The charger shells do look nice with offset wheels on the rear end and the ride height set higher on the back and lower on the front I've only seen two of those so far. But the escort mkII just looks amazing with the right paint job and smooth cut arches..ahhh I might have to just get one for the sake of having it there to put on while I'm not driving the car. Wow 300+, you had a serious collection going on there, but why just throw them All those poor shells

I was moving from Yorkshire to stoke and couldn't really bring them as we ended up moving 2 houses into one at time

The new diff came today , theres a huuuge difference the wheel moves with the pinion and spur simultaneously now instead of there being a delay. It came pre greased in a small bag, should I grease it up a bit more before I use it or will it be fine how it came?

I'll add a bit more just to make sure it's not going to loose any teeth through friction etc, is any type of grease ok or do I need a specific type? Not yet just waiting for the cup and grub for the rear right of the car and it will be good to go

Lool it's easily done, the only shop close by sells painted models and them war table set thingy things (have no idea if they are games or just models). They might do some kind of grease though, some of the painted models have mechanical moving parts, motorised doors, on tracks etc. I believe they do actually sell a few bits for rc vehicles...but "few" being the key word there lol

I'm going to get some more spray at some point on tuesday sand them down again and re-do them, theres a few areas that have bitty bits under the paint that I don't like but overall considering its the first thing I've sprayed in my life…..a decent result lol! I also cut out the front grill earlier I'm going to get some mesh tuesday too. The rear window is next to be cut out and meshed to keep temps down for when the *23T Motor is installed* <
Stupidly I used nail varnish remover (my partners) to remove the horridly painted headlights on the shell and it has left a grey looking area on the front of the shell that won't come off good thing this shell is going to be a basher.

*may also cut two holes in each headlight area EG: Oo oO << with a post cutting tool just…because really. I'll put it down to it being a experimental shell & a basher lol

As it's electric you don't really need to cut any windows out
but why not cut the door windows out/down to make it look like there open fully /slightly
it's the lexan/polycarbonate shell once it's painted it doesn't like being reprinted or having the paint removed
I haven't found anything to remove paint from it with out it damaging the shell
you could try paint the outside of the shell it will be a Matt finish
don't forget to mask the windows up before you paint
but then you could always clear coat (lacquer) it after
as it's going to be a basher the over all paint and finish won't really matter

Spraying:
If you want to practice spraying get a plastic bottle (a 5L I found works the best as it's wide and they have ridges in)
cut it in half and use one stroke at a time (left to right front to back top to bottom or the other way round lol)
when spraying always spray dark colours first
then when it's dry spray light colours
if you want to make patterns use masking tape to create your design then spray your dark colours after that's dry remove the tape then spray all with the light colour
always spray one very light coat at a time to avoid bleeding
the final result is obtained after 2 to 3 coats
wait approximately 5 mins before applying the next coat
never spray just one heavy coat
Hope that helps

Thanks dus, I watched a few vids on tube and sort of copied what they did, close to your advice but I only did 2 directions left to right I didn't go up down. I was considering buying a few cheap shells to mess about with paint wise and cutting. I saw a vid where a guy cut all the doors bonnet boot etc and put hinges and locks on them all so they was able to be opened and closed . Obviously it would be a show shell over anything else but it gives me practice cutting precisely for others .

Nope I'm going to give it until Friday and if I don't get anything in the post just ask for a refund. Other things have come in the post since n they have been ok. Something seems fishy. Postman/Sorting office or the seller....someone along the line isn't doing their job properly..
