Here is my second attempt at a fresh paint job with a patina look. First picture is the before.

Matt,
That is spectacular!! Perfect colors.
Nice job. Did you brush it or what is your secret??
You do great work!

It was brush painted and then the dark brown and copper accents added.

Looks fantastic. Glad to see I am not the only one who loves that look. I leave them as found unless they need a little help to have the survivor look.

The Hancock decal is a new water transfer. I made it look old also.

Looks great! Did you cut the decal and gently spread apart before staining and clear coating ? Thanks, Dave

Dave, the decal was placed on it one piece then torn while on the door. I had the doors off so they were horizontal. It works better if you do not squeegee the water out first. These are water transfer and not vinyl.
