its going slowly but surely. im taking my sweet ass time with this. i wanna do it nice. not like the shit i did when i was kid - had it slapped together in a day LOL.

ran into a few problems here & there :uh: one minor problem that was "sorta" fixed yet will haunt me till the day i die.

i havent cleared the parts i painted yet, im waiting for them to dry completely.

i'll be maskin the roof off tomorrow & shooting the body. then im gonna start workin on the lil bitty parts. i have the engine partially put together aswell.



btw, the flake looks really big in the pic, its big but not like super big. if you think about it, the size of the car with the size of the flake would be almost like big flake on a real car :cheesy:

ok i rambled..sorry lol

:uh: that damn thing was from prepping it for paint. damn scuff pads! always come back to haunt me on spray bomb paintjobs!!! i have yet to clear it & maybe get rid of it with clear :dunno: thats just a baby problem. the life haunting one was the roof.

i had just taken it outside to spray the roof white, it was rainin out so i went into the garage to paint it. ran back in the house to find water drops on my freshly painted roof :tears: the paint was still soft, i wasnt gonna wait out in the humid garage for it to dry. i figured it wasnt raining that bad that i could quickly get in the house.

got in, got a small tipped paintbrush & popped the bubbles & went out on the backstep & sprayed it somemore to flow out the paint. helped, but not alot. it isnt that bad, its liveable... :angry:
