Oh yes I will get some pics

This is just 1 but I think it will get someone an idea the body i found is 1 2/4th scale its unpainted resign.
When my house burned down and I lost everything they stepped in and helped so doing this is very important to me.

Paint that yourself 🤔👌🏼 looks fairly straight forward 👍🏼
@dougstar 1/24th is a bit more complicated.

@Fireblade99 considering the size of of the shell you want painted, I think you will be far better served looking for a scale model forum. There are a ton of guys who can do a 1:24 scale body and actually make it look like the real thing.

The miscreants on this forum can hardly string together a coherent thought, let alone paint such a small shell.

So true. :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO:

Looking at that picture I think some detail may be hiding. I think the Light gray is reflection or hidden detail because of the angle of the pic (side of the car) . I can't tell.

Yah I will figure it out one way or another thanks for the Inputs
Colors by Dave if he still does it!

He did this one for me on my 1/10 scale ,it was my design ,I wrote down what I wanted ,an he knocked it out of the park ,
he added the hot embers in the bed on his own!.. :cool:

Wow that is a great looking paintjob
I had been trying to find a larger model of his car his is based on 97 Oldsmobile Cutlass I had a hard time finding that.
