Wow, that paint came out awesome, I don't think you could have picked a better color either.

I think you should try it. Hammer it home! I never liked how they didn't do the rear in carbon there is a kit to do it for the 07-9 cars like mine but it's expensive and Shelby didn't put it there so I won't touch it. Lol

Hey thanks Josh. As far as I was concerned, Kona blue was my only choice of colors.

I just might have to Fred. I am going to let the paint dry for another day or two before doing anything else with the body though. Gotta compound and wax next (oh can forget the satin black trim around windows too. Darn, still got plenty to do.)

You would think with this kit being popular Testors would have come out with the Kona blue paint. I too have the kit and wanted to paint it kona blue but did not want to spend over 100$ to get the automotive paint mixed and put into a spray can. I settled on the tamiya mica blue.

20.00 for a 12oz spray can of Kona Blue. You can get any color, any year, any make here, most cans are 20.00+ s/h. Good place if you don't airbrush your models.

Napa also does rattle can mixes. From what I understand you can get even "custom" colors in a rattle can.

Hey guys, got the first piece compounded and waxed.....the hood. Update, the stripe decals really did not want to work with me so darn it this car will not have them. I am unable to paint them now that I have put about 5 coats of carnauba wax on the hood. Really upset about that. :angry:

 

Anyways, here are some pics of the hood after wetsand, compound, and wax.

So today is a somewhat overcast day. Good for outdoor pictures because there is no glare.

 

Finished the polish and wax on the body early this morning.
