if you want something simple, then just use a colour change laquer, you just spray on the laquer, then back in black and hey presto,

this was my first attempt with an airbrush, I just added a kind of smoking tyre effect, and yes i used all the laquer and forgot about the wing....

oops.

You can do that...but if you have no experience with airbrushing or spray painting...its better to start off with a one colored body. (or two if it's color change paint) You still can do two, three, or more colored bodies, but you'll need to prep slowly in order to avoid mistakes.

red with white viper stripes if you want to go that way. But i would say go for the Flip paint. They look so good when done properly. SpazStiz have a range of about 8 flip paints some with 3-4 colour range.

I know how I'd paint it if it were a chevy..........but since it's a dodge you might want to cut holes around the wheel wells and spray them with a rust colour paint; you also might want to do the same on the tailgate.
