Been a week since I last posted – here’s our progress.

Primered & Paint

I’m using Rustoleum Pro series of enamel paints for the colors. Hunter Green on top, Royal Blue below the masked line, and the line itself will be yellow. I love the primer color – rusted metal. Almost just kept the car primed like that.

If you are interested here's the technique.

Next week, I expect the students will complete the painting and move onto adding the body mods (notice the grill…new stuff coming soon!)

Leave a comment for the kids – I’ll read the encouragement out to them in next weeks class.

-- make it safe & keep the rubber side down.
