The Blue is Candy Cobalt Blue. Going to lay down a Silver base coat, then the blue on top of it, with ghost flames and ghosted images through out.

Nice work, Steve-O!!
Keep us posted with progress pics. Wish I had the time an equipment to lift my motor out when I did my bay. Would've been able to do a better job with less swear words. LOL.

Little bit of fun with the wet sanding and polishing to see what kind of a shine we "could" get out of the old paint.

I agree I can not paint. That is why I let heath do it. For anyone that has never tried air brushing, wow, it is nothing like drawing. Unreal how the artists do what they do.

More pics to come soon. Doubt I will get out this weekend to work on her, since I am supposed to be working all weekend. devil_angry.gif

Bare with me and if you have dial up I suggest you go cook a 12 course meal while waiting for these to load. A lot of pics here.

There that does it for now. Still needs to be wet sanded and buffed/color sanded. In the process of droping the new engine I built into it this week. Then I can get the hood on, take it back out to be finished 100%. Been a long project but it is getting close to being done for this year. Dart 4 Bolt block and my 2 turbos go on next year. (should make for a fun winter project)
