i picked this up off the clearence shelf for 7 bucks and thought i could do a kool quickie build since the 61 has got me all worked up (the paint mishap and foil is really coming out like shit)

here it is stock


took off the running boards and primed it and sprayed some silver flake


masked off some patterns and sprayed some yellow



its got some spots in the paint but im not done yet gonna do atleast one more color and spray some candy over it all :biggrin:

thinking about it the best advise i can give you is THINK BACKWARDS

i know it sounds silly but if you think of an oil painting of a person you wouldnt start with the eyes and face details

you always start with the background first and the rest comes in layers

background
outline of person
then details

:dunno: i dont know if this will help you or just make you think i am a crazy man but thats kinda how i think of it

well heres the part where i start blasting profanity and usally end up smashing shit :roflmao:

i taped some more off and sprayed a burnt orange color and the tape lines bled

plus it really doesnt flow right ( i shouldve just sprayd over the yellow and silver )

but i figured i would cover it with the candy (anodized) just to see what it would look like

im gonna end up stripping the truck with easy off but figured i would show my fk up anyway
