RC Celica project finished



[b] Well I bought an RC Action Package Celica, some months ago.. and it was black with purple flames

Linked Image

Since it was just sitting around I decided to open it and give it a different color and started to prep it for painting..

Linked Image


took off the stickers and
I sanded it with 2000 grit sand paper and masked off the areas not to be painted with 3mm painters tape

Linked Image

Dilemma! eek I set it out in a metal pan in hopes to really bake the paint in the hot sun.. but it sure baked a hole on the side alright laughsilly magnifying the suns power right on the side

After several coats/days of drying inside its ready for a clear coat.. happywink
