I just wanted to share a cool trick I got from youtube.

You can use colored markers to test drive a paint job before committing to it. While the protective film is still on the outside of the body you can draw/paint on it and it'll wipe right off with alcohol.

I tried out a few different ideas tonight and I'm glad I did. I only changed little details but I like my final "test run" much better than my original idea.

I remember 30+years ago painting my first bodies, I would use markers on the outside body to draw flames as a guide for masking the inside. But bodies back then had no plastic wrap. I would spend much time using alcohol and plastic polish to get the marker lines off. Todays bodies all come with plastic wrap. (y):cool:

Reminds me of my beater Jeep Cherokee I drove in my 20s that had like 3 different colors because it had a lot of junkyard body panel replacements lol
