It's coming along very nicely!

Thanks Mike, but I already tried,
It just says... Currently only available in flash.
I love watching you paint, i'v never seen another airbrush artist work before, just in mags, ( well in our shop they paint the props, but there not experienced painters, good artists, but not experienced with an airbrush) I had to learn the hard way, and I'm still learning.
Your actualy on my list of people to meet.
I met Dennis Mathewson last year in his shop in ,honalulu,
I met Vandeamon a couple years ago,
I talked to Craig Frasier, but havn't met him yet in person,
And Ron Gibb called me one time and we talked for a few hours, but I haunt gotten to his neck of the woods yet.
Well anyway, if I'm in your area, I hope to be able to drop by.
Cheers

I am still sanding, but getting damn close. Now I am trying to figure out timing for hogging the spray room for 3 days and get this done. At least the main body, will do doors and stuff in the mix of work. I just have a few spots to touch and it is ready to spray this week.

I will be mixing colors in the next couple of days.

Weeeee. Maybe next time with pics.

You got that right 70. The cello is much more easy on the ears than the violin. I have one of those too. :)

I am mixing color today and blowing out the car. Paint may start this evening while we are having a heat wave. I got all the rocker texture paint sprayed where I wanted it. I am all done sanding the body , hood and decklid. I will get the doors later in the week.

Next up...Pictures of car in basecoat. Weeeee

Thanks Whoza. It seemed like I was sanding for months. Which I was.. HEHEHEHEH. But it was good exercise. One thing I do have, is patience. Staying motivated when you really do not feel like it is the challenge.

So today, I shot the black base coat, let it dry then masked for the initial graphics. Then went and bagged the black and then sprayed the drab green. Tomorrow I will start the airbrushing and the pinstripe work on the main colors.

Having fun now.

Carlene, I can not get the webcam operational in my booth. But I will be doing some nose art on the decklid sometime this week possibly.

Here is some stuff from this morn. More to come as I get further along with it.
