Holy Hearse Update

New progress on the 'Holy Hearse'!

Again, thanks to Gene Turner at GT Grafix [www.gtairbrushing.com] for allowing me to work with him on this project. If you're in the Columbia, Greenville, Newberry SC area, check him out.

Monday I spent the day at Gene's shop to get more done on the hearse. So far I have just about all of the color done on the 'Last Supper' scene. I'm going to jump to the rear passenger side door and work on that next. Then I'll come back to the quarter panel with fresh eyes and tighten up the detail some.

Even though it's an entire quarter panel, it's still a bit tedious trying to capture detail and still try and make it look like the original. Fine detail in tight spaces is a bit time consuming.

Once I'm done with the quarter panel and the rear passenger door, I'll be jumping over to the left quarter panel to help 'fix' some work that an apprentice attempted.

The project was recently mentioned on the local radio station and is scheduled to be pictured [with an interview] in the AP news once we are done and the clear coat is put on.

The project is for a traveling missionary who will drive the hearse from New York City to California. The plan is that the entire trip will be documented on YouTube. After that trek, the hearse will be shipped to the UK for another trip.

Word is that the owner has another hearse lined up for potential work. I'm hoping he'll let us go Rob Zombie medival on it and put a hell scene on it. Or maybe something that looks like zombies crawling out of it. Then again, a Ghost Busters variation would be cool. But that's just me.

Check back for more updates!
