last night:

applied the 4th coat of future (1st over decals)

built the taillights after chroming the bases

made the rubber gasket that seals against the hood for the rad outlet

chromed the wiper arm, number marker lights

And found perfect orange beads to represent the "blinker" lights in the front housing.

- While they are provided in the kit as clear resin, there was no way I was going to attempt to chrome and paint them...

 

Then stoopid struck :(

"future is dry, lets brush on another coat"

:doh:  :fight:  :mental:

Well, thank god the stuff is self leveling as all the brush marks I left in it last night are all gone this morning.  :yahoo:

I'm curious why you're brushing it vs spraying it, Shawn.

I was going to procrastinate tonight, but decided to wait.

I know I can get a smooth layer by brushing.

If I AB it Im afraid of runs and pebbly finish.

I've run into a few research road blocks during this build, if it were a replica or kit car it'd be easy but since Im trying to keep it accurate not so much.

I found a great website where an individual hand crafts accurate Cobra's and he's been a great help.
