Hi,

Sorry at first, my enlish isnt very well


I diceded to make my car looking "rat", because my luggage compartment lid starts to rust.

I have designed a model in Photoshop, how i want to design my car. (This picture isnt real, all colors and patterns are made in photoshop, further i dont have this wheels)

Image


I buyed some rust-color, which i will use to paint my car.

First i painted my engine hood cover to test this rust-color

Image



Next Weekend the Project will continues, and i post some more pictures

I decided to paint my metallic green car first with the color "leather Brown" (RAL 8027), because the opacity of the rust-paint isnt very high. I want to save some money.

1 litre cost about 60€, i think if i only use the Rust-Paint i need about 10-14 litres for my car (cause of the low opacity) , that costs about 600€ to 900€ / (800$ - 1200$).

The spray-paint "leather Brown" (RAL 8027), has much more opacity and is much cheaper, i need only about 2 litres to paint my car. After i sprayed that "leather brown", i try to paint only a small layer of the rust-color over the sprayed brown. I hope the rust-effect is still good.
