that for all the great feedback everybody!
To answer a few questions... i would LOVE to get it up and running one day, but im not sure i have the resources. For now, i think I'm going to donate the car to our school for it's sculpture garden. (As pres. of the national art honor society, i get to decide what goes on display
). If that falls through, i know plenty of public gardens that would love to keep the car. if its on display in the public, i feel like its going to good use instead of a becoming a waste.
secondly, i used acrylic paint- a LOT of it. At first, i used house paint mixed with different tints, but it was way too runny and transparent. I cleaned the car well and just painted right onto it. Finally, i sealed it with this car spray my dad had in the garage.
p.s: the car survived it's first snowfall today! it was so gorgeous under the blanket of white...
