Thanks everyone. This scallop job was a vision of Jim Hill at Pop's Garage. He gave me the idea, and helped me lay out a couple of the lines. I am hoping that he will let me do the paint work on some of his creations. As for the brand of tape, I just use 3M 2 inch masking tape, and take 2 really sharp hobby blades and tape them together with the tips really close for a finer line. I take a piece of the 2 inch tape about 1 foot long and stick it down to my cutting mat, and cut a bunch of strips. Keep at it, you will get the hang of it.

Well Gents, here it is all buttoned up. Might end up swapping the wheels out later, but they are staying on there for now. 95% out of box, besides a scratch built super tall floor shifter, plug wires and a photoetch banjo steering wheel.

Your work is absolutely beautiful, Chris, and the masking is nothing short of amazing.

Which paints do you use?

CHRIS!!! I need to pick your brain!! I can't find the How To on layitlow.com. I'm looking for tips and the process of how to paint like this. I mean these cars are BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

Do you paint the designs on first then just mask over them and paint the car the full main color?
