My color choice is "daytona sunset orange"

 

I got it mixed at my local Sherwin Williams store. The paint is "base color"

I always separate pieces to paint by color, in batches:

ORGANIZANDO_zpscd6e4978.jpg

 

I used PPG automotive primer for all the parts:

MUCHOPRIMER_zps5c8a12bd.jpg

 

And made some pre shading:

PRESOMBRADO_zpscf2ab874.jpg

 

This will be the interior color:

Engine and transmission also is getting its color:

More soon! Thanks for watching, any comment or critics are wellcome!

Front ligths are solid:

I love the extra effort you are putting into this project! Here's a few pictures of mine that I built box stock a few years back. I think you will like the color!

Thanks for your positive comments!!

 

I few "assorted" updates:

 

Painting the reflectors. I used Vallejo liquid masking tape:

CUARTOSTAPE_zps1bbf1426.jpg

 

And the result:

CUARTOSFINISH_zpsa9e49159.jpg

 

A bit late i decided to open the front grill:

 

From this:

PARRILLADUG_zpsf0818bb0.jpg

 

A little sanding in the back...to this:

PARRILLACOOL_zps37f8f46a.jpg

 

I'm never been fan of Revell's "bling bling" wheels:

RINESBLING_zps2d5f1dc0.jpg

 

A few minutes submerged in chlorine (not shure how it is called in english) to strip the chrome and a few coats of testors silver enamel:

RINESSILVER_zpsf961f1f6.jpg

 

Suspension with the classic corvette's.....hummmm.....also don't know that word.....=( you know what i mean:

Cigarrete metalic paper was used for the back ligths refelctors:

FAROSCAMEL_zps516d1383.jpg

 

An oleum red wash was used to paint the corvette letters:

CORVETTEOLEO_zps347c0dc5.jpg

 

The under chassis weathered with tamiya's weathering sets, and a bit of dry brushed silver oleum

Vallejo liquid masking tape also was used to mask the interior:

MASKINGINTERIOR_zps5af9de70.jpg

 

The basic colors applied:

INTERIORBASICO_zpsd1c9ca32.jpg

 

And starting with detail painted. I sprayed a coat of Ts-13 Tamiya clear with the airbrush to protect the acrylic paint because i'm thinking in making some light-shadow effects with oleum paints:

More soon!
