Hand Lettering 54 Chevy wagon



 My husband has always loved hotrods....
This 54 Chevy wagon belongs to someone who often asks my husband to paint for him....
 So today he painted this logo on the two back windows....
 Since this was on glass he first laid it out with a white grease pencil....
He uses 1 shot enamel paint and mineral spirits to thin the paint...
 It takes a very steady hand...I know I sometimes help him paint depending on the project...
 Today I was just the photographer...messing around with manual mode on the camera 
 Typically he does more of this in the spring when guys are gearing up to do car shows....

 So he usually gets a few guys calling around this time wanting him to pinstripe or letter something....
 He enjoys doing it too...
And we enjoy seeing the various cars that come through our garage....

 This one is fun...it would make a great family car
We were able to get it outside for a little while to get some nice shots in between rain showers here and there....
