    "Rat-Packer"
    well, i picked this up the other day at wal-mart, and couldnt wait to get started on it. I highly reccomend this kit, because its very very easy to put together, theres not much to it, and its a good kit to customize to the sky cause its so basic. I have yet to put some paint on it, i had a nice "Roth-style" silver flake job on it, but when i tried to put the orange candy over top of it, the paint decided to not coperate with me, so i grabbed my cleaner that i always use to strip paint off cause it doesnt screw with the plastic, but i grabbed the wrong container by mistake and grabbed laquer thinnner, so after imersing the whole body in laquer thinner, i set it outside in the sun to flash dry after the color rinsed off. didnt really do alot of damage just kinda took away some of the badges that were on the body, so ill just shave em off. The only thing i didnt really like with this kit was that the tires were plastic and on the trees.










    im gunna try to do some wiring on this engine today, key word is try.







    thanks for looking and comments are always welcome!!!

    orange peel in paint is when the paint is not completley level, or has a textured finish to it, basically its not smooth looking to the eye. almost every factory car paintjob has orange peel cause they never wetsand cars at the factory. they call it orange peel cause it looks almost identical to the texture on the peel of an orange. hope this helps if not i can scan some of my text from my wyotech manuals.
