Beeaner, kinda a wide open question. If one could see your current scheme, one would have a better idea. Green and purple would look good, but if there are other colors to it, it might not. Post a pic of your current scheme and we can give a better idea.

PROMODVETTE-
HOK will ALWAYS flake with Lexan, even with Adhesion promoter. i usually use HOK for just show cars, and not race.

Try using some transparent blue streaks to start. Or, if you want to keep teh green theme, i would streak it with blue, then back it with a flo green. The Blues should come out to be a darker green color. Test it out fist before you go all out.

Hey charlie, I emailed you earlier today but I just thought of another question. Can you hook up an airbrush to a normal air compressor? Like a 10 gallon on wheels from sears/craftsman for example? I see the hose attachments you can buy for the brushes, but not sure how I would connect it up to a normal (non airbrush brand) air compressor.... thanks!!

Cap...all a compressor is is AIR..so yes, a normal compressor works. I would, however, recommend using a moisture trap. You can also purchase that at Sears.

Any compressor works fine. Harbor freight sells a pancake compressor for $60.
