Seriously?
It looks like you used toe-nail clippers to cut out the body.

Apart from the terrible trimming, you have overspray all over the left window. Paint is okay, but you ruined it by not taking care of the other details (trimming & overspray) when presenting the body.[sm=punching.gif]

Seems like you cut the body with a rusty old Butter knife

Cool paint.

Needs: White Xray stickers, black wheels and wing, mask those darn windows next time (it deosn't have to be perfect, just windows), dremel tool with a sanding drum and small sanding stone.

I watched a video on how to cut out bodies awhile back...guy used a exacto knife and just scored the body along the lines to be cut....used some scissors and cut to the line...from there he just peeled the scrap right away from the body...tried it on a onroad body and it worked pretty good...the last buggy body I tried it on it didnt work as well...
