1965 Chevrolet Pickup

Leon Betts

Now for something a little different.
You may recall that we are working on a 65 Chev Pickup project and had decided that it was a great candidate for a 'rat rod'. Here are some pics of the almost completed paint job. Three different colours were laid, white and green. Then we rubbed through the paint in few places to give the truck some artificial 'age' before finishing with a matt clear coat. The roof and rear window surround were then painted white to provide some contrast for the green lacework. For those not in the know...this is a process where lace material is laid on the surface to form a pattern when painted. The laced area was then dusted with a coat of a subtle green pearl before being finished with a couple of coats of gloss clear. The bonnet and bumpers will go on tomorrow. I will share some more pics then.
