Well , you are going to have to wait 2 weeks to see any updates , sorry
Two weeks!!, I am only going to be gone for 4 days
Alright time for a small update, starting with the R8
I am calling the interior done, I used Tamyia semi gloss black on the door panels and dash, and walmart flat black on the interior tub and seats, I did flock as well.
And the on to the Jag, I prime the body to help me find the mold lines, and there were a lot, here it is after sanding to remove them

Posted 30 June 2012 - 04:34 PM
Taking a break from packing, I did get both the Jag and R8 bodys painted, and here is how they look
That is it for now.

The windscreen is a piece that supports the delicate A pillars while the body is being painted , and nice paint on the jag and R8!
Are the a pillars that fragile that it needs support ?, that color really suits the lambo well, and the trim looks great, mask and spray?,

Where are you going for vacation?
Yes , the A pillars are extremely fragile. The trim was masked and sprayed , I may try sand / polish the over spray after I get back from vacation

I clear coated the R8, but its hard to tell, painted the wheels, and started getting the body finished, brakes and wheels backs installed
I am not sure if I want to keep the wheels the color they are, I used Matt aluminum, I was thinking of doing them in black

Thanks mate, it was a move, it sucked, I think trying to get everything unpacked, and settled is going to be harder then the move, still not done yet. I am still trying to get all the model stuff unpacked, and still have to find a place to set up the ole paint box
Looking good Jonathan , and welcome back . How'd the move go ?
I am going to try a different color for the wheels, my first plan was black wheels, so may go back to that.
