    The valve cover was a decal. I got it from a vendor on ebay. It took a lot of Micro set/sol to get it to lay down over all of the grooves/crevices.

    Hey Marcus, welcome to this great site. I'm pretty new to all of this as well, but it was recomended to me, to use elmers glue around the window areas. I use a toothpick to apply it to the edges of where I am trying to put the window. I believe Testors makes a glue specifically for window areas, but I have no experiance with it. Hope that helps you out a little bit.

  9. RoadRunner1083 added a post in a topic Another beginner question, painting details   

    The reason I ask, is for a kit like this. Where the fog lights and the Grill area are all molded together. I wasn't sure.

    Another beginner question, painting details
    I'm wondering how everyone does this. Do you paint the details, like the turn signal markers, tail lights (that don't come with clear pieces), fog lights, etc. over the clear cloat, or do you paint them before the clearcoat. I was thinking before the clearcoat, but then I was thinking parts like the flat black grill areas needed to be painted after, because they were flat black, so I am unsure?. Thanks!

    Ok, I thought I had finished this build and then realized there were no mirrors! Not sure how I missed spraying the side mirrors, but some how I did. Anyway here it is almost completed. I had a rough time with the first decal, but it was my fault. Oh well, it is all about learning so this is my first (almost) finished glue kit. Thanks everyone for the help and suggestions along the way!









    And here is a quick video of my thoughts of the build

    Laid some paint this morning.I forgot I had this color. Used on some hot wheels that I repainted. Anyway, just letting it dry and gas out some then going to wetsand it and go over with another coat.





    Interior, it turned out ok, still trying to learn.
