  1. Probably would, but I'm not sure if that silver sharpie would come off. I looked at some photos of some other builds of this car and some had the trim painted full out around the windows. I just did that. It's not true to 1;1, but looks ok. Just a shelf sitter anyway. Lesson learned, I need to find a better way to paint the trim. I will give the foil another try later on a different build.
  2. Yea, that's what I use. Love the primers. But I've been having problems with all their blacks, the gloss, semi-gloss and flat. Seems to not spray smooth, leaving a rough looking finish.
  3. Nice. Which black paint are you using on the frame?
  4. Looks great. I finally got my windshield frame from Revell a couple days ago. Now I need another 29 Roadster kit.
  5. Thanks for the comments guys. But now I have ruined it. There is a lot of trim on this car. I could not decide what I wanted to do with it. I have some foil, but have never tried using it. Decided to try it, it would not stick, so gave up. Have a metallic silver paint pen, started with it and it worked good for the large area on the back panel, but tip too big for the smaller trim. Got the old standby silver sharpie out., even though it does not look like chrome at all. Finished up the side trim with it, then started on the windows, lots of trim here and hard to tell what to hit with the sharpie, checked the box and thought I had it right, but I was hitting the wrong area. By this time I'm frustrated and should have stopped, but I kept going and messed up my line making a big mess. Oh well, it is what it is. Taking a break for a couple days, got some Doctor appointments next week, still trying to get a problem with my potassium level figured out. Here's my mess...........
  6. Got the rest of the body painted and the engine done.
  7. Cut some more off the bumper/grille. I think I will go with this.
  8. Thanks Bob. I like my Paasche H also, simple and efficient.
  9. Looks great Bob. Nice work on the foil. I got some the other day, never used it before, but plan on trying it on the Impala when I start building it.
  10. Thanks. This is my first time using it. I have the green and a bottle of the blue pearl. I like it so far, sprays good, needs just a little thinning for my Paasche H.
  11. Looks good to me. I haven't got that far on mine yet, but I will be watching out for that sagging axle.
  12. Yea, I've looked at photos and saw them like that. I think I will probably go with the grill only.
  13. Thanks. The color is CreateFX Pearl Green. I didn't have time or energy to get it all painted. Having some health problems this week.
  14. I think I will cut more of the bumper off but leave the grille and center piece with the chevy emblem. I was able to shoot some paint on the flip front today.
  15. Thanks, I see what you are talking about. I think I'll try trimming it more. I have seem them cut different ways, some even had the grill removed and left only the top chrome piece. I kinda like that look, may even try it. I also may try to find a moon tank and mount it on the front.
  16. That's a great looking little hot rod. Nice job.
  17. Thanks Bob. Thank you. Looking forward to seeing your WIP. Thank you. All is good. It's an on going health issue I've had for years, had a lot of appointments this week.
  18. Was at my local Michaels yesterday just looking around and saw they had a few kits. I had thought they stopped carrying them. There wasn't many, so may be some leftovers. Picked up this one.
  19. Things are going slow, I was hoping to get the body painted today, but I'm working through some health problems this week and was unable to. I did get some of the engine done.
  20. Thanks Bob. Thanks. Thank you. Thanks. Thank you.
