60's Works Rally Dashboard
Posted 08 February 2010 - 06:49 AM
I had a go at making a 60's period works rally dashboard yesterday, Ive only made the drivers side so far but it turned out pretty well. It took a few hours to make but this was mainly due to having to make jigs etc to make some of the folds in the metal. All I need to do now is stick it in primer and paint it with some 'period' style paint
Oh and I made it for a left hand drive car, as im going to try and sell it on ebay, ive noticed alot of people abroad like their 'works' goodies
pictures to follow this evening.

I wasnt sure where I could get crackle black paint from so Ive bought a spray can of Hammerite Hammered Black to try.

also known as crackle finish
If you search on Google for 'Wrinkle finish paint' you will find tonnes of the stuff.

Is the stuff from B&Q in a spray can or brush on?
its in a spray can! just make sure when u paint it, its at a good temperature, or it wont work right, and go all wrong, n ull have to strip it all off and start again!
