BMW Art Car

I am happy to report that our little project of turning our 320i BMW into a "Art Car" was a success. The prepping, priming and work paid of big time. We had roughly 27 different kids stop by during the Mazo Car show to try their hand at painting the car. One particular young boy keep coming back again and again and again. He just about did the entire hood himself. Our favorite moment of the day was when my brother Troy explained to a young boy to paint flames on the hood. So the kid painted the word "flames" across the hood. I guess he had never seen flames painted on a car before. It was very funny and got a lot of thumbs up and laughs.

What type of paint did you use?

Most craft-type paints don't hold up well to UV rays (One Shot seems to be the exception). You might consider a top coat of UV-resistant clear if it's going to be outside much.

They are all Automotive paints from Dupont, Enamels. Some single stage, some two stage.

Each color was actually from left overs from different projects we had painted at the shop. The Camaro, Met, Edsel, '60. Redhead Racings race cars. So it was kind of fun to throw them all on one car!

That boy who wrote FLAMES has such so much humor, eh? :D Thanks to him, the BMW Art Car Project became more memorable. Anyway, the overall upshot is fantastic. Kudos!
