Cool keep us updated remember when you peel off tape do it slow and at an angle so you dont rip off paint

what are you going to back the pink with white or silver

I take it the handle hood grill and box cover are gonna be silver

Another thing since you did not cut it first be careful cutting out around wheel wells you can very easily scratch the paint with scissors and that will really Piss you off[:@]

back, silver, ya, little "touches" lol, when she noticed the "gas cap" "ooh, I got to mask that out" and she spends like 5 mins cuttin out a mask for it, wow, talk about hard core on a first shell. lol, ya, for a first timer, I say it looks good[8D], kinda hard to see, but before we did the paint color you see, she sprayed some sliver in the air and wafted the shell through, thus creating what every girl likes, SPARKLES!!!!!!!!!! ya, looks neat, so, we are definately going to paint those items silver, i say one more coat on the lower stuff, so you can see it better, just a thought, do it in the mornin, let the paint dry a bit durrin the day, then peel off the masks, and put on the backing[8D], then cut out the body holes, er, is it a good idea to use a body remer, we got chasis punches here, can they work, just mark, and punch, good or bad idea?????[>:]

Ive always used a reamer But ive heard of people using drill bits and heating up a screwdriver and melting the body for the holes (i dont reccomend this at all ) it you dont have a reamer just use a drill bit I guess ive never really seen a chasis punch so i dont know how they work

ok, the chasis punch is like a punch, place the object to punch down, hit the punch with a hammer, BINGO hole[8D], ya, er, I dunno about getting the backin color on, kinda been busy lately, last time I saw it, she hadn't sprayed it more, have to say, for a newbe, she did a good job[8D]

ok the only prob i SEE is do you have to put something down behind were you want to punch like a piece of wood or metal or something cause if you do when you punch it you take a chance of scuffing up fresh paint if that doesnt make sense ill try to make a picture of what im talkin bout


Also from what Ive seen she has done a very good job

The DTX one works great and as for body scissors they really do help on the curved wheel wells they kinda follow the body lines I use the Venom scissors and love them

ok this is my first one. not quite as fancy as what you guys are doin. ok it's pretty basic and simple but it works for bashing around in the snow for me. i had to use some racing stickers to get it to look half decent. but i think it doesn't look to bad. but i could be wrong.
