    58 Corvette, masking for paint
    As you can see, I messed up when paining the coves. I thought they were complete until I installed them & saw that I now have to finish the white on the fender. This will entail taping & masking and I am wondering, what is the favourite material used to mask the car while painting.

    Wicked airbrush paints
    I have a nice Wicked Red airbrush paint I would like to put on a '58 vette I am building. 
    Question is, does this paint need to be thinned before use, and if so, with what. Wicked says to use Wicked thinner, but I am no where near anybody that sells it.
     
    Thanks

    1978 Z/28
    I bought the twin to this car new in 1978, and am looking for a model of it to build. It is a 1978 Z/28, no T-Roof.
    The 1977 and earlier, and 1979 up, are both different cars from the 1978, it had many body features unique to that year.
    If anyone knows where I could trade for one or buy one, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Would love to have a kit of this, any idea where to find one. I had a 1:1 of this, bought new in 1978, chocolate brown, and would like to do a model of it.

    Painting small parts, brush or spray?
    Questions:
    1) Do most paint small parts on the tree, then assemble, or assemble & then paint.
    2) Do most spray paint  motors and parts, as well as interiors and seats, or do you use brushes.
    Looking at some finished jobs on here (WOW), wondering how the painting gets done so well.
    Thanks

    I have a couple of nail brush colors I've been waiting to try. One is a deep red & the other a bright yellow. Either will have a tan leather interior.

    Purple Power
    I have a 56 ford pick up soaking in the pond due to silver paint puddling along the bottom of the truck.
    Question: After taking the model out of the Purple Power, do you strain it to remove the old paint, or leave it in the container, as is, for the next time?

    Home made distributors
    I see a lot of home made distributors on the cars here. They look like they are made from Aluminum tubing. If so, I am wondering on the diameters of the 2 sizes of tubing used, and if not, what material is being used.
    Thanks for the info!

    The 'Cuda has silver fine tip marker for the door handles, hood pins, etc. on the car, and the blue Dodge (Color Me Gone) is a weekend warrior drag car, didn't figure it would have chrome trim anyway.

    True, I have a package of Bare Metal, problem it is 10 years old and I don't think it would work. May have to invest in some new stuff.
    Also, these 64 year old sausage fingers don't work the best anymore.

    These are the only 2 complete builds of 2016. The Jeep is an older SnapTite model. Hopefully 2017 is more productive.
