I used a brush for the lettering, but I used cellulose paint so didn't have to drag brush just dab it on until wet and even.

Re: ChrisUK's New GP Sporting

Looks even better on. What paint did you use? It looks textured - like the way the red on Ferrari engines is.

Re: ChrisUK's New GP Sporting

It's not the paint. I used acid etch primer which seems to have like a grit in it .
