      This one fine tutorial, Tim!!!!! What craftsmanship, you certainly can tell that you have been at this for a while. I was tired at the end of the tutorial and I didn't do any of the work! You can tell that you love your work and you are willing to share your knowledge with the rest of us. Thanks for sharing this with us.

          So did you mask the windows on the outside?

          I didn't see you mention masking the outside of the windows. Does that mean you clearcoated over the clear sections of the body?

          Regards,

          Steve C.

            Re: So did you mask the windows on the outside?

            Hi There,
            Wow... been a long time. Thought this thread was archived...:rollin

            Thank you everyone for your comments!

            Hi Steve,
            Yes, the clear finish coats are applied over the entire outer shell. However, on the interior of the shell, the windsreens are masked to prevent overspray from clouding the windscreens. Only after all the work is done are the masks removed. Hope this helps "clear up" the mystery.

            Kind Regards,

            Tim Johnson

              I hadn't seen this before but it's really great. And the hoodpins are a fantastic detail.

              This is a great tutorial that shows all the steps well. It's very informative.

                Good Grief, this thread's still here?

                It's flattering, but somebody should archive this...

                  Re: Archived Article Tim

                  I did archive it in the FAQ Froum but found no sign of after the big EZboard crash I will try to archive it again. But it has been getting a lot of views right where it is and seems complete here yet. So I left it alone right here thanks again.

                  I believe I still have a copy here on my zip disk library here. Wish I had a lot of the others stuff also after EZboard's screw up with no backups as they claimed to have.

                    Re: Archived Article Tim

                    Hey Larry!
                    Good the hear from you! Hope you're doing well.

                    I'm glad folks are still looking through it... and maybe learning something for themselves.

                    However, on archiving... if you would like to keep the article, you might want to keep copies of the photo's as I'm planning to do some "housekeeping" on the website soon, and these photo's (and links) are likely to disappear.

                    Thanks!

                    Tim

                      I believe I did get the photo copies but before I say yes, I will have too look it up first, or take them from here again for sure, to have them on hand and check with Alan as to where we could store them for sure. As I am running out of room on my ISP also to store for viewing here. As it will get pruned also soon.

                      Thanks for letting me know Tim.

                            Excelent read...

                            Very interesting and educating Thread: it's a pity that it seems that not only SlideRule but others who have posted on this Thread aren't in SCI anymore - they appear as "guests".

                            The reason I'm diggin' this up now is very simple: I just found it today! And it looks to me that lexan bodies can be made into highly detailed cars. I had never seen such a complete tutorial on preparing and painting a lexan body - I myself have done some pretty detailed paintings on lexan bodies in the past, but I have never gone through the trouble of attaching parts to it (hoodpins, rearview mirrors, etc.).

                            This is truly an inspiring Thread! My thanx go to SlideRule, even though he probably will never read this, and to those who so wisely put it on the "Sticky Threads" area: excelent read!

                            Cheers!
