This is a little project I decided to do so my nephew Jay could be inspired to keep plugging away on his first
old car project, named the shop in honour of his two boys Anthony and Austin...

Couple more this week, the dragonfly was a request from a friend who liked my stuff enough to ask for a simple yet elegant tattooed dragonfly, I hope it wasn't a dragonfly with tattoos she was hoping for?

And an ongoing panel that is a warmup for whatever is really going on . Multiple paint techniques,more to come.

Very nice Chris.

When I see that striping, I just can't get how you guys do it right the first time, every time.

Right out in left field here with this thing.. I was awaiting my family to partake in Mothers Day festivities and when they give me too
much time in the garage alone I get fidgety.. Took a sheet of black painted aluminum, attacked with the grinder and a flap wheel then shot a quick wash of candy and clear, I need to do another but this time I will take my time and possibly do a hot rod or something to that effect..

Two more from lately..

First one was requested by the staff where I work to add to a toolbox we bought our boss.
Candy coated over aluminum with Candy blue and clear.

Staffsign.jpg

And a really cool Forties Pepsi sign that I'd typcially suggest not to paint on but the lettering was completely faded off, could not be read at all.

Repainted and distressed to match.

That's real nice work Chris. I gotta remember you when I'm ready for paint. I'd like to do a faded/flat/distressed type of paint job with bright /crisp pinstriping on my roadster.

Chris,,
on the picture of a green hood in the pic's thread at ELTA the hood was laid out with white lines.
Is that a white pencil or soapstone or ??.
Can you stripe right over it?
Thanks
TMJ

TMJ, I'm not sure which picture you're speaking of but I will say it would be a Stabilo Aquarellable water soluble pencil that will not effect the paint adhesion etc.. and wipes
off with a good old dose of spit! The grease pencils will not let paint adhere and often not dry , soapstone would leave a nasty carved mark on any surface that you tried to
draw on for reference... Staedtler also makes a pencil called Omni-Chrom (same thing, water soluble) just harder than heck to find in most cases..
