    I dont blame you on the bmf..it will drive you nuts sometimes..to me bmf can be a blessing and can be a curse..its caused me to mess up a couple of nice paint jobs with my xacto

    Well here are a couple more pics of the progress..this project is going way too slow..too many life distractions going on..Im only getting about 1-2 days per week if even that to work on it and its causing me to get impatient...I made a couple of goofs on the paint and what makes it worse is they're on both sides of the car..just my luck they both could'nt be on the same side..now I gotta back track to repair it..but hey thats all part of the hobby I guess...

    Okay guys hopefully you can help me here.. So I've never really wet sanded and technically polished out a paint job before..I have tried but it seemed all I did was scratch up an already shiny finish. I've always had to settle for a mostly shiny finish but with dust and speck flaws in them..I feel like when I put sand paper to paint its doing more damage than good and I have tried using very fine grit paper..so with that said can anyone give me a sorta step by step instruction or at least point me in the direction of where I can get more information possably a youtube video or something...this paint job came out pretty will aside from the over spray. Its been more than 2 weeks since painting it so Im pretty sure it cured well enough. It does have some dust specks and what looks like a small hair on one side..Thanks so much in advance for any replies....

    Hello Guys... Well here's my next project. I picked up this kit up at a local model expo here in Buena Park. So Cal for $10..Not too bad I was able to talk the price down from $I8.. I want to take it to the mild custom style i'll probably go with a stock two tone paint job with all the stock chrome pieces and interior. I did have to cut slots in the wheel wells to get the wide tires to fit at the lowered stance I want..Wish me luck.....

    Okay..well here it is..I've had this kit stored away in my garage for probably more than 20 years and I guess time, heat, and cold took its toll here because nothing went together smoothly on this one. I had fiment issues off the bat with the front and rear bumpers as you can see in the pics the front end went together horribly no matter what I tried..talk about frustration...the rear not so much the clear parts were all warped..The paint I used wicked colors pearl red which sprayed on quite nicely I've used it before no problems.. but then I used testors one coat wet look clear lacquer."big mistake" I tried using a couple light easy coats then finished with a heavy coat and it orange peeled and had a very rough finish that was the first time and last time I'm using that..I usually use Tamiya clear coat with beautiful results so lesson learned..I guess I got so frustrated and lost patience on this one I just sloppily threw it together...anyway I thought throw a pic of my latest builds to make myself feel a little better..sorry for venting..and I hope there are some redeeming qualities in this one...thanks
