All the glasswork is done (thank you to those that offered help). Base..sanded..sanded again...I am very happy with the finished product. Stoked with what I have learned from you all. Hardware will be mounted in the next couple days and I will have her out by Sunday. Get ready for your first speed challenge...granted I stay clear of the rocks this time . Rattle can paint job.

After glass work was done, I primed/sanded/primed/sanded. Laid down light and dark highlites with gloss white and metallic black, sanded, then hit her with a thin layer of ruby red, let her dry two days, wet sanded, then applied another coat of ruby red and hung her to dry for another 3 days before sanding again and laying the final coat. The paint is Testors enamel. I did not want to clear due to the possible lack of luster. As long as I don't let her sit in nitro she should be ok.

HJ, paint is finished, kinda set it aside to work on a TC31. Putting MVD back together tonight, will post pics. As far as posting pics, I have used Photobucket for a long time. Sign up for a photobucket account @ You must be logged in to see this link. then you can upload pics and vids there. As wurster said, once you upload a vid or picture you are given options on how you want to post. Most Phpbb forums (like this one) accept the "IMG" code to post, meaning you just select the picture you want, highlight and copy the "IMG" link below the picture, then past it in your topic in the forums. PHPBB code is much simpler than html, and very user friendly, don't want to give the admin here a headache or I would post some cool codes :) here is a good link for PB tutorial... You must be logged in to see this link.
