Started this kit over a year ago. These were icons as I grew up playing Gran Turismo. As I got to laying down the clear, I must have left the door open or put it in the wrong spot or something......but dust got all over it. I thought it was a write-off as the kit is discontinued and I couldnt even order another set of decals from the local Tamiya distributor and attempt it one more time. 

 

Had more time on hand at home in the last month or two (obviously) so I decided to tackle the painstaking process of sanding down the ruined clear. This was tricky; I had to sand as deep as possible without sanding off the decals. I did burn through the paint in some spots. Its not perfect but I can consider this kit "salvaged".
