    first paint job

    This week I plan to paint my first body. I already have the decals on, via lexan glue. I plan to have a three colored paint scheme with racing stripes. Does anyone have any advice or tips? How well does Liquid masking work?

    I printed out some logos on to photo paper, then glue them on the inside. Worked like a charm.

    yea, there, the catalogs from them. And on the tags of the products you buy from them. Buy a body? There's tips on the back of the info tag thing.
