    it will all be fake patina. i figgered i would go ahead and letter it like it would have been in the old days. i will eventually do body work and put shiney paint on it.i know i'll get mixed reactions about the fake patina, but what the hell!

    Cool beans, a "real" race car with race car lettering rather than poser numbers on a street car.

    I'd polish the blue when the lettering has had plenty of time to set up to give it that "we've been racing it for ever but still shine it up" look.

    Looks great and I think it will look good with the "patina" , you my friend deserve better then that natural light for all that quality work.

    A lot of fake patina looks fake. Yours does not. If you hadn't told us, I'd have thought it was old lettering from back in the day.

    That looks great! I'm a newbie at striping/lettering so seeing this technique (done well) is really cool for me. Great job!!!

    Just got back from L.A. Roadster show. Your work is just like that on cars from Rolling Bones Speed Shop. Great.
