Looks really good man... The only thing I would say is that you should ditch the kit rims and get some pegasus 1109 spokes with whitewalls... Other than that it looks really good.

There is many way of doing the black wash. The way I do it i use flat black paint apply to the grill then with a rag or paper towl wipe off the extra paint. so all the low area will have the black paint.

I try to put as much is needed not on the heavy side. I wipe it as soon as i put it on. but i know some people can wipe it off the chrome after it dries.

you can search for tips in the hints and tips section.

I hope that helps.

Nice job! For grilles, etc., I use Citadel black wash. Citadel paints were designed for fantasy figures, but come in a lot of neat colors. The advantage is that they are totally water based acrylics. The black wash is essentially India Ink, which will work as well. The reason I use it is that most model acrylics or enamels are solvent based (isopropyl alcohol, etc.) and can remove the clear finish applied to the chrome parts. That can cause the chrome finish to dull over time. Sometimes I have to apply the wash a couple of times before all the recesses are covered, but one main advantage is that if you don't like the results, you can wash it off in water before it dries completely. Hope this helps.

Actually keep the rims & wrap 'em in a set of Pegasus 5.20 whitewall tires, otherwise your sixfoe is a beauty!
