Everyones body's look so good, its really nice to see all the great talent thats out there. Thank you very much Greasysnowball for the comments! The orange Late Model body is on Ebay right now [link]http://stores.ebay.com/Dons-Custom-R-C-Bodys_W0QQsspagenameZMEQ3aFQ3aSTQQtZkm[/link] along with a few other body's. I am working on a hand painted Jeff Gordon Late Model body today. I will post pics of it, when I get it done. Here are some more pics of other body's I have done.

As promised here are some pics of my custom painted Jeff Gordon Late Model. I used NO decals on the body. I used liquid mask and hand painted every thing you see. Sry Greasy if I told you where I get my body's from, I would have to kill you. Military secret you know. LMOA J/K! Just look on ebay or do a search on-line. There are alot of places that have them.

Thanks Trashpop! To make the lighting effect I bought some really small brushes that you can just trash after you use them. But instead of bristles they have a tip like a Q-tip. But the cool thing is you don't have to worry about the lint that you might get from a real Q-tip. They come in mutiple sizes so you can use them for tons of different things. They also work really good on paint bleeds. I think you can find them at most hobby stores and art supply stores.

my latest works


my first time using this mystic color change paint i got from the body shop at my work and it turned out really great on my rc10. i dont know if i like jakal internal graffics tho they cracked on me during painting and not real easy to lay out think ill stick to my masking like on my new xx body

ps the pictures dont do the mystic paint justice

rc10 on the right uses mystic paint with jakal internal graffix and the xx is tamiya candy coat paint with parma web mask and tamiya fog black for the window tint

Yea, I spent about two weeks on it. I needed something extra special for a big race this weekend. But I made the graffiti on graffiticreator.net and traced it on the body. The bricks were a pain. I layed down super thin masking tape and had to cut it to make the bricks. I don't think I would do another one for all the money in the world.....well yes I would.
