      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    The good news is at least you are painting a solid color. Youd have to stripe all of the paint off if you were going with metallic.

    It's a great car. There's a company that puts Corvette motors in the new Miatas for 50k. Might make an interesting project with the new Tamiya model and a revell corvette motor.

    Alright guys not a whole lot of progress since my last post but I did get a few things done. Side markers and turn signals have been attached. ZoomOn provides metal transfers for these which can be colored with a marker. Still debating on whether to keep them over the decals or not. I am still painting the window glass. It's almost finished but certain parts are jagged and need to be retouched. I accidentally stepped on the hood and had to repaint it with a spare I had from a doner kit. Here are some mock up pics. Side mirrors are painted but need to touching up before installation. I also started adding metal transfer decals.

    Nice. What color is that?

    Question for you guys. Have any of you clear coated clear plastic with lacquer clear? I know that's probably taboo but will it craze the plastic? I'm trying to keep the headlights crystal clear. I used future but it's easy to fog it up again with handling.

    Hard to say honestly. Perhaps you didn't put enough flocking material?
    For the record I use spray adhesive from auto zone and it works great. Any touchup areas after that I use the white glue method.

    Thanks guys. It's close to being finished but I just want to make sure it all looks clean. The painting the window glass is going to be hardest part from here on out. All of the available window masks online are very poor.  It's one thing I haven't mastered yet. I may ask someone on here to paint it for me haha.

    Today was a beautiful day and wanted to get some better daylight mock up shots for you guys. Finished the window rubbers. Next will be badging

    Looking nice. Are you painting this silver?

    Still need to get the spoiler painted and finish the body trim and window glass. But she is coming together. The engine compartment is almost done but properly detail painting the turbos is frustrating at the moment. trying my best to do a clean job.

    Without further ado I finally have a rolling chassis. I decided to keep this car looking very clean and stock. I stripped the chrome off the wheels and sprayed them model master aluminum. Then I sanded the tread off of the tires with 320 grit and then I actually used real wetlook automotive tire shine on the walls.
    I debated sending off the wheels to chrome tech but I ultimately thought the aluminum look would give a better in scale effect. I have another set of wheels I may try for that down the road.

    Getting closer to a rolling chassis. Brakes painted model master aluminum plate, buffed, and I did not seal them to keep them as shiny as possible. The calipers are painted Vallejo black. Decals needed a lot of Microsol to conform.

    I'd super glue, sand and putty over the break. It would be an eye sore to me but it should hold up after that.

    Another small update for today. Started making progress on the headlights. Painted Vallejo air black. Then I installed the zoom on model headlight upgrade. They include 3 sets if parts and 2 metal transfer rings to replicate the supra headlights more accurately. 
    Of the few faults this model has, the headlights are the most glaring one. Probably due to the technology of kit making at the time. But ZoomOn did a great job with these.
