Awesome set of wheels rv1963. Fantastic customwork.
I have no doubt you're a master with the airbrush. How about a quick sbs on how you paint and polish a car. please.

Tanks for the compliment Jesper but this car was painted with an old Testers gloss black spray can no AB this car was not polished just a little wax. A few tips when you have your car primed wipe it down with a tack cloth to remove all dust and dirt, second run some hot water in your sink not boiling just hot and put the can in for a few minutes, it helps the paint flow better, try to find a dust free area to paint in and the rest is just practice. When i do polish my cars i use the Novus polishing system and Micro-Mesh Abrasive cloths i really like both you can get them from www.micromark.com. I will be posting a pick of my in progress 1968 Pontiac Firebird soon (Yes in Black) the paint on this car is much better and i used both items above to polish it if you whish remind me then and i will explain better how i did it. Thanks again.
