Hi Steven!  Unfortunately the Gravity Colors are meant for airbrush...unfortunately you may have to brush paint like John2 or wait for warm weather.  An alternative might be to warm the spray paint in warm water, run outside and shoot the paint quickly and back indoors quickly.  I’m out of ideas I guess...perhaps others would like to share their winter painting solutions!

Would this build have to be from an original kit, or could I use just an aftermarket resin cab as the '34 part? Sort of a Frankenstein build. Heh heh. Just wondered. I would be OK if it required the kit to start with.

What does the aftermarket cab have?

Uh......pretty much nothing with it. Just a chopped resin cab. I should probably just buy the whole model kit, unless somebody has a few of them, and would trade for something?

I saw a 1:1 street rod of our truck today.  Metallic green..  So cool.

John2...
Question on brush painting.....Do you paint directly on the plastic, or do brush on a primer first?

Sounds good to me.  March 31. 

We are going to swap out our bedroom and "fun" room beginning Jan. 1.  We need a bigger "fun" area.

So the extra time will be to our advantage.  My glue and exacto knife share space with hers plus thread, needles, succulents, and cactus.

What a great life.

Sounds good to me, too. I think it is a fair compromise between 1 and 5 months to build.
