seriously the grainy effect of the rust seems rougher on pics then irl .. irl it looks much smoother
used the mercedes headlights from the kit , painted them chrome and weathered them
hand painted white walls , still wet here need more work after drying
washed the deep part of the rims with black
added a red edge , outer edge is chrome .. need more wathering after drying
made the window frame rusted and placed it safari style
just have to make the best of this kit now after the set back

thnx guys and well when all fails turn to rust ..
that was actually my plan in the beginning but i ended up making it gloss ..
and well i think the car just didnt agree ...
today all the layers where dry and more matte , now i can see where i need to tone down the rust structure and maybe think about some slight colors ....
the wheels will be redone looked terrible

placed the headlight lenses and in the seem flowed some brown thin paint , the lenses themself got a mist of some yellow acrylic , now thats rubbed off and it just tones down the lenses but doenst look yellow
cut a side window so its smaller and placed it rolled down a bit
used one of the kit decals to see how a logo would look , actually looked nice buts its already off the car
then modified some steelies ...not sure what color to paint them
went for 4 of the same tyres and painted white walls on the other 2

starting to come together ...
placed the wheels , not done yet and added a goodguys festival decal on the back door
maybe a idea for a wooden roof rack ?
chrome hubcaps and added doorhandles
cut 2 lenses to size to put on the fake looking casted taillights
maybe this is also an option for a roofrack , weathered chrome
in the garage here you see the tome is way lighter , it just depends how the light hits the rust
then sat in the car to soak up the garage ambiance
and then drove it on the lift to fiddle with the suspension set up a bit
