Great work! The patina, especially on the door and bed side, looks real.

Against the right background, that would look absolutely real.

I primed it with red primer then painted it with rustolem labor blue from Wal-mart.I then wet sanded it with 800 grit til it showed the red primer. I had some issues come up on sanding it started showing the plastic so I took a brush and dabbed it from spraying red primer on a paper plate.I also used the weathering kit from Hobby Lobby called Sophisticated finishes.
