Yeah, my webcam ain't worth a shit. I was trying to capture the paint job. Black base with a gold (came out brownish over black) pearl and metalflake color. In the sun, the metalflake disappears and the pearl pops, in the shade, it's the opposite. The body is pretty much done, cleared and foiled, except for the hood, I messed the paint up around the ornament so I redid it today.



Also, you can barely tell, but each letter on the rear quarter script (Bonneville) has been painted, i'm trying to perfect the method before I tell you about it.

Damn, I'm sorry, that flake is hard as hell to clean out, I ran thinner thru my airbrush for about 5 minutes straight and a couple still came flying out when I cleared.

More progress pics, finished chroming the undercarriage with Alclad, I also cleared a test body I done with gold flake.



Should be done soon!
