    Kevin,
    Kevin I didn't take it at disrespectful. The model that I posted the panel lines are not gone. If you could see it in person you could tell. What I do is before I primer is cut the panel lines a little bit deeper so the clear coat won't fill in.

    Cruz,
    I strictly use urethanes paints (DuPont) To me they are the better then anything else on the market.
    To answer some of your ?'s

    #2 Hardener does have a shelf life, I can't tell you how long because where you live your humidity is different then where I live. The only way to make it last longer is to buy a can of Bloxygen. After you open your paint, hardener, & clear coat spray a little then close it.

    #3 DuPont

    #4 I mix my paint different then the next person its just a preference, I spray my paint at 15-23 psi.

    #5 I use a paasche to an Iwata to sata airbrushes & a sata jet

    Mike,
    they make 2 kinds of gauges
    1. single- how much pressure is in the take
    2. dual- same as above, but with a regulator & gauge so you can reduce the pressure coming out. (I use this one)
    Go to your local gas/welding company should fill it less then $10.00
    You will also need a coupler on the gauges to hook-up your airbrush to it.

    If you need anything else just let me know.

    ZTony is right about putting white under red will make it pop. But if you
    put a yellow base first it will make the red stand out more then white will.
    Anytime I paint anything red I will use a yellow primer and not that buff color primer .

    Here is what I use


  9. J Smith added a post in a topic Eleanor tribute build   

    The name of the color is Pepper Gray. If you look on the Eleanor fourm DuPont is the best match for the color.
    Also the black stripes are not a plain black, it is a metallic black

    If you know how to use an airbrush I would use an
    automotive primer. I use all DuPont paints I have never had a problem
    with it.

    I agree 100% To me, I think it does better then a compressor does if you do find 1 make sure you take out the pick-up tube.

    As Geno said Auto Air or PPG?
    Auto Air I can't really help you out with. If you are wanting to know about DuPont Cromax I can
    help you out with that. I have been using it for the last 4 mths. You can ask here or pm me your ?'s
    I can help you out as much as I can.
