    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. If it doesn't, I'll push the maintenance back to Saturday, 2 December.

Agree with what everyone says about your changes - nicely planned and executed! The color is spot-on perfect. What paint/color did you use?

Thanks Rusty. It's Duplicolor grey primer covered with Pearl-Ex antique silver mixed with HOK SG100 intercoat clear and then a couple coats of Nason 2 part urethane clear.

You need an airbrush and there's all kinds of combination you can make.  One Pearl-Ex powder looks completely different over different primers and colors.

I agree with all of the above!  I especially like the rear end treatment.  Another winner from your bench.
