    Here's one I just did....all One Shot with a Brush..........We were going to age it, but the old truck was so nice to have been painted 25-30 years ago, I couldn't age it....told him we could always come back and do it later.

    This is my old '62 Holden ute, I think it fits in with the theme of this thread. The nose art and pinstriping were painted by Sydney based artist Neo Dutch. My great uncle was a ground crew member of 22nd Squadron in WWII, and She's Apples was the name of one of their bombers. In Aussie slang, she's apples is like saying 'she'll be right mate, it's all good'.

    thanks :)
    not sure, the reaction at the show was great, and many said I should keep it like this because it was so different. the original plan was a proper shiny paint job if and when money allows. so that will be a good while for sure !!!!
