This is my Mark Martin Viagra car. Basically box stock except for added hood pins. Also, all the silver, blue and white stripes/graphics are painted on. Only the number and sponsor decals were used.

All paint??!
Outstanding effort Eric. I checked out your Photo Album and like your work, especially the Ferrari 288 GTO. I'm trying to combine that Ferrari and a Corvair. Yes, you read this correctly. A Corvair!

MY GOD MATT,
Why would you want to ruin a Corvair?

Thanks guys...........
Eric

As for the sequence, Paul, here goes....
1. Painted the entire car white
2. Taped off what I wanted to stay white
3. Painted everything else silver
4. taped off what I wanted to stay silver (remember the white is aready taped)
5. sprayed in the light blue
6. Ran a strip of tape around where I wanted to stay light blue (again, remember the white and silver is already taped off)
7. Painted in the dark blue
8. Removed all tape and touched up any edges that needed it
9. cleared the entire kit.
10. The clear messed up the silver so I taped up all the blues and white and repainted the sliver with no clear this time.

My wife didn't want to be around me during the week that I painted this car, due to my frustration Big Smile. She recommends that, for those of you that are married or have a significant other, that you warn them ahead of time so they know to stay away from you....... Evil

Wow! I understand the frustration with four colors. I wig out at two colors!

One more question. Did the blue go well over the silver? I would have been hinky about spraying a color over silver and saved that for last. I'll have to remember that.

Clear over silver doesn't work for me but a darker color over silver seems to work fine.

Nice job Eric!!! Show us more please!!!

If you want silver you can clear over with NO problems, and also get different shades of silver, try Dupli-color automotive touch-up sprays.

Just be sure to use Dupli-color primer/sealer to protect the plastic from the "hot" solvent in the laquer color coat.

When it cures about 24 hours, you can wet sand with 2000 grit, and your clear will go on and look like a sheet of glass!!

Oh, like the decals in Nascar kits, after sanding, apply at least one coat of clear to give the decals somthing to bite on. Decals don't set well on snaded surfaces or flat paint, and depending on the color underneath, it'll look blotchy, with "silvered" edges.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the compliments everyone.....

Darrin, you're right about the clear over the duplicolor silver, I've used it on a few occasions, it does work great. I should have been more clear (pardon the pun) and said clear didn't work over this silver.... LOL.
The end result was okay though.
