    Can anyone direct me to a source for to purchase some really cool old retro-style bolted/riveted rusty, oily metal (airplane skin) artwork for a wrap? Aurora has some great rusty metal but it's not quite what my customer wants. :rolleyes: I'm trying to duplicate an old WWII era bomber skin, similar to the attached file.

    You're right! Maybe it's just oily and dirty. I'm sure even the aluminum got oily and greasy...

    Aluminium alloys over a steel frame. Some WWWII planes had steel screws.

    Yes, I'm sure I can. I was just trying to save some effort and not reinvent the wheel, if there is already a "wheel on the ground" out there!! Thanks!

    I guess what I'm actually trying to achieve is more of a grungy, oily look, like it's been through hell and back...

    I usually make my own in PS using rust and grunge brushes and rust textures I've "built". I've also taken hi-res photos of old train bridges etc... and use those.
