While I'm here, I also wanted to mention the East Coast Trans Am Shootout at Mimi's on Saturday October 11th....

East Coast Trans Am Shootout

This is a first class indoor facility and a lot of our guys are going to this event.

It would be cool to meet a lot of you guys there....

If anyone is thinking of going, let us know....

Just having some fun with it.

love the pic im trying to get some Bolink bodies to paint up like the old birds
I figured you had something like that in mind!

We're a bit loose with the allowed bodies out here and one of the guys has a Superbird in the works right now. I can't wait to see it!

...I use to do the window tint w/ the airbrush and diluted black.

I forget how diluted it was but it seems to me I used about twice the normal thinner and sprayed very light coats until I got the desired effect.

I mix the whole bottle into a 2 oz jar and then fill the original bottle about 1/2 full of thinner and then mix them together in the 2 oz jar

If you can find it, House of Kolor (Valspar) made RC paint for a short time (just discontinued it ) Their flat black is MONEY! Best looking flat black I seen. If you can find some of that, you'll be set.

Of course, like others mentioned, it's gotta be on the outside...
