This year my show car got a change of theme and colours ready for the modified nationals in Peterborough.
I have always painted sections of the car for previous years and shows but wanted a more dramatic change and went for a full new colours and new theme.
For the new theme the front of the car is black with various big cats airbrushed onto it and the back of the car is now a bright orange with holographic flake over the top. there are some tribal designs and flame effects to brake up the colour sections..
I also altered body work to change the look of the car and make it more modern and streamlined.removing dated features including radio atenna, boot lock, badges and rear wiper, all were then fiber glassed and filled ready for prepwork and primer before the new paint theme went on.
Next the car received new tiger designs and theme over a black base. Then off to the booth where I painted an orange base on the back of the car.
whilst in the spray booth I added flame effects to the sills and around the door shuts and rear bumper. then the car was ready for its clearcoats.
3 days later and it was at its first show – the modified nationals in Peterborough.
