Well, Mike, it looks like your're having fun already with this one! Testor's does make a Burnt Iron in Metalizer and with an airbrush it looks just like burnt iron! But I use it as my semi-flat black for Chevy and Ford inner fenders and other uses. I apply with a brush without shaking the bottle too much once the iron flakes settle to the bottom. Takes a few uses for the iron to settle in the bottom so the first few applications have a little iron in them. But with an airbrush it looks like a redish gray.
I know you had mentioned that you didn't know what color of red to use but for me I normally would use a bright red like Testors Italian Red lacquer on a race car. I think there's a racing red too. If you want a darker color I would use the Testors, I think its called Blaze Red or Fire Red lacquer. I tried to find a photo of the real car but couldn't find one so its hard to determine.
If you cannot have a good time, what kinda time can you have? JR
Next on the bench: Another 1970 Hemi 'Cuda, 1958 Chevy Impala, 1987 Buick GNX, 1950 Chevy Pick-up, Indy Reynard, 1965 Corvette, probably not in this order.
