A little update
Yesterday I prepared all the parts I wanted to paint semi gloss black, and glued them all to the painting stand.
Today I got the Tamiya TS-29 paint I wanted to use and painted all the parts at once.
The engine was painted silver yesterday, as it's the perfect base for red.
My next step now is to paint the rest of the floor pan red oxide primer, and do the Coral Sand overspray.
Probably I will prepare the interior parts to be painted the base gray color at the same time, so I only will have deal with the airbrush and compressor one time this evening.
The frame was assembled as far as possible before being painted. This saves a lot of touch ups later, and makes all more "factory built" like.
The wheel backs were also painted semi gloss black. At the factory, at first all wheels were black, and only the outer faces were painted to match the body color, and even this was optional on the very basic Custom Tudor.
The floor pan will be painted red oxide primer. The front inner fenders will be masked to remain painted black. The front splash pan will be painted argent.
