Thanks for all the kind comments guys.  Here is a picture of the resin I use.  I got this at Sally's Beauty Supply.  I hope this helps someone cause it works great in making parts from a mold.  Dan

I was gettin ready to spray the Plum Crazy on when I found these sink marks on the trunk. Bummer big time. So, I had to go and try and fix them. I think I got them fixed and then I just got done paintin the Plum Crazy a few minutes ago. There is a little dust speckles on the roof but, I think I can just rub them out when this is dry. Now, what I need to know is what color undercoat did they use for the chassis. Was it Red Oxide or a gray primer. If ya know, please let me know. Thanks.

As a long time MoPar owner I can tell you the primer is gray but most of the underside is body colored over spray. (My T&C minivan doesn't have much over spray beyond the rocker panels, but thats's a much newer and different vehicle).Also most have been undercoated black.

Cars of your model's era use a low gloss black for the frame rails, suspension, steering, rear axle & drive shaft.

Even though these components all use this same approximate color, you may want to use different blacks on the various components to add a little detail interest. The black on 1:1 cars isn't a perfect match from part to part since they are made of different materials and painted at different times at different locations with different paint lots, and possibly different paint formulas/suppliers/manufacturers, (but you probably already know that :) )

Got some progress done.  Here are some pics of the look that I'm going for.  I have to paint the interior and do the chrome trim and last but not least, the engine.  More to come.  Dan

Thanks Ted.  One thing is, I'm not looking forward to the chrome on this car cause, there is a lot of it.  This will have to set for a few days so the paint will cure.  It is still a little tacky today.  When it's ready, I'll put on the chrome with BMF and maybe some with the chrome pen from molotow.  Dan
