I hadn't planned on selling any of them. I still have a hard time deciding which one I like better!

I don't really want to sell any of them, but you can have the dodge charger for free, lol.

Thanks for the nice words CATTECH!

I should emphasize you need Light and Even coats. If you don't saturate the paint, you should be fine.

The candy blue was my 2nd paint job attempt. Close-up, it's a bit saturated in some spots, but it still turned out alright.

I have only a Hemicuda body left to paint, and I was thinking of using another candy scheme, or window tint black (though I had reallyyy bad luck with the window tint on two of my paint jobs that I ended up having to spray the windows with solid black, which in turn ruined my paint job, which made me re-paint on the outside (the red chevy, and the black chevy)). I might do something like the red chevy, with the black hood, roof and trunk, but the red sections would be a transparent candy color, but who knows, CAMO? lol jk.

Hey Kal, I do like the charger but the paintjob is horrible. I wanted to do something along those lines, but after I painted all the windows without thinking it was game over for the charger :lol:
