I want to paint my old amtrak f7 into something like this... not to "ruin it" ( :lol: ) but because someone did a crappy job on the phase II that it is currently painted in
(i will probably do more "what ifs" and other repaints later and post them here)

well in preparation for the SCT tommorow I did some strees relieving painting. I did a SD70Ace into Rio Grande "bumble bee" this would be like what santa fe did by going back to the warbonnet.
