Hey Hi,

Can you please share some of your work... I really wanna have a look.

When using black to paint fine shadow lines, what is everyone using? Paint, psi, thinning, etc? I am using Createx paints.

Is it absolutely necessary to paint all the dark colors 1st? how do you get around doing some of the lighter colors 1st?

I normally paint all my pinstripes first, then work from darkest to lightest. If I have to paint a lighter color before a darker color, I just back the lighter color with two coats of silver and that should block the next color from showing.

Would you need to have a separate work area for paint and wrenching, or can the same space be used without issues from the shock and diff oils?

If I'm right this is where to ask questions...
Would window tint work (mirrored) as a permanent window mask for painting a body?
Id leave it on as I want the windows mirrored....
