Nice job on the piant! What do you use to mask off your stripes? Overall, it loks really good.
I usually use Tamiya masking tape, but for this one I actually used some Fine Line automotive "pinstriping" tape. It was very thin, not sure about the exact measurement. First time I've tried this type of scheme on a car. I usually stick to the safe, single color paint jobs.
Pretty happy with how it came out.
Very nice color combo
Its like the Chip Foose style
Yeah, Chip & our own JDM Fan inspired me to try this.

Black and silver classic color combo. perfect paint and detail. Excellent work....Slusher
It actually does look more like silver in the pics, doesn't it?
It's actually Tamiya Champagne Gold TS-75 out of the can....
I love it! Excellent work.
Thank you sir!

Nice model... but that sway bar on the rear axle connected like it is wouldn't be doing you a whole lot of good!
Probably true! I got the idea for the rear-end set-up from a Tim Boyd article in the "other" model car magazine. I didn't want to stress about the "correctness" of it, I just wanted to complete something & have fun while doing it.
Am I the only one who has more "in-progress" builds, than actual finished models, that languish due to obsessing over details? (the dreaded AMS syndrome! )
