hello ya'll here is my version of rusting plastic. i started with amt's 55 chevy cameo this will be curbside so i notched the body for stance.

and the rest will be body work and a little interior work.post-7950-0-40014800-1355713706_thumb.jppost-7950-0-37072800-1355713730_thumb.jp

after cleaning up the body a bit lay down your primerpost-7950-0-29398900-1355713805_thumb.jppost-7950-0-28140600-1355713833_thumb.jp

let primer dry then lightly sand spots you want rusty and brush on rust enamel pretty liberally.post-7950-0-82163900-1355713965_thumb.jppost-7950-0-44873800-1355713998_thumb.jp

let dry then run under the faucet the wetter the better. sprinkle salt everywhere you want. the water allows the chipping effect where primer shows along with rust.post-7950-0-66996500-1355714188_thumb.jp

spray your main color while still wetpost-7950-0-27862900-1355714280_thumb.jp

let dry fully then run under hot water brushing salt and loose paint off. post-7950-0-89366500-1355714365_thumb.jppost-7950-0-82740700-1355714397_thumb.jp
