You'll have to bear in mind that the journey actually began here at Hobby Talk back in 2007. It's a chronological adventure that frequently wanders off course, or in and out of focus. Important stuff gets added, updated, or changed along the way with little or no warning...or not....LOL! It's my hobby, not my job. ;)

It's also important to note that the techniques I use are specifically tailored for original color matched restoration work on injection molded bodies. Certainly one could substitute other products or techniques with acceptable results if your painting conventionally.
