    Ok so I had a minute to think about what I wanted to do with my 5.0, and I came across the idea of a helicopter designed theme. So with that being said, here's the start of the project. [​IMG][​IMG]really bad rust damage on this car. [​IMG]

    The paint going on this car is actual paint used on UH-60 Sikorsky Blackhawks. Got the hook up for a gallon from a surplus store for $30, better than rattle cans. But I'll keep this thread updated for this project.

    How exactly do you plan to apply this gallon of paint? Spraying it? What's the story with the hood? You removed the antenna to get to all of the rust around it I hope? Sorry for 20 questions. Just curious.

    The paint is sprayable. So using my hvlp gun and using reducer to get the right consistency. Then the rust is simple, use a wire cup brush, then use rust mort which stops the rusting process.
