That paintwork is superb, the 70's are back! That looks amazing, tell me do you still feel excited when you take all the masking tape off and look at it for the first time or does it ware off?

Some phenomenal work there. I've seen the Lincoln before but the others are new to me. One of the best things about lowriders is that you can really go to town with the paint and detailing. The stock Buick is a fairly bland looking vehicle (no offence meant) but you've turned it into a work of art there. :tup:

thats ace

so how long does it take to mask something like that up.
do you do reference points on the primer first
days and days and days mate. the roof took 6 days so far and aint finished yet! i paint the flake first, flat, reseal with clear, flat, mask up patterns, paint colours in then add clear, flat, clear, polish. i been on the car nearly everyday for about three week now so dont be fooled into thinking its like painting a car normally. its like doing it several times but thats what you have to do if you want paint not stickers. its all the trying a line down the car, not liking it, pulling it off and keep doing it until you get something you like. you dont plan it out really but let shapes jump out at ya while you play with tape.

I remember Mark from my time in Unity Lowriders back in the mid 90's. Top marks on the paintjob fella.
