hello everyone.. (even the haters)
so i just read a great tread about krylon rattle can touch ups, there was a great deal of info and i can't wait for my next project..
AS LONG AS SOMEONE FIGURES OUT A MATCH FOR DOVE BLUE...

i have been doing them for years, not to fake anyone out or anything like that but with the cost of nice paint jobs these days and the way most people think bad things happen under nice paint jobs and sometimes that old beater is not worth the price of a nice paint job, i really don't care that much as to how the old VW look but if i'm building from a rusty old shell there is no sense putting NOS parts or weather stripping over rusty body parts.. so i rattle can them.. here are a few of my projects...
this also stops people from complaining about my beat up old cars in front of my house..

i know everyone will ask.. i only use rustolem american accents with the satin finish. they cover twice as well as the leading brand.. i bug or bus takes about takes about 10 cans for a really nice covering..

Wow, some really good results there, I am impressed. Some a little too flat but still amazing jorb.

i haven't done black since the 70's as it's too rat rodish and there are so many other cool color out there
