today- windows and paint

windows have been glued in using ordinary elmers school craft glue - this keeps them from hazing

all of my parts to be painted have been washed and are set out ready to paint, I will spray paint them carfully while leaving them on the sprues. I just pick out the parts i want to paint. this ahs taken many years of practice but  some how i get the color on the part i want w/o having to paint all of the other items the same color, i do this w/o tape. contrary to the instructions the engine should not be orange - this is a dodge thing , petty cars had petty blue engines so my engine is blue. my parts are painted based on what colors i have in my arsennal , not according to the instructions.
