    Thanks everyone. Ok, you want to know how I get my paint to dry so fast. 1st, I only use Tamiya, Testors Lacquers or Dupli-color rattle cans. 2nd, I use a floor heater right after I finish the primer coat, then color coat and then the Wet Look Clear. After the final 30 seconds for the clear I take it over to my floor fan for a minute. Wait a 15 minutes and polish it out with Novis #2. The total paint and polish, takes about 30 minutes. I've been doing this procedure for 10 years with excellent results. Hope this helps. Al Heater Hosted on Fotki Fan Hosted on Fotki

    Rick, I didn't know that either. This was an open kit I bought off eBay and there was parts and instructions missing.

    68 GTO in Bahama Blue
    I started this one at 8 am this morning. I painted it Dupli-color Bahama Blue Met. with Testors Wet Look Clear top coat. The interior was painted Tamiya Primer White with black carpeting. RWL tire's are from an AMT Parts Pak. This based on Monogram's 1/24 kit.
    Thanks for looking.

    Facebook 24 Hour build off Camaro
    I joined a 24 hour build off on Facebook Saturday at noon and in my classic style, I finish mine in 5 1/2 hours. I know there are a few things that have to be fixed,the grill and the side view mirror. But all and all I'm  pretty please with the end results. Painted Tamiya Bright Red with Semi Gloss Black interior. The strips are from Firebird Designs and the tires are AMT redlines from their parts pak..
    Thanks for looking,

    66 T Bird Coupe Restoration Done in less than 24 Hrs.
    I started on this one this afternoon. I primed, painted in Dupli-color Bright Aqua Mist, Wet Look Cleared, BMF, tinted the glass and refinished the interior, all since 3:00 this afternoon. How does it look so far.
    Thanks

    Bob, make sure you spray very light coats. I use a piece of white paper to judge the tint between coats. I found 4 or 5 coats are perfect.

    Bob, yes. I tinted them with 4 very light coats of Tamiya clear blue.

    I did have any trouble with the wheels, but the window are another story. There isn't any sure fit on the glass and ended up screwing the outer edges with glue. There is also no holes for the muffler, so mounted the exhaust is a real pain.
