Re: Info about Pinhead RaceTrack? Storys, Rules, Dolly Partons?

We had a road course on a 4x8 sheet of plywood in Northern California quite a few years ago..... I haven't seen it in quite a while. When we started, the contestants were judged on line quality with time deducted for each mistake.... after a while the quality gave way to speed as guys started adding...

Re: Painting Stasinless Steel

Stainless steel shouldn't need any different prep than any other kind of metal. It will need to be sanded or roughed up so that there is enough "tooth" for the paint to stick. Paint will not stick well to a polished surface. You didn't say what kind of thing you are painting, but whenever possible I...

Re: I need everyones help on this one - Please read and respond!

I don't know why you would be using rustoleum on this project anyway. I believe it contains some sort of fish oil which will mess with anything you try to put over it. (fish eyes...No pun intended)
Use one shot for everything and you shouldn't have any problems.

Kelly, It certainly looks like the truck was originally yellow with silver colored leaf, although I have never seen an older fire truck that was not red.

Yes ! Do something which is representative of the type of work you want to do, or at least work that into the copy....just don't use every technique in your bag of tricks......maybe do something different on each side......?
