Boyz had a Audi TT Scalley chassis and motor out back just rusting out.

They pulled the stock wheels off and replaced with some Truxmore chrome wheels also hanging out.

Stretched that frame and with a recently acquired 57 1/32 Revell kit decided this will be their Christmas project!!

The Boyz wish they had kept the one they sold off that you can see in the garage lot behind them!!

I'd love to get my grubby little mitts on one of those kits some day. Will watch with interest.

Re: 57 Ford Fairlane in Dark Yellow first coat

Boyz applied the first of two colors to the 57 Ford Tamiya Dark Yellow today.

They are going for a classic two-tone look, with just a little extra flash here and there.

The Boyz applied the Tamiya Dark Green (RAF) second coat today.

Next is experimenting with the new chrome pen everyone has been talking about vs. the tried and true Sharpie Silver pen.

Fingers are crossed!!

Re: 57 Ford Fairlane hanging Molotow Pen Chrome

Postby Dundee Denny » Sat Dec 16, 2017 5:19 pm

Boyz decided to hang some Molotow Liquid Pen Chrome as well as original equipment chrome to the Fairlane.

The Molotow experience was overall very positive with these little bumps

*always tape any area you don't want chrome, because it isn't coming off
*be sure and really score the tape, because it will find any weak points in the tapes seal
*decide left to right or right to left, and never deviate from that, you don't want to go back over your work in a different direction

With those rules it really looks good!!!!

It looks really nice Denny! Your a expert on the two tone paint jobs!

I want to try the chrome pens out, but I don't think I am going to hang up my chrome foil yet! :lol:

Also-
*always tape any area you don't want chromed (it will come off just fine with a razor knife, don't worry)
*be sure and really score the tape, because it will find any weak points in the tapes seal (yes, it will slip under the masking tape the same way any thinned paint will, so burnish it well just as you should anyway)
*decide left to right or right to left, and never deviate from that, you don't want to go back over your work in a different direction (this is important- When you lay the chrome on, it sets as it is intended. If you recoat before it sets, you mess up the product finish.)
* if you want to put a gold foil in the side streak of this car as the real car had, there are many manufacturers of excellent gold metallics for that, just do the chrome afterwards to make a good finish.

Good luck. It works very well as many of us have discovered.
