Cf experiment in full swing

Large pattern , with TS smoke on top after pulling masks

Image

Image

Image

Small pattern

Image

Some touch up needed

Image

No CF on these parts per pictures

Image

Image

Will use regular pattern masks on suspension

And mix of decals on rest

And now paint

First time using Splash paints, think I need more practice here

Image

It ate through the pink prinervfur some reason,

Image

And then the fish eyes, so I stopped to consider options

Image

Interestingly I sprayed other parts with TS49 to test and had no issues at all

So here I stand

Image

Will see

Great work so far, pretty frustrating about the Splash paints fish eyes, I feel your pain.

Great work on the carbon fiber! Sorry about the paint reaction on the primer. Body work can be extremely frustrating at times. Maybe just go with the TS instead?

I googled his build and as always beautiful finish

My only thing is the front plate that is a separate part i have blended in which matches my real pictures and his CF looks great however my references show the patterns in different areas on the real car

C/F decaling looks great. You say you overspray with smoke, do you also varnish, if so do you gloss or S/G? Good save on the bodywork, any idea what caused the original problems?
