Default Airbrushed some Fire on a Ford intake...

I painted this for a friend before but he dropped it on the way home, I felt bad for him so after a month of not finding the time to do it I finally got it repainted. I painted it both times as a favor so he cant complain about the wait lol.

What do you guys think?
This is now only the 4th time painting with an Airbrush so I dont claim to be a professional.
I have painted other items with an actual Gun before but you gotta have alot more patients using an Airbrush

Thanks guys.
You should definitely try it out.
It really doesnt cost that much and honestly if you can spend more time on it than myself you will make money off it.

I use an Iwata hp-cs gun and a little $200 compressor. The paint kit was $60 and I still have alot left after painting a few items. I really like this gun too because it will also do detail work (fine lines etc) as you can see with the little model car over to the side lol.

Yes you can buy the flame kit with True Fire/Green/Blue from Kustomshop on Ebay (or the website) or you can buy the House of Kolor kits for a little extra.

Andy I sent you a PM.

The paint on the Intake actually holds up great! I painted a friends 5.0 intake (I know whats up with all the damn 5.0 intakes lol) with High temp clear and it has been a year and its still in excellent condition.

Great job man! I did my engine cover a few weeks ago...

Air brushing is a great hobbie that does not take long to get good at, (when I say "get good", I mean good enough to sell!) You can find alot of different guns, paint kits, and mini compressors in air brush action magazine. The magazine is also a great place to get some ideas when starting out, after your done doing straight lines!.

Thanks man and I like your work, its great to see the different styles and thats whats so great about airbrushing.

The only thing that is time consuming is the prep and the numerous steps to paint it, if you have the time yes its true you could make money off of it.
