Beautifully done! The color really works well. 

Thanks Chang, I'm mostly satisfied with this one though there is always room for improvement.

Thanks Chris I do prefer the showroom look even if it's not completely accurate.

Cool Rivi.  I really dig the body color.

Thanks Hector, I have about a half of a can left so probably one more model in this color.

Great looking paint and trim. The lighter color looks perfect on this style build. I like the detailing of the parking lights in the grill area as well.

Thanks David. I always prefer to detail the parking lights in that manner even if the color isn't factory correct.

Wow! Amazing build/paint/ finish. One of the best BMF applications I’ve seen on this forum, particularly the large areas on the lower portions of the body, not a wrinkle in sight. Especially that last photo where the lower areas of the body reflect the pebbles on the ground like a glass mirror! What’s your secret(s) to such perfect BMF?

Thanks John. The foil on the lower body while satisfactory isn't perfect in terms of being completely mirror like. While I wet sanded those areas smooth the foil itself seemed to have a slight orange peel after it was burnished.  So the only advice I can offer is to simply have the surface perfectly smooth. There are others here with more experience than myself who could offer you more suggestions.
