alright, thanks.
and I know it may not help much being that i have a toyota, but I have the black stripe like that along the bottom of the Mistress, it's factory judging from other pics i've seen.

Hopefully I get a chance to build this up this summer. Not sure how much scratchbuilding I want to get into, but its going to take a lot of mods to make it look good. I need to find some wheels that will look good for 1/20th scale.

alright, i can call this one done. although the 510 was first started now over 10 years ago, it has given be a bunch of headaches. so this is why the 280ZX came into play while working on the dime.

SHAKOTAN 280ZX
kit: USAIRFIX curbside, motorized chassis hell
mods: just about everything. bucket seats, rear strut bar, harness bar, flocking, aoshima SSR MKII wheels, resin front mount intercooler(modded as well) lots of work to get it this way.

I'd say he tinted Future polish with food colouring and used it in lieu of pre-made transparent coloured paint.
