My buddy Roger brought his Model A over for a flame session last week. Roger is a trusting soul as he had seen my two previous attempts on my 35 coupe and on a Harley Davidson I flamed a few years ago (actually more like 7 years ago). I hadn't touched my airbrush since then except to do a few touchups. Of course he wasn't going to make me (or is that a trust issue?) freehand tape the flames like I did on my car and the Harley. He brought some templates he picked up from Eastwood and some 10" masking tape (Sticky Mickey). At least that gets me off the hook if he didn't like the results. The A required quite a bit of sanding as the finish could best be described as scotch grain flat black. There was quite a bit of orange peel to deal with. I made Roger do most of the sanding.....nice guy that I am. Once we (Roger) got the sides reasonably slick I started the taping. Then I taped up the template. Then a quick coat of Krylon. Pull off the template and here's what you get.
