  3. started this project today. got this kit from my club for 2 bucks. it was a paint bomb lol but after the dip in purple power here is what i had started with.... got as far as opening up the doors and trunk and thinned down all the parts. also made the door jambs and trunk ledge. and a quick mock up. note: it just setting together still need to make the jamb on the door side and the hinges for the doors and trunk. also gonna atempt latches and strikers for the hood, doors and trunk. overall made some pretty decent progress today comments and ideas welcome! thanks for looking jason

  15. ron, good call on the paint! due to the shape of the door its a challenging task to open doors on theese but after some trial and error i finally got it right lol. as far as the red lines go, they are the kit decals. the easist way i found to work with them is to put one at a time in some warm water and let the decal seperate from the paper and come up to the surface of the water. after that i dunk the tire under the water center it up then bring it out and throw some microsol sealant on it. keeping it on the water the decal holds its shape rather than pushing it around a tire hope this helps thanks for the comment jason
