Road trip! I'd most likely head south to California from here Bill.


Thanks Isaac. I think I'd have a lot more views and comments in this thread if I'd have gone with the "typical" Pro car paint scheme with all the shading and lettering.   :unknw:

I feel that the Concours and pro-style bodies are about the same on their level of coolness. Both have that neat style.

Love the Papaya orange, hard to beat. Its a perfect color match :heart:PS 19. Did you shoot lots of light coats to prevent curling issues ?

Love to hear your method. Would you use PS on older bodies or would you switch to TS Camel yellow?

That's beautiful Rick. I hadn't seen the end of this thread so just went through it... I wish you'd stop saying you have shaky paint brushes - your painting and detailing is excellent.
