I added the Air Induction for the GTX even though I don't have the proper hood for it.  The dash has been detailed and is ready for the rest of the interior.  I started foiling the sides of the GTX.  So far I have the front clip completed.

More GTX to come...

I foiled the side moldings this afternoon.  I have to use Metal Foil Adhesive which is another step for me.  Maybe it is time I broke down and got some new foil.

More GTX to come...

I finally finished foiling the GTX.  I had to finish the foiling the drip rails and the side vent windows.  After I had done that, I painted the interior roof with Tamiya XF-1 Flat Black.

I went and clearcoated the GTX this afternoon and it went rather well until I got to the top of the roof and the trunk panel.  Looks like my Tamiya TS-13 Gloss Clear was a little too hot for the MCW Enamel paint.  Looks like I have some wet sanding to do later.

More GTX to come...

Thanks Jeremy!  I forgot to "mist" my clear on.  I also forgot that this was MCW Enamel not Lacquer like I thought it was.  It was rock hard and resisted sanding.

Yeah, I forgot to "mist" my lacquer clear on.  The thing is that this paint was rock hard and slightly resistant to sanding with coarse sandpaper.    Oh well, I'll sand it with my polishing pads and go from there.
