    I broke open one of my proto 2000 40' stock car kits yesterday and immediately noticed that the trucks needed some serious help...
    Here is what I did:
    I mixed flat black, flat gray, burnt sienna, and rust with some medium gray weathering powder.
    I painted the entire truck, sans primer (which is probably why I got the purplish effect at first.) which gave it a nice rusted texture.
    I then mixed flat black and a small amount of the weathering powder to dry brush grease details on the fire box, king pin, and the suspension.
    I then used the weathering powder by itself to add a road grime effect, then hit it with dull coat.
    I did not dilute any of the paint.
    I am fairly pleased with the result. The car that this will be mounted on has a built date over 20 years before my prototype year.

    Note: They don't look that purple in 3D.
