'65 Tattoo Dancer

Post by GothicKustomz on Fri 14 Jun 2013, 8:10 am

Yep I knew it, burn out! yea on the Twisted Intentions, was just a matter of time, so for, an inspiration build, "SIGH" I'm gonna do this one, I have everything i need right here, this will be sorta just outa the box, with a few scratch built things, ummmm sorta:








Using Windex as a dechromer, tho I'm sure ya could use Amonia, as that is the leading ingrediant in Windex, hmmmmmm, I got a jug of that too, should try it out see if it works:



Most of the suspension that will be scratch built, so keep an eye out on here.




I did use straight Amonia, it works great, tho it didn't take the gloss undercoat off, it only took about 15 min to dechrome, the part, I think I got a gallon jug of the stuff from the Dollar Tree, worth the investment.

Dechromed, using straight Amonia, now if you go this route, use a toothbrush to scrub, right out of the amonia bath, the old under clear coat came right off, sat in the amonia about 2-3 hours, then rinse, and wash using dish detergant.

IIRC metal + base = salt + water.
So you are making some sort of chromate solution there.

I've not seen this release of the '65.  Decals look good.
