Thanks, while it might not look it the body is actually painted white. I will get a better pic soon. In the first pic the body is unpainted but the flash makes it look a bit bright...

Here is a better pic before paint:

Its poor quality but its the only other pic i have where the flash doesn't make it look really bright.

 

Here it is now:

I gave it a light polish to shine it up a bit:

The white on the rear tyres is from superglue... the exhaust is leftover from Revells 70 Challenger it fits almost perfect just need to modify it a little to match up to the motor...

 

let me know what you think...

Thanks slusher.

 

Paint on the hood went all funky after it had fully dried so it will need a redo... again.... 

 

This should be completed this weekend, basicly i just have to repaint the hood, modify and paint exhaust and find a front bumper..
