us as they reflect what we like in 1:1 vehicles. Most of my builds seem to gravitate towards cars I've owned ... I even have a '65 Galaxie here waiting to become my Dad's car! I still never want to be behind wheel of one again.
    and again .. wonderful job on this one!

    It does look good!
    I would have to argue with your comment about wishing you had it to drive, though. My Dad had a '65 Galaxie 500 when I was 19 and was Turquoise also.I didn't have a car of my own but after taking it once I never drove it again! It was the most sloppy thing on wheels.. down right scary. Even as a teenager without a car I refused to drive it! It almost rubbed the outside rockers on mild curves and wallowed down the road.
    This is the vehicle that turned me away from American cars to this day, although I know they have improved greatly since this low period.
