Wow. 2 weeks seems fast for shipping from Japan. Did you spend big $$ on shipping? My average wait time here in Canada is 3 weeks from Japan, 3-6 from USA. Cross border shipping is always a PITA!

For the wheels, it was $7 for the shipping, it say 8-16 days for it to arrive , I am not susprized that it takes an extra week to make it to Canada

Since I have some time, I started to wetsand and polish the body, the bonnet roof and deck lid have been done so far, pics soon

Thats going to happen with all polishing and rubbing compounds, I took my stripping tooth brush , and after I cleaned it off, I brushed out the panel lines under running water

At a local hobby shop near me, where i got my pre-wired distributor. They had a lot of the tamiya jar paints and things like that and other supplies for scale projects. If you have a local-type shop near you they may carry it or similar.
