1970 Mustang Boss 429
Posted by Samiches on Saturday, July 29, 2017 4:16 PM

I started this a year ago and didn't touch it again for almost 10 months.  A busy work schedule will do that!  My phone blew out the color quite a bit when I took photos outdoors, so I included a couple that show a more accurate color.

 

Thanks for looking! Beer

Nice looking Mustang. What did you use for the wood grain inserts and the steering wheel?

The wood grain is hand painted.

I need to mess around with my phone's camera a bit more to get better outdoor photos, but I appreciate the comments.

Beautiful what paint did you use ? That metalic gray is unusual.

Thanks for the comment.  I used rust-oleum's universal advanced formula metallic paint & primer in one, dark steel.  Its the paint with the pistol-like trigger built into the cap.  I had to be careful because the spray coverage is kind of thick.  The color is more like a gun metal than anything.

I quite like your wood grain technique for the interior bits. Very effective.
