The following series of photos James Haines took of his super datailed 1953 Ford ForDor Sedan. Starting with a plain Mainline ForDor he added the Customline side moldings and a paint job that is second to none. To top that gorgeous paint job off, he added bare-metal-foil to the vent windows and then the door handles and locks for good measure.
This has to be one of the best paint jobs I've seen yet. Black is tough because it shows every flaw...of which there are none here.
Looks good from any angle
Wish I could paint like this :-(
Some great Bare-Metal-Foil work too!

"How do I know how much paint I'll need?"
If you're going to do a TuTone paint job, a 1 oz. bottle of each color will usually do the job even if you've got very little experience with an air brush.
If you're going to do a single color paint job a 1oz. bottle will do the job if you're an experienced modeler. If you've never used an air brush before, go with a 1 oz bottle only if you feel lucky...otherwise get a 2 oz. bottle just to be sure you've got enough from the same batch in case you need to spray on another coat.
An order form for our paints is included with your kit allowing you to select any of the solid or two tone colors that were originally used on this car.
Please note that all colors are approximate due to differences in monitors and the way systems and browsers interpret colors. All paints are mixed from original color charts of the era.
Two-tone paint was not available on the Mainline series but dealers who had body shops often provided that service for their customers.
