I always separate pieces to paint by color, in batches:

I used PPG automotive primer for all the parts:

I love the extra effort you are putting into this project! Here's a few pictures of mine that I built box stock a few years back. I think you will like the color!

Thanks for your positive comments!!

I few "assorted" updates:

Painting the reflectors. I used Vallejo liquid masking tape:

CUARTOSTAPE_zps1bbf1426.jpg

And the result:

A bit late i decided to open the front grill:

From this:

PARRILLADUG_zpsf0818bb0.jpg

A little sanding in the back...to this:

PARRILLACOOL_zps37f8f46a.jpg

I'm never been fan of Revell's "bling bling" wheels:

RINESBLING_zps2d5f1dc0.jpg

A few minutes submerged in chlorine (not shure how it is called in english) to strip the chrome and a few coats of testors silver enamel:

RINESSILVER_zpsf961f1f6.jpg

Suspension with the classic corvette's.....hummmm.....also don't know that word.....=( you know what i mean:

Cigarrete metalic paper was used for the back ligths refelctors:

FAROSCAMEL_zps516d1383.jpg

An oleum red wash was used to paint the corvette letters:

CORVETTEOLEO_zps347c0dc5.jpg

The under chassis weathered with tamiya's weathering sets, and a bit of dry brushed silver oleum

Vallejo liquid masking tape also was used to mask the interior:

The basic colors applied:

INTERIORBASICO_zpsd1c9ca32.jpg

And starting with detail painted. I sprayed a coat of Ts-13 Tamiya clear with the airbrush to protect the acrylic paint because i'm thinking in making some light-shadow effects with oleum paints:

Hi,

Very impressive work on the C6 - I've got one of these in the loft, plus a zr1 that I assume is basically the same kit so I'll be watching this thread carefully! You got lots of general tips as well, so keep up the good work.

Cheers,

Jim

Amazing build. How do you paint the tiny detail like panel lines and "corvette" letters AFTER you've done the main colour??
