Well i may have had to call out the RAC twice: once in Birmingham and once in Bodmin BUT the TR7 is now all tucked away nice and cozy in my lock up. And, lets be fair to it, it made it all the way to Bodmin from Birmingham, the car is older than me!
Admittedly, i have bartered with every mechanic in Newquay to work on the car over winter in exchange for some airbrush work on their cars/bikes/helmets...yes there are a lot of people involved, i thought it would be best!!!! BUT...she says hopefully, by next summer, she's going to be running beautifully (as much as a TR7 can) with a stunning airbrush piece on it by yours truly. The car even has a good sense of humour; with a sporty 911 number plate on it my TR7 does a very good impression of a porche... those of you that are a bit more pessimistic may suggests that it is more reminiscent of an infamous tragedy!
So, the big plan is to fix it up, paint it black, put a bird of prey (as my company is silverbird) on the bonnet with true fire flailing from front to back. If anyone has any other suggestions then please comment.
This is my new logo designed by Tom Mercer. I'm loving it but can't decide on the font. The one you can see across the bird is the one i initially chose but let me know what you think... i also quite like 1, 2 and 5.... it's all so confusing!!!
Auto-air colors user guide dvd review:
Well heres my first airbrush dvd review... I thought i'd start on a good one!
Now it has to be said that airbrush dvd's aren't not the most riveting sources of late night entertainment... i suffer from insomnia and i generally would recommend an airbrush dvd to any fellow sufferers as an instant cure HOWEVER some of them are invaluable and if you're a fan of auto-air paints then this dvd is certainly worth it's weight in gold. This dvd will show you exactly how to use auto-air paints based on their series, inc special effects. It's easy to follow and Simon Murray of SM designs explains everything in a way that's very easy to follow. The menu is split by the different paint series so t's easy to navigate to the sections you need (although it would be more helpful if they did it by names ie. candy paints as well as the series numbers). I'f i had to have one airbrush dvd this would be it! It's a priceless string to your bow if you use auto-air paints. It's not only shows you how these paints can compete against urethanes but it shows you that these water based paints can be advantageous over their urethane counterparts.
What i get most annoyed about when watching airbrush dvd's is that you feel you're getting ripped off and that the dvd is just a crap piece of marketing that's trying to get you to buy overpriced stencils and left you £30 worse off. "Auto-air colors user guide" is not one of those dvd's... if you use auto-air paints, buy the dvd, it will save you money!
