Thank you Mark! It took me 64 years to get one to turn out like this…most of my paint jobs end up in the Simple Green vat at least 2x.

Tom, were you using an airbrush? Were you using an acrylic or a solvent based paint?

I never was a drag racer & I'm too old to start now.  :laugh2: Some of my local friends built a scale 1/8 mi. dragstrip with a powered return lane.
