    My Classic Car followed by Jay Leno's Garage. Mecum has the best auctions. Barrett Jackson is not as good as it used to be. Too many side features and not enough cars.

    I like it, but then I always like unique, creative ideas like this.

    Thanks for the quick response. I like it simple too. I'll be buying some of this to try.

    Harry, you may have answered this before but do you spray the Spaz Stix out of the can or decant and A/B? What primer  and gloss black brands do you use? Do you shoot the primer and gloss black out of the can or decant and A/B? TIA!

    Great job! I love WRC. I wish they would show more of it on TV here in the states.

    Can someone tell me the difference between semi-gloss and satin finishes and the difference between flat and matt finishes.

    I've always liked the Torquethrust (sp?) but they seem to work (for me) on cars that are more traditional. Your Vette is not traditional. It's a custom and I'd go with the top ones in the 3 pic post. Those in the one pic post look like they're off my wife's CRV.

    Ray, are you airbrushing it or spraying it right out of the can? I bought a big can of it at Walmart today for $3.97.
