    I've just finished my latest repainting job, I was hoping the color should be
    "Azzurro Metallico" but I belive it turned out a bit darker, so I need to find a name for this color.
    Anyway, this time I took some pix during this prosess just to show you how to
    repaint a car with the best result as possible.
    This time I took this red F50 from Bburago and stripped it totaly down....
    (more to come)

    ...and now for the scary part - I used this stuff (the can reads:for heavens sake do NOT drink) LOL - and I didnt - this is some kind of acid, it burns the old paint right off the car.....and it actually works.....

    Hi
    Thanx - this process took about 5-6 hours, this is not the first car I do, first time I used almost 3 days (well, not actually 3 full days, but a few hours after work)
    Glad you liked it

    That blue is interesting, like slag328's real car! I would love to see what a real F50 would look like in that color.

    Hi jordan747_400
    The pain I use is a regular car spray can paint which you can get in a regular hardware store, the same with the "acid", I asked for somekind of stuff thats remove old paint and REALLY works, and I did.
    If you're gonna repaint a model you dont HAVE to remove the old paint you can also use a fine sandpaper and rub the old paint just to make a "grip" for the primer.
    If you havent done this befor it might be a good thing to practice on a broken
    1/24 model or something - so you dont mess up your nice 1/18 model.
    Hope this helps.

    Hey Lukas
    Heia Sverige!! lol
    Jag tror du er kjend med en affær som heter Biltema - dom har alt du behøver for at måla om din bil - jag brukar Biltema bil primer och spraymåling.
    Primeren er kun for at få spraymålingen till at festa seg.
    Når det gjelder den her syran jag brukar, så behøver du inte att gjøra det, det rekker med ett fint sandpaper och du slipa ned bilen lite, du behøver inte slipa bort den gamla lacken - bara ripa den upp så du får feste til primeren.
    Tackar
    Min svenska e lite så som så...lol

    The acid I used is made in Norway, so I dont think you'll able to buy this can in the US, but if you ask the guy who works in the hardware stor I'm sure he'll help you out.
    But remember ask for some stuff that REALLY works - if not you might end up with some lame product sold on TVshop or something, and you'll have to wait for about 14 days for the paint to come off. LOL
    The acid looks like snivel/snoth (stuff that come out of your nose when you got the cold) hehe
    If you decide to use this acid thing, make sure that you remove ALL of the old paint - it could be a pain in the a$$ job to remove all the paint in corners and all that.
    But if you dont remove ALL the paint, it will be visible through the new paint.
    so my advice, take it eeeeasy.
    Good luck and let me know how you're doing with your project.

    Hi John
    Glad you liked it....and found it :)
    My next one...hmmm I'm not quite sure, I do got a can with purple metallic in my basement which I havent used yet, so maybe its gonna be that one - I've also been thinking of P I N K - yepp, Barbie F50 - it just CANT be any good, but I'm very curious of how it will be.
    So we'll see, I got F50's coming in "all" the time so its no waste.

    If any of you have any cool ideas for colors, please let me know.:)
