This one is as pretty as it will ever get, it will be looking old and tired very soon.

I have to let the paint cure for a few days and then Mother nature is going to be not so kind to it.

After letting the paint dry, I added a few years of wear and tear to the paint work, I just wet sanded areas that looked like the sun would most likely damage. I will start weathering it with chalks hopefully tomorrow.

I want to keep a little"cool" factor to the old girl so the wheel and tire choice will be a set of Resin Torque Thrust style wheels wrapped in a set of Moebius wide whites.

How to ruin a perfect paint job in one easy lesson. Great start on the weathering Max.

Torquies..... my favourite wheels after Minilites!!

With the wet sanding finished it was time to really put some years on the old girl. I used artist chalks in various rust colors and mixed them together to get the colored affect i was looking for. I used a small grater to grate the chalk into a powder, then I used a small spray bottle to lightly mist the body where I was going to apply the chalk. Using makeup brushes ( I got mine at the dollar store, I knew better than to steal the wife's) I dabbed the chalk on the misted areas of the body with water. It will look like you are applying to much but you can wipe the excess away with a cloth made from an old t-shirt.
When I was pleased with the bulk weathering it was time to add the real rust. I used a similar technique to make the real rust spots except this time I used clear fingernail polish and dabbed or brushed the area to be rusted, I then dusted that area with a chalk mixture over the area with the fingernail polish on it and then just tapped the part on the bench to remove any excess chalk.
There are a lot of rusting jobs that don't look realistic to me. This one achieved what I wanted.

I used the water/chalk technique on the underside of the body, hood and bed. I love how easy this is and will use this technique from now on.

Haha, Thanks! Yeah this one went from hero to zero really quick. The technique is so easy to do, fast, and fun. The hardest part was stopping myself from turning it into a complete rust heap!

That's oh so true Max. Just remember, when it comes to weathering, less is more!!
