Headlights are on the car now.

Also taped off and hand painted some of the interior accents like the seats and dash and the interior hub.

For the blue its Krylon blue I taped and painted for the blue then hand brushed the black to touch up or add black.

Interior is all finished except for the steering wheel.
I will probably flock parts of the interior after I glue seats in.

Also all of the black is again Tamiya semi gloss black.

I also have painted the door panels with krylon blue, and will be touching it up with tamiya semi gloss black to match the rest of the interior.

I also washed everything and primed it with tamiya white primer.

Thanks Bryan, the doors are painted in the same accent as the rest of the interior.

I have not yet glued the backing of the seats or anything in the interior.
I was gonna add a few different paint touch ups like white for the gauges and white and red for the nos buttons.


Here's what i was basing it off off. Although I figured id give this kit its own custom style.

Thanks guys unfortunetely the car is basicall completed now just gotta put the last two wheels on. And prop the hood.

I use my phone for pictures and since it can't detect my sd card it won't lemme take pics. I will try later tonight to get some photos and explain the last steps I did and how I painted it and what not.

Alrighty guys sorry for the long wait. But the eclipse is all done.

Engine accents were painted with model master french blue, tamiya aluminum and testors metallic silver for the chrome spots.
Rims were stripped of chrome partially and painted with tamiya aluminum.

I also put mesh from a tiny speaker cover and painted it with tamiya semi gloss black,

If there's any questions further doing of the build feel free to ask.

without further words I would say this build thread is complete

Enjoy
