Awesome paintjob!! Did you paint that by hand, or use some kind of lace to spray through. In any case it must have been a VERY time consuming job...Bow

Ok Steve, you simply have to share how you did that. Man, that lace paint brings me back to when that was so popular on 1:1 cars. Great job, that's a winner for sure.

Great job Steve...Is that a resin kit or plastic? Did you cut the roof off?

Thanks,everyone. To do the lace panels.I masked off the shapes,sprayed thelace color[black] then taped a peice of lace over it and sprayed the background color through the lace. After it was dry, i masked it off and sprayed the rest of the car. I know it would have been simpler to simply spray the body the blue first but doing it this way keeps the paint from getting to thick where the lace is. It is the kit body with the roof cut off.The boot is from a Johan '64 Caddy.
