Let's get some activity rollin' in this bitch!

So. At the hobby store one day, checkin out the rides there, and it clicks... wonder if they have a BMW E30 around here? They have a lot of HPI bodies so I'll take a shot in the dark and see what's up?

"hey counter guy? you got any E30's in this pile back there?"

"yeah we got one left"

"gimmie."

Cash is given, body is received and I get er home to paint up.

Days go by and well... I don't know what to do!

Bring up pictures of custom paintjobs on google.. looking... looking... looking... aw fuck this noise, I can come up with something. I know! a blend of a pinstripe to a checkered pattern. Sounds simple enough, why not?

I hate you now. you are such a little bitch to cut!

but all good now. It's working nicely.

:-o looking good. Are you going to put lights behind the N/P areas or just leaving them blank so they look like glass?

I've got light buckets with this shell, so I'll be painting those either chrome (depending on if I can get the chrome) or silver, then installing a set of LED's. yellow for the inner ones, white for the outer.

Update time!

the metallic and silver backing coat is on. It looks like it turned out pretty well, but until I pull off the protective sheet it's somewhat hard to tell.

Tomorrow will be the final black coat to detail and seal.

mm yeah.

thought i'd do the black coat today but I just went 'I'd rather play a video game'. Glad I did. Tomorrow is a new day, and if i'm not wiped from the day, i'll finish it and throw up new pictures.
