We all have done mistakes, we learn and we get better and better.

Stripe the paint off before its too late to do it and try to repaint the body. First use a good primer and then let the paint fly, but first of all be sure that the wheather is hot enough.

No name on tires? Does that mean that "GT RADIAL" ain´t there anymore? Thank God.......

Just strip the paint off purple power works great. Then clean with warm soap and water let it air dry and quick wipe down with Alcohol.  Then primer let it dry and them apply  your color.  Airbrushing takes some practice.  I was hesitate to use mine  now I shoot everything with it and I'm loving the results.
