Body damage how to?


Recommended Posts

You have a cool idea. A brush with a Dremel sanding drum could give you the scrape effect and spot heat the area with a BIC lighter enough to push the area in for the dent may work. After painting, fill the scrapes with panel line paint. I have never tried this myself, so using a guinea pig body for experimenting would be in order. Show us how you make out. I’m sure it would be useful to others.

The crash damage is replicated using thick foil pressed onto the good panel, before bending it up and setting it by back-filling the panel with body filler (to hold its shape). The foil crinkles a lot more realistically than the heat-and-bend technique

Oven liners and turkey roasting pans are a good source of heavy foil. Cheap at the grocery store. 

Well....I do have a turkey roasting pan in the fridge.......I wonder why? 🙂
