Remember the box in one of the above photos? Well, I decided to turn it into a safe.
I also painted a few things. Not done with them but I have a base coat down. The engine is Alclad steel. I will use the hairspray technique to make the coming colour chipped so the steel will show through. Really, the heads shouldn't have any other colour as they are aftermarket and would likely be steel/mag. etc.. I also will use the same treatment on the cooler which I used aluminum Alclad instead of steel.
I painted the chassis with Modelflex Weathered Black. I didn't paint it brown or rusty because I didn't want this chassis to be overly rusty. But it will be rusty. This is just a base.
