I spray the body with primer then put it on drying oven...

Then scribe again the panel line

What type of primer did you use?

I use 2 part epoxy filler

It adhere quite well, it also fill the roungh sanding mark... surely save alot of time on sanding the plastic....

After it cure...  i can easily sand it to make a smooth surface....

I choose yellowish primer since i belive its the most natural base color before we go to whatever the color is... but metalics we always use black as the base...

But grey primer is also good for spotting uneven or unperfect surface....

This is just my opinion....

Looks great so far, good job !

Can I mention one little thing ? Not to criticize but if you look at the real engine above it has standard headers with heat shields to protect the HT leads. The 302 in the kit has aftermarket headers , it shows in the instructions to run the HT leads down behind the headers then under them . This would stop them melting  ! !

Just thought I'd mention it , looking forward to more progress on this !
