      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

You're welcome! I have the same kit, and the Hobby Design PE set also. I'm going to pick up the mask set to make it complete.

Haven't been able to do much to the fairlady lately. Been doing a whole lot of piecing things together and brain storming. Did upload some pics to my Flickr account tho. I'l post the link shortly. I also have some other albums of builds I've made.

thanks! Wish I had more hours in the day. Between working in a machine shop, running the daily errands, home life, and a lot of r&d on the flavor of the week...i need like 72 second minutes vs the real life 60. I think I'll be happier to post pics on Flickr vs worry about how much space I have left on here. Going to attack it some more on sat. More pics when I can!

Think I'm scrapping the paint idea I had earlier. I was going to do a pearl blue color with a offset double stop light red metallic stripe up and over. The inner strip was to be smaller than the outter.

Now I think I'm going to go irredescent green/blue with smoked brass wheels with either off white/cream and black interior or black and tan. If I go with the green color without the irredescent I'll prob go blk/tan.... If I throw the color shift clear coat on I'll probably go with offwht/blk interior. Let me know you guys think. 

The color shift clear is on the right. The non colored clear coated is on the left. I'll post more on flickr.

Those wheels look like SSR's. Wheels like that always look good in bronze, but I'd like to suggest making them a real dark bronze. Is that what you mean by smoked? Many times the average bronze ends up looking like gold on a dark colored car. Here's a TE37 pic, maybe darker than this?

so if I do the "colorshift" it'll still be green but it'll have blue overtones. Did you see the '91 trans am I just did Jer? But anyways I do like green too, but it' got to be the right green. I do love a good blue tho. But I feel like i paint a lot of blue cars.

they do look similar to these, tho mine are 5 star mags. I think mine are enkei. Tho I maybe wrong. And I meant "smoked" in the sense of using transparent black over brass/blk met mix. I originally painted... I'll just show ya... keep in mind it'll be cleaner than this.... but you'll get the idea. Black from one angle but the regular color straight on..... I feel like i should call this thing the illusionist. Lol
