    I never really intended to do as much airbrushing as I do..... I got hooked in the 70's seeing all those heavily flaked cars, candy apple paint jobs, fish scales and all of that...... So I got to painting my car out in the street. I was only 18. I got a cheapo airbrush to do some candy fogging.... And then one thing led to another. Anyway, what about a Custompaint section? Especially as the old styles have returned, sadly some of the paints have all,but disappeared........ But perhaps we can find new ways of creating old styles? Just a thought.

    I was only thinking that yesterday as it happens ..... like Deja Vu lol
    I know we don't have the gas guzzlers over here but I'm going to the KKBO (google it lol) the end of the month and hope to get a lot of ideas and contacts in the custom scene ;)

    Although I'd agree that custompaint should have its own section there are already so many sections on the forum I'm not sure iff it would be usefull. I for one only use the quick navigation "recent activity" and "new posts" and bookmark realy interesting stuff as I'm afraid I won't be able to find it anymore otherwise :).

    No gas guzzlers in UK? This was one of mine in the UK..... :p Miss it like hell! You going to KKBO? Not as an exhibitor, are you? I know a lot of guys that have in the past offering custom paint and airbrushing. None of them got anything from it... It is more a lifestyle show.
