OK Folkes…here are the final pics of the Aged Metal RIPPED EVO GT that Ive been showing you the paint in process pics of. (CLICK HERE for WIP articles)
This thing is all paint except for the lights which are high quality metallic ink and custom made.
I also used nearly all waterbased “Wicked Color” from Createx. The only exception is intercoat and final urethane automotive clears and also alclad chrome for the base color of the metal layer prior to the aging process. I did a LOT of work with a “hairy stick” (aka paint brush..lol) on this one. Nearly all the ripped effect “ripples” shadow effects were done with wicked and auto air colors and transparent base all mixed on a pallet to achieve the right hue and transparency. The silver pearl around the edges gives a natural highlight and shadow effect which similates a freshly torn metal edge nicely. Shadows to the rips complete the look, appearing to be raised above the aged metal surface.
One OF ONE!! Hand signed on wing, incorporated into a rip.
SORRY, this one IS SOLD!!

Candied Chevy Silverado ..Done!
Man I loooove how this one turned out!
Candy Red and Black Cherry two tone.
Candy Pagan Gold, Tangerine, and Red.flames..three layers of ’em on the hood and some ghosty ones down upper sides.
Riding on some dub 5 spokes up front and wider rears from the “front” of a BigTime Muscle ride. Low but with an aggressive stance…rolls great!
Polished metal front bumper along with the detailed black grill and white headlights. Also added chrome trim details to fender openings and window trim. Tail lights done with flame red and chrome. Polished and detailed exhaust tips too.
Details to interior as well.
This one of one is no longer available but hope you like the pics!!

Aged metal ripped Evo GT-Last look before final clear!
So….here are the last wip pics. Its just gotten its last intercoat clear to seal up final details and the lights..now its in line for final clear process. Wont be long before its ready for sale! Notice the signature on wing..hand painted. In fact the only things “not” hand painted are the lights. But even those are ultra high quality metallic ink decals!
Black Gold Tribal VW Drag Bus -peek!
Aged Metal Evo GT..More Detail and Shadows for the rips!
I managed to get a little more done to the rips of the Aged Metal Evo GT before all the hooplah with site issues hit me!! lol
This has nearly 100% hairy stick work for the rips details and shadows. I just thought it worked well and was able to get some airbrush like effects from some of the ripple areas. Again, I was using Transparent Base and Wicked Colors from createx. Just a few drops of all colors on a pallet, mixed as needed to get the transparency level and hue I was looking for on the given area. Im probably going to lay some intercoat clear on it to get a better idea of what its going to look like finished. Will keep ya posted!!
Upgraded the Hosting Server – A little downtime
Some of you may have noticed the site was down or experienced some failed logins or page loads today.
** SORRY **
But Ive finally got everything back to functional I believe.
I had to upgrade the hosting server to a newer, faster and better (so Im told! lol) machine, which entailed moving the site from one machine to another and there were a few bumps along the way.
If anyone experiences any problems from this point on, please post or message on the Facebook Fan Page to give me a headz up.
THANKS..now maybe I can get something painted!!!
Aged metal Evo WIP -detail to rips begins!
Aged metal Evo GT gets -ripped-!
Here’s another process shot of the worn metal Evo GT. I did a custom mixed fade of pearl yellow to pearl orange. All wicked colors with gold pearl flake and high performance reducer used for the fade. I did the rips with hand torn strips of masking tape…gives it a really nice organic rough edge.
