Default Anyone like classic Chevys?

You might like this. 71 Proline C10 body, painted using a stock truck pic as a reference. I used Faskolor white/red and Spastix Chrome on the windshield/side windows and trim. Faskolor black/silver on my carbon fiber bed attempt (See: crap.) The chrome didn't lay down clean, it kind of had a marble effect. I guess that wasn't from doing a final cleaning after I pulled the masking away.

It didn't turn out show quality. My "carbon fiber" look bed turned out like crap. So, now I won't feel bad beating the tar out of it. You might ask why this nice clean body sits atop the dirty uncleaned RCX I bought. I always do my projects backwards!

Are you prepping the inside before you paint ?

At the very least you should wash the inside with dish soap and hot water , you can also scuff the inside(not the windows though) with a scotchbrite pad to give the paint something to adhere too .

Looks very real! I gave my dad the same body for Xmas and he wants to make it look original too. What do u think of using shiny heat tape for striping?
