Once again, another body has been assembled, smoothed and made ready for paint. I just wish the weather would get a move on so I can get started.


An excellent fit all round. I'll be doing it Chrome Yellow with Pearl Clear.

Very nice! The body styling is so sleek - it will look ridiculously good with just about any colour/combo.

I put on two coats of Chrome Yellow and it sat down so flat and perfectly that I almost hesitated to put on the Pear Clear. I went ahead anyway and you can barely see the pearl unless in direct sun and it's added a tiny bit of texture to the finish. Anybody able to send me back in time? I mean, It's more than an acceptable finish but I actually achieved THE most flawless finish I had ever managed and I went and spoiled it a little.

I read your post and peered at the photo and still can't see the texture, it must be truly minimal. I suppose you could let it 'long cure' for a few weeks then go back and wet sand with some insane grit sheets - but really I don't see that there's a need. Beautiful!

I suppose I can thank the 800x600 resolution limit on this forum for hiding such things.

You can just about make out the pearl in the sun.

Looks fine Dave, you can polish out the clear pearl?

A coat of normal clear couldn't hurt if you think it's dulled down a tad.

Looks good Dave.

As per Shays comment. I usually lay down a few coats of clear Tamiya as a top coat. That stuff really polishes out soooo nice.

I've used smoke for the alloys. First time i've found a good use for the colour.

Awesome wheel color. What type/brand paint is that?

Thanks Mike. It's Tamiya rattle can TS-71 Smoke. I have used it for tinting glass in the past but it doesn't seem to lie very well. I put about three layers straight onto the alloys and it looks quite good.

Those wheels will contrast nicely with the pearled chrome yellow ! Nice choices !

The pearl on the yellow is subtle and beautiful and the wheels looks fantastic, love that 'smoke' colour.
