After being inspired by Gumtrees effort I made the call and bought some patto's decals and stripped my 2010 Winterbottom FG Falcon. The paint used is Tamiya fine white primer, colours are PPG black base and House of kolor Marine blue and clear coated with Debeers 2K.
1 Naked frosty, original paint and decals were removed after taking a swim in the break fluid bath then scubbed chemtech degreaser to remove all residue.

dried and inspected to make sure all seams and scribings are clear then primed with Tamiya fine white primer.

Made a bit of mistake here normally I would spay light to dark colours but jumped the gun so I paint the whole car with PPG black base, I then masked up all the windows,
using the decal I held them up to the side of the car marking the lines required. I also google for pics of the car to use as referances

after masking the body was painted with HOK marine blue not the exact colour but close enough. Mirrors were painted with debeers ford octane orange, rear wing was laft black.

After all masking has been removed


entire car remasked to paint headlights and taillight should have done this step at the start would been less masking then. The mirrors were maked and painted black as per referance photo's.

All masking were removed and scubbed with degreaser to remove any oil or masking residue then clear to give a nice smooth glossy surface for the decals to stick to.

nearly finished just a couple more decal to go with a couple of touch ups and it'll be right for sealing with debeers 2K clear.
