The sun finally came out this afternoon, the temperature was in the mid 50's and I got the body painted Testors flat white. The bottom sides of the body or rockers are still clear:

The flat white is backed up with Testors chrome silver:

Can't wait to get the blue on the rockers......

Nice sunny afternoon today James and I painted the blue rockers and the flat black detailing:

I still need to do a little touchup here and there on the flat black with my smallest "shaky" paint brush.

Thanks Mark. I wanted a project that I could get more involved with building a cool chassis.

Thanks Dave, I enjoy seeing if I can make an early Pro car with a low and wide handling body look more like the real race car.

Gorgeous

A motor is only as fast as the chassis it's in.
