Relax, it's always slow on the weekend.

Try to be more clear on your question though, because I don't understand what you mean.

you can just pour the resin in if you want a solid piece or use a disposable brush if you want a "hollow" piece.

BJB Enterprises has a full line of resins and tints that get mixed with them. For an 89 you'll want black tint and Medium Chrome yellow (i think that's what I use). Here's their site http://www.bjbenterprises.com/
The tints are expensive but worth it.

Re: question? on mold paiting


There have been different approaches. Some pour the entire thing in Black then pour the yellow into it. Some make it 2 pieces, Pour the Black then make a yellow insert that fits perfectly into the emblem, some pour a black bat and a black ring them make a backplate and glue the ring and bat to it. What I do is pour the plack bat and ring, leave it in the mold then pour the yellow back plate after the black hardens. Then I paint the outside edge of the yellow with a model paint pen. This way is tricky because if you overpour the black part you wind up with scrap. OY. Good luck Bro.
