factory over spray on a muscle car
Posted by modeller123 on Tuesday, November 28, 2017 8:52 AM

I want to build the revell 1968 charger 2in1 in its stock forum and that includes simulating the factory over spray on the chassis I know that I have to paint it a dark gray and then mist on some body colour on to the sides of it but what I dont know is should I use a single action air brush or a dual action air brush because I have looked at a bunch of pics and I thought that a dual action would work beter I have a single action and a dual action but the dual action has a bent needle and I could never make it work properly PS the hemi wont work with the stock

It doesn't matter if you use a single action or a double action airbrush.  I use mostly rattle cans for my over spray.  The Hemi won't work with the stock what?  I have built several '68 and '69 Chargers with the Hemi, so what will the Hemi not work with that is stock?

That's interesting!  All my Hemis fit under the stock hood.  Check your motor mounts, make sure the engine sit seated all the down onto the mounts.  You might have to modify the mounts to lower the engine.  Also, shave a little material off the bottom of the carbs and the air cleaner.
