  1. I was just told that Grex updated the seal. What size needle do you use for car bodies?
  2. I was about to place an order for a Grex Tritium.TG but now reading this I think I'll pass. Are the Grex airbrushes still being made with the rubber o-rings or have they switched to teflon seals?
  3. I was going to get the TG5 with the .5mm needle. Would that be overkill for spraying clear lacquer? I currently have a Iwata Eclipse and use a .5mm needle when spraying clear lacquer.
  4. I'm looking at these 2 airbrushes: Grex Tritium.TG or GSI Creos Mr. Airbrush Procon Boy PS-290 . They both seem similar and both have a fan spray cap option. I'm thinking one or both of these would be good for spraying bodies with clear. http://www.grexusa.com/grexairbrush/products.php5?id=Tritium.TG https://www.mr-hobby.com/en/product3/category_2/19.html I'd appreciate any thoughts or opinions on these.
  5. I sent him a few PM's and he never answered. He was making me up a few decals sheets and then stopped replying a while ago.
  6. Is there a red oxide primer that's more red looking than Duplicolor?
  7. Thanks for the information and thanks for the compliment on the cats.
  8. Are you sure you aren't referring to the Duplicolor filler primer? I use Duplicolor Sandable Gray Hot Rod and White primer and it goes on thin. I need Red Oxide for a project and needed to know if it's more red or more brown.
  9. Is Dupli-Color Sandable Red Oxide Primer more towards red or brown? I've seen red oxide primers that look very brown and some very red.
  10. I did test some Alclad Aqua Gloss over the Alclad Chrome and it's durable. I tested it on spoons. Both spoons have the Alclad Chrome. I sprayed Aqua Gloss over the chrome on one spoon and it's only very slightly duller. It's worth the slight difference in appearance considering how durable the clear is.
  11. Do you use Duplicolor Sandable Red Oxide Primer? If so does it have a brown tint or is it more red?
  12. Has anyone used the AK Xtreme Metal Chrome or Aluminum colors?
  13. There are a few chrome paints such as Alclad, Spaz Stix and Molotow and a few clear coats for going over chrome paint. I need to paint an exhaust system that will go through tubes in a frame so I need the chrome paint to be somewhat durable. I'd like the exhaust system to look like stainless steel. I've used Molotow but it's soft. I used Spaz Stix Ultimate Clear Coat over the Molotow but it dulls it a bit which is OK. I'm concerned Molotow might fade over time since it's an ink and not paint. Any ideas?
