    First Painted Body (inspired by Steeeve)

    Well I decided to take a crack at painting my own body, I think for my first time I did ok. I did mess up on the windshield I wasnít thinking when applying the decal lol.
    But anyways this is my rally. Itís a Gen 1 built up as a street car.
    If you want to see pictures of the chasis let me know I will be happy to share.

    (Need to fix that rear camber omg)

    That looks fantastic! Really loving how it looks, the black and red looks great. Good wheel choice too!

    Itís a great bodyshell and works well with a single colour like this in my opinion.

    Top job!

    BTW I have found that the best way to apply the decals is with some water and washing up liquid mix on the body first. Sounds odd, but it gives you a chance to slide them around and get all the air out before they stick firmly.

    Thanks I appreciate it. Masking the inside was little tough, at least more than I had imagined. Thank you for you kind words.

    You are right, I donít know why I didnít think of that. Thatís how I apply decals on my real car haha. Must have been the fumes from all the painting making me dizzy.
