But you've completely destroyed its value as a collectible! Just kidding! It looks great. Having restored a few to "not pretty but fully functional" condition, l have a good idea how much work you put into it. That is some major rust removal. Did you replate the cap iron or just clean and polish it? Either way, nice job. Now go make some shavings!
You're doing nice work, Thomas. One thing: the spark plugs on a hemi are down inside the valve covers. In Andy's photo, you can see that there is just a rubber boot and the wire going into the valve cover.
Thanks guys. I do have a set of pastels, as well as regular blackboard chalk. I can play around with that, especially since I can wash it off if/when I need to. If I get a look I want, how do I make it permanent? Mike and Mike suggested a semi-gloss clear. Any suggestions about a good one to use? I do have an airbrush if that helps.
Thanks Miles and Mike. I think I would like to stay away from Dullcote if possible. I want the car to look faded, but not "flat" overall. Is there some other sealer for the powders that might work? How about Future? Or how about a very thin white/gray wash?
