Hey Benny you have a digital micrometer or a dial Micrometer?If so measure the doors /hood /blah/blah all openings,now take measures of doors /hood trunk.take a piece of flat styrene(from the kit)and measure the thickness, now primer, and paint,clear and measure the thickness you will have an answer superbike-shaun


I don't have one of those. I plan to use etch primer and tamiya gloss aluminium. I'm going to give the perimeter of the doors a very light going over. Cheers.

The doors fit really well. I wonder if I should lightly sand the perimeter of the doors to allow for paint? What do you guys reckon?

I will have to get another DM800 mad paystar mixer just for this....

Hopefully they just re release it. Obviously have the parts trees for it to happen.

Looking great so far-- nice job on the space frame. Have you done any test fitting on mounting the doors? Bad fit is the downfall of virtually every other Gullwing kit.


I haven't touched the doors yet. Will get to that later today.

I'm not talking about the Paystar suspension. The DM 800 walking beam for the mixer is on the mixer parts trees. This is the tree with the DM mixer walking beam parts. Look at the bottom of this picture.... This is from the Paystar re-issue in 2001

Cheers for that. I stand corrected and feel really silly as I sold mine. Lol
