door panel trim

3 posts in this topic

Hey everyone. My brother smokes Bronson100's and I noticed for some reason the foil inside the cigarette pack is silver with a very small pressed in detail. I think with a little black wash it would be a good replica for the inside metal panel on some of the fifties mopars. Thay had some kind of weird black/silver finish that kind of moved with your angle of view. Haven't tried it yet but pretty sure it will work if you can make it stick to the plastic. Can't be too hard.

Good tip..

I use it under the hood as heat insulation.

Make templates with masking tape first and then transfer to the foil.

A lite coat of Goop glue and it's done.

Michael's and other similar Arts and Crafts stores sell something called "cake decorating foil" which looks exactly like that. It comes on a roll (like tin foil) and comes in gold and silver. I have a roll of the gold as I want to duplicate (and correct) the side trim of RC2's woefully inaccurate '58 Plymouth, as its side trim pattern was quite similar.

That is when I can get some of my other projects done! :P
