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.
