Thanks! But... Well, looks can be deceiving. The same issue that manifested itself with the chassis (mold release permeated resin rejecting paint) reared its ugly head on the body too. After the decals were applied. I had to repair and blend what little I had of the custom mixed color (around the decals no less). The clear is hopefully serving as a sealer and trap to hold the paint on now. Oh the joys of these old cottage industry kits...

I'm with you on that process Jacen. I guess I didn't post it here, but the oven cleaner trick worked on the chassis (after a soapy bath) so I also used it on the other parts. I think that since I let the body bake in the sun it may have allowed the mold release to leach out whereas the chassis was not "baked". So far it appears the clear is working as sealing agent.

Interesting car. Very nice build thus far. Any history on the 1:1?
