I made the body from glued up 3/4 inch thick MDF. I used up some automotive primer I had left over from another project to seal the MDF. The orange paint is Behr house paint applied with an airbrush. The top coat is Rust-Oleum Triple Thick Glaze. The glaze is so glossy that you can get a finish that looks like it was dipped in glass.

The axle hubs and the exhaust pipes are brush painted with flat black acrylic craft paint with a top coat of clear shellac.

The wheels are brush finished with amber shellac. I mount them on a drill and apply shellac to the spinning wheel until it stops soaking up the shellac.

I found the Rust-Oleum Triple Thick glaze to be difficult to apply, To get the best gloss finish I had to spray it pretty wet, This makes it prone to runs,

I also had problems with the over spray swirling around and sticking to the other side making the surface rough, I found that the slightest bit of breeze would cause this, I obtained the best results when it was dead calm, I would not recommend spraying this finish indoors unless you have a very good spray booth.
