Finished body shop

Recommended Posts

Is anything ever really finished though. Learned a lot during this build got ideas from others and tips for the next one. But for now this will work. My dad had a body shop here locally so I put one of the stickers up in memory of him and he built models.  Added some messing paint on the bench screwdriver in wall to show his anger at times haha it was a fun build. For the nova wagon under tarp waiting its turn. Don’t like how the “guide coat” turn out think can do better next time.

I like this and as you pointed out, it may not really be finished. You always think about adding more. Enjoyed your thought process with little things like the screwdriver in the wall.

Thanks that came from his real emotion and anger at working on cars haha.

Its just the kleenex trick and elmers glue trick I might have progress pics I can post let me check

This looks great, and the dead leaves were a nice touch.  I'll be trying this myself soon on my current build.

Did you paint the tarp blue after the Kleenex was dried to it's final shape or while it was still damp?
