james hetfield's cigar store indian

James Hetfield Hired me to paint his fibreglass cigar store Indian this fall so I decided to document it.
That's when my pal Jon Bastien came in with his Super 8 cam and editing skills. (Thanks bro!)
The Indian it's self was in ruff shape and the finish quite porous so I teemed up with my pal Rolfe Britain to smooth it all out, Bondo and shoot the flake. Unfortunately I didn't get any shots of the airbrushing and candy process.
After the initial paint I broke out the 1-shot and went to work.
