Got some work done in the past 2 days. painted the chassis, engine, firewall, wheels(supposed to be gunmetal silver) and axle. forgot a picture of the supercharger but its all black to give you an idea. For some reason the transmission didn't wanna play nice.Posted Image

rustoleum is horrible paint! if im using rattle cans i always use krylon, it dries fast, sands an polishes easy and i rarely have a problem with it.....rustoleum takes too long to dry....... you can fix it tho, we have confidence in ya!

use castrol super clean degreaser..........wal mart like 9 bucks a gallon. it works great, and will strip almost anything, and wont hurt the plastic.

Posted ImagePosted Imagewell bad news for me, the rustoleum melted scars into the body. and days of removing the paint left the body weak and handling it cracked the roof. So i said scrap the body. if you have a body and willing to give it to me ive learned my lesson about rustoleum its getting testors. My birthday is the 18th (4 days from now) so think of it as a birthday present. I know thats called begging butthis body is to badly hurt for me to fix it.

I think it'd be cool.
