Default Leaf,Lace,Scallops and Cobwebs.

Gold Leaf !
Lace !
Scallops !
Cobwebs !

I shot some cobwebs on a van or two back in the day. Straight lacquer from a distance left a pretty cool image. Multiple clear coats to level it and there you are. I would suspend it in clear, sort of.
Base coat, couple of clear coats, shoot the cobwebs and cover it with more clear. Wet sand and buff.

How about some images and pictures of some really cool paint jobs and trick stuff, maybe even how it's done, from the days of old.

Not anything new. NO 70's Funny Cars/dragsters.

Remember, it's a nostalgia Stock/Super Stock forum.

Early Pro Stock and AWB allowed.

Check how the word BOGUS is faded behind the owner's name.
Pretty cool for the times.
