Not much is done, I striped the chrome tree, and glued the front and rear bumpers on

Went to get the the paint to use on the chassis, but the paint store I went to had to order it, so as soon as I get it, I can start.

Good point, I really dont want to be called Jr. for many reason's :lol:

So I had a duh moment, I painted the chassis the wrong color, the kodak cars had black chassis not gray, so instead of painting over a perfectly good gray painted chassis, I switching chassis with a lumina kit out of the stash so I can paint this one black

Started decaling the body then I remembered I need to paint the inside black , so I am not sure how I am going to go about getting it painting, I guess I could brush paint it, or clear coat the body then mask it off and spray paint it'

Looking good. If it was me I would use a 1/2" brush and brush paint the inside, you can barely see in there anyway and flat black goes on pretty easily. I've learned over the years to paint the interior of the body first thing before I do any outside prep. It's easily touched up after the bodywork and paint is done.

Bruce, thats what I did, used a brush, now the funny thing, I did paint the inside of the body first, the wrong color just like I did with the chassis
