    Here is one I just got done doing, I removed the center insert for the spray nozzle, finished up with a semi-Matt automotive urethane clear coat to give it that old time lacquer look.

    I have a badger 155 air brush.
    If you remove that cap it will not likely spray ever again.
    There is the tiniest o ring in there that blows up like a balloon when released from captivity.
    If you cannot get that resealed it will not siphon from the jar.

    Quoted from jrpinball:

    Looks great. I don't have any spray equipment or an airbrush, but I did finally get a Weiler brush. Can you give us a general idea how to use it for both webbing and spatter?

    Bend out 3 or 4 bristles. Dip in the paint. Pull back on the bristles and let them go. Hold close to the cab for webbing. Further away for spatter. That's it.

    It takes some practice. I still practice each time I do one.

    I'm not going to lie, I clicked on this topic thinking it would be stupid to recreate what some might consider to be "factory imperfections". Having said that, after viewing your work, I'm truly amazed by the detail you guys are putting into your restorations. Great work.

    Where did you get the brush? I did a search for Weiler brush and saw multiple types.

    Weiler part number 92895.
    They make dozens of different wire brushes. This may be their simplest and least expensive one.

    I couldn't find one in any hardware or home supply store around here.
    My wife got one on line. Probably from Amazon. There are cheaper online sources.

    I purchased a "Splatter Brush" on Amazon to do this repair job on a wedgehead. But with any method, practice on a piece of cardboard first.
