long time, lotta work.

i recently painted my '66 ambassador... sheesh .

it turned out alright for our (me and my pops) first job.but im still a little dissapointed. i did it in flat grey, black scallops. the scallops looked even while they were just tape, but as you can see, paint made it a different story. tell me what you think...

as an "artist" you will be WAY more aware of flaws thena the viewer. if you hadnt of said anything, I wouldnt have noticed. cant tell if the scales on the car are a camera flaw? or paint? maybe paint over rust? anyways not bad for a first, and way more than I have ever done!! nobody'll see it at 60mph!!

Yes you were very offensive when you left jk
Looks great dude! Next time you really might wanna dry it off before you take the picture. At first glance it looks like something is wrong with the paint, until you look closer then realize that its watter. But it still looks awesome!

I thought "whoa, major orange peel and fish eyes everywhere" but realized it was the water, lol. Where the heck you been man? Its looks awesome, sweet ride for a teenager. Did you shave your tires, paint them or actually went out and bought whitewall$? Now you also owe us pics of your fotey.

I see the water droplets but I also see something that looks like some minor body damage that you painted over. I could be mistaken because pics sometimes do weird things to the optic nerve, causing persons to see things that are not as they appear. Good job though. Keep on fixing and painting, before long you can be right up there with the best of them.

Al

What happened to the rule: i before e except after c, as in weird instead of wierd. Just wondering.

Not trying to pick out the flaws, but....if you would've spent just a little more time on the bodywork before getting anxious to paint it, it would look soooo much better. To me, it looks like you got a little carried away with the welder and warped the door skin where you shaved the mirror and handles. Are you planning on shaving the locks also, or are the lock linkage going to be hooked to the door handle linkage to open the doors?
The scallops doesn't look to bad, they are a little off of each other, but once again, that is due to being impatient.
Don't let me discourage you by any means. You have a good start. You just need a little practice to get it right.
I think that it is a very cool car. If it was mine, I would probably finish the bodywork on the handles, slam it down, keep the steelies and maybe throw on some spider caps, with the wide whites. I also have to admit that the whitewalls look pretty good for painting them on. Sure beats the price that I plan on paying for whites for the S10($185/each)

yeah weimer, the panels did warp. i didn't let i cool down enough, and there wasn't a mirror on the passenger side, thats from the door opening to far and nailing teh fender. i hammered my guts out, and thats the best i can get it. most of that comes from lack of expierience (spelling?).

i was in a hurry to paint it, but only because utahs biggest carshow was coming up. i ended up unmasking the scallops and reassembling the car the day before the show.

your right weimer, if i would of calmed down it would of look alot better. hindsight is 20/20...

hey crazy gut gut, the rest of my tires are treadmasters, with big letters on the side. personaly i think they look better the the one in the pic.

night, my fortey is still the same. i havent realy touched it. its sad, but after hacking out the floor of the cab im sca.....nervous.... to touch it.

thanks for the comments guys, heres a pic of a treadmaster...
