thnx guys

and the bare metal look is explained a xxx amount of posts back

its actually silver aluminium zink spray and in fact there is really a layer of aluminium on the car ..
spray the parts and it will look metallic grey , sand i long enough with fine paper and you will find aluminium stuck on your sandaper :) and the body starts to look more and more like bare metal ...

did the spark plug wires , made out of thin brass wire from old chanpaign bottles fitted them , bended them into shape and painted them red while fitted on the engine
where they go in the engine i still need to pains some black (like the round holes that are now red)

also did some fith on the door from the exhausts

the udercarridge was a problem i could not sand there to get the same effect like on the body it was still clean an silver.
so i washed it and made it look filthy ....
didnt want any rust on the car so i kept it like this

Have you tryed using the plastic that things come packaged in? It is a thin thermal plastic that will bend with heat. You just have to be carefull because not much heat is needed before it goes bonkers.... B)
