Default Parts.

Also the other parts came today that I needed to prep the body before painting.

For the body I was waiting the,

1. Exhaust
2. Window wipers
3. Shark fin aerial.

With these I can mark out and do the holes where needed, which with the body painted could of been a risk of making a mistake.

With the exhaust it looked too clean and crisp for a rally car, so I painted the inside of the tail pipe black to give it that run oil look.....

Exhaust as it came and after I painted it.....

Default Body prep & window wipers

With the window wipers, I marked out and did the holes where needed. I also marked and did the hole for the exhaust and shark fin in the roof.

With these now complete, I can start masking and painting the body....

Default Detail

Exactly Alan,

Detail is the main part of this. I have started the body and I have to say I have been putting the decals on now for almost 2 days and just have the passenger side to complete.

That will be the main part, then its down to my personal details and what I will adding.

If anyone is thinking of doing one of these here are some tips for you to gain a better finish. I must say I have painted many bodies from 1989 To today. All I had to do on this is 1 line each side the rear wings where is goes from the blue rear to white stripe. Then a decal matches and over laps to get a crisp line. So you don't need to be perfect as the decal makes the line as it will over lap the blue.

Well that's wrong, you need to be perfect as the blue comes through the white of the decal, not good. So you need to be bang on which is near impossible to do. So here is the tip.

I used white electrical tape under the white of the decal. This blocks the blue out to leave a perfect white join. Otherwise the blue shows through the white.

Rear Light decals. I was going to paint the lights in a clear orange and clear red but could only find plastic paint, then I thought maybe transparent orange and red. But in the end went with the rear light decals.

Tip, cut either horizontal at centre or cut vertical at the fold, so indicator. This means you will apply the light and indicator in 2 parts leaving a perfect flat light as thy crease trying to do in one.

I must say though, the quality of decals are fantastic, the fit of the decal and window edges are fantastic and the complete package is fantastic.

Im almost there with the decals, but I still have a lot to do so hopefully you will see the finished body by this Friday...…..

Default Shell Finished

So just to let you all know.

The body shell is now finished. Ive just got to fit the cockpit and then mount. Im awaiting magnetic body mounts as I didn't want to put holes in the body and have body posts sticking through.

I have changed the plan slightly with the intercooler. Ive studied some of the real life WRCs and they don't have a mesh across the intercooler. So I have left this off. The intercoolers are either BLACK or Plain ALLOY. So Ive left it ALLOY.

I have meshed the top grille and painted that black with a FORD logo. I have fine line detailed ALL the lines that I feel were required.

Doors
Bonnet
Front grille
Rear boot
Front wings
Front lights
Bonnet catches

I have fitted,

Exhaust
Window wipers
Shark fin
Wing mirrors
Rear wing

Pictures coming shortly...…….

Default Detail Lines and Exhaust.

Alan,

The detail lines are KYOSHO 0.4mm detail tape. Its mega thin. It actually looks wider than it is.

The exhaust is fitted by making the hole via a body reamer until its a tight fit. The hole actually holds the exhaust. There is a bracket to fit it and I was going to use double sided tape, but there's no need.....

Thank you for the kind words.

It has taken a while to complete, longer than I expected, but there is a lot of detail I have done as well...….

I will mount the driver and co-driver and take some pictures later. Then its just a matter of mounting it for the final picture.

I have had on order some magnetic body mounts so I don't have to put holes in the body for the body posts. They were ordered nearly 9 weeks ago and still waiting, but its the situation at present so hopefully they will be here soon.

When they turn up it will be mounted...……….
