    Spraying outside when it's damp after rain
    I'm currently working on two models. One body is ready for color and the other needs primer coat #2. It's been raining / snowing here for the last three days but it has finally stopped! I spray outside on my balcony with an airbrush and Tamiya paint / primer. My question is will the dampness in the air effect the way the paint and primer take? The temperature is currently 0.

    I'm starting this kit in a few days .. I'm also planning on opening the trunk and maybe the doors too. I've considered lowering the car but I've never tried it.. Any suggestions on lowering this kit? Any help would be appreciated !!

    Wiring led lights in 1/24 1/25 scale car
    I've recently got back into model building and I'm very curious how I would go about wiring led lights for headlights, tail lights and possibly an interior light . I've searched the web but can't find anything for 1/24 scale. I was thinking of using AAA batteries or maybe watch batteries if they're powerful enough and hiding them in the trunk.

    I also need a website or two that sells everything I would need as I do not have a hobby shop near by.

    Any thoughts and suggestions would be greatly appreciated !!
