So I finally started. After many days of trying to find the right paint for the Bullitt, I settled on Scale Finishes. Placed the order today. Seriously, there is a huge internet fight going on between the US Gravity Colors & the UK Gravity Colors. Both claim to be the best car model paints out there.
I didn’t want any piece of that, just wan’t paint. From what I read online, ScaleFinishes.com is a solid company and their colors are spot on.
In the mean time I thought I’d post the “Heart of the Legend”. Here is the power plant for my Bullitt. Plus, those signature American Racing rims.
You wouldn’t believe how much I labored over the right color metallic gray for the inner rims. Finally settled on a mix of gunmetal gray & steel. They work. I think in photos the inner rims look darker because they spin against the darker brake rotors and drums.
Sorry for the poor image quality. As I wait for the paint to show up, I’ll be moving on to the under carriage. Stay cool.
