It was a good day to build a slammer soup to nuts, paint, bare metal, window tint and wheels. This was a fun project.

I used Testors Black Lacquer polished out 20 minutes after I painting with the Treatment and then one pass of Tamiya clear blue for windows. Next Bare Metal Foil and the wheels were done with a fine black Sparpie, some Tamiya tints for side markers and you have a nice slammer. Also being retired helps.

The Tamiya clear blue does a pretty convincing job of simulating the Soft-Ray tinted glass.

Overall a very nice build. There's something to be said for curbside kits that assemble quickly.

I use a floor heater to accelerate the drying times, been using this method for years with great results. The kit is the 70 Buick Wildcat.

Not many pieces, but a lot of fun to build. I doing another slammer today, the 65 Rivera. I already painted it in Tamiya Maroon and is front of my heater. I'll post the finished car later today.

Thank everyone :rolleyes:

Is that a AMT kit? How far do you keep the body parts from the floor heater? They can be pretty intense. What setting do you use?
