Looks good despite the camera trouble!!!

Maybe we should change the name of the forum to "Car Modeling - not Photography". :cry:

Here are pics of the actual pieces. What I need help doing is painting the Flat Black (B). The paint goes in grooves and I have never done it before.

Add a really thin semi gloss black to the groves, and they automatically run to fill the gap.
Enamel is best for this, and you are looking for a 50/50 mix of black and thinner.
Use a small brush too!

JE123, I just did that exact same thing on my 1969 Camaro.

It has a grill (chrome plated) and it has grooves like yours. I painted the middle of it flat black using a toothpick to get the paint into the grooves.

Then I went over that several times with a brush to even it out. It looked a little gloppy in the grooves but it looks good now that it's dried.

I had to touch up a few spots on the grill the next day as the paint doesn't want to stick to the chrome too well.

Hope this helps,

Macka

PS Yikes! I'm giving advice here?!?

The grills i have done i have painted it black and then used a cloth to wipe the paint of the raised bits. The paint will stay in the grooves, plus the paint does not stick very well to the chrome which makes it easy to wipe of.
