Just had a question to all you painters out there.. I Just painted my jeep and it came out great. I did it in a single stage.
Now i want to do some flames on the hood and down the sides. I've never cut any paint b4. Is it very hard?? Can I do it in a single stage paint?? Anything special I need?
I have some hotrod magazine or something which kinda details how to do flames.
I'd send it to you, but unfortunatly I don't have a scanner.
I thought you used tape instead of cutting?
If no one else can help you here,they should have some books at a local library which will tell you how.
I'm no expert on this and hopefully someone could back me up on it but I have heard that "cutting" in the lines with vaseline or some other like product instead of tape works really well. It makes sense to me. It would take away the need to shape the tape with a knife and less scratching would occur(like I said, im no expert). So look into that and see what you find. When you're done, make another post about it...I'm curious.
PS. Let's see a friggin pic of your Jeep!!![img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
I just used the word "cut" as a figure of speach. Not sure what the true term is.. The color is a blue on the darker side. Not to dark though. Thought about painting the front grill and start then about 6in. in with the flames with a bright orange or yellow. Then im having the cage powder coated that same color. Sound good??
