Default Re: kustom kruiser

i finished the tank the other day,i bondo'd the seam outta the tank,first time the clearcoat fisheyed,so i wet sanded it, painted it again ad the paint crackled on me,so then i took a sponge sander for wood and just scufffed it really good, then layed the clear over again, finally came out decent. paint is metal specks by duplicolor, it totally sucks, had a rosey hue to it, like it was kustom sunfaded already, so i mixed up a bunch of house of kolor red flake in the clear and it did the trick, makin it more of a candy color and now with kool metallics.this tank was molded wrong straight from the factory, i dont care though for just gonna cut the studs slightly and put some spike bolts and call it a day.
