No problem, looks like the other side is just as nice keep it up. And Oscar that Rx7 is pretty awesome. That body style always looks mean with some flares and race trim

Sweet Mazda, Oscar.  

 

 

If you're like me, you'll have a piece that looks good, so you'll go with it, take a pic, and post it up. Then while looking at your post in the monitor, you'll see all kinds of bad in it. 017.gif That's what happened with the seat. I didn't like the sanding scuff marks on the front. So I prepped it better and shot the rear half in semi-black. Then I masked that off and shot the front in Tamiya dark grey acrylic.
Much happier now. eusa_dance.gif

Since the chassis is coming along nicely, it's time to resume work on the engine. The engine tin work was in this semi-transparent plastic, but I didn't like the look, so I sprayed it Tamiya AS-15 Tan. Also got the distributor superglued into place

The spark plug leads were on a rubber like sprue. I was hesitant about it at first because of the strange bends it had, but after bundling it up and getting it to the spark plugs, I'm OK with it.

WHOA! Yeah, I can imagine that decal sheet might be intense on that second one.. There was another one in an endurance race that was black with pirelli logos striped on it i think.. I'll try and find a pic. Maybe that'd be an option?

I don't know how difficult this would be, or if it's available as a separate sheet.
