I did this Stang back in '07, before I knew moddig PW's was a real hobby! Stang was red when i bought it for my daughter brand new. Just happened to be around the same time a got into airbrushing so appropriately... this is what happened























I no longer have access to the car to do more mods. My lil man's sister ( she's not my bio daughter) has it and her mother will not let me take it to trick it some more

I would suggest learning for yourself. Get a brush and hit up you tube for tutorials. You will get $$RAPED$$ to have someone else do it unless you know them real well. These are my two favorite hobbies and they go together so well

You should go buy an airbrush... so when I go up to cali you can do mine. I am not artistic at all. I cant even draw a straight line.

I used homemade stencils. Print your design on paper and cut out with a razor... POW!, you now have talent!

Post an add on CL, I bet someone would jump all over that deal. Worth a shot.
Make sure you get an IWATA gravity feed airbrush and a compressor with a tank, very important. If you have any ??'s about it feel free to hit me up.

For entry level, the Badger kits aren't bad, I have the Paasche VL airbrush, and I have been nothing but happy with it for about 15 years.

I do not recommend a siphon feed airbrush. Gravity feed is the way to go. I suggest IWATA brand. Check this link:

http://www.rexart.com/airbrushmain.html

For starting out, I have seen a brush/compressor combo by IWATA in my local art store and i believe it was well priced. When i got a friend of mine started that is what he bought. In my opinion there is no "beginner" airbrush; you best to just jump in and learn. If you learn how to drive an 18 wheeler first, learning to drive a VW will be a cake walk!

Siphon feed brushes like the ones from Badger are great for doing larger surfaces but not good for detail work. IWATA will not disappoint.

So would this be a good one? http://www.rexart.com/product2707.html

The price isn't bad, and it says its better for beginners.

That one is perfect!!Good price too, I'm really surprised. IWATA will never steer you wrong, regardless of the price it is a quality airbrush.

Oh, one more thing: Get a dual action trigger fine line airbrush much like the one that Fjcruiser found. Dual action trigger is desired because you control the air flow and paint volume seperately. Push down for air and pull back for paint. Further you push or pull the higher the volume of air and/or paint. Single action is constant for both. Keep the questions comin'!!

I suppose that's a matter of preference.

I will say that a good compressor/air tank with regulator is as important as the airbrush you choose. Clean and steady air flow is an absolute necessity.

Very true, it is preference and you are right about the compressor. It MUSt have a tank or you end up with a dotted line effect that makes it hard to get your desired results. Regulator is also important.

I'm thinkin that those of us that are good with an airbrush should put together an FAQ for the subject. What do you think?

I might have some simple suggestions for you but i would need you to be more specific. Explain what you mean by 3D. Also fill me in on your artistic abilities so i can make a better rec. Pitch the idea for me and I'll see what i can offer

Ohhhhhh... you meant a REAL car! That changes the whole game. With a car that nice you are prob. better off having a professional do it cuz the type of paint and process changes dramatically. If you really want to do it yourself then first things first, I would suggest getting REALLY comfortable with an airbrush and get lots of practice on your PW's. Let me sit on this for a minute and I'll get back to you.

Modmom32- I think this might help a little. It's showing how to do ghost flames which is the effect you're lookin for. Granted you will have to modify it to fit your needs. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eVvTEfDB3v0

And this one shows a different effect but it is also really cool.

I figured it would be easier to show you rather than try to explain it. Let me know what you think and if this helps any; if not I'll try again!
