    While I was painting parts for other projects, I decided to get some paint on a few things for this car. Both the Lenco and the MW rear end are from TDR, shot with Alcad. I usually mix my own to get the color I'm after. The Lenco also has a few RB Motion bolts added. Lots more to do on it.

    The four link plates were custom machined by a good friend. He did a fantastic job, and I can't thank him enough! The end bells were ones I machined before for my Daytona. Once I got those all together, I soldered up the lower wheelie bar and added RB rod ends to it.

    I've also finally got the front strut towers on. Now I need to add the lower link mounts and my chassis will be pretty much done.

    Finally got a little time this week to get the chassis painted and cleared.

    I mixed a bunch of different dark gray metallics, and silvers together to make sure I had enough to cover the whole chassis. I went for a color a little lighter than I would normally use to try and get close to the color R2B2 powder coats their chassis with. Once the paint was dry, I gave it a good even coat of PPG 2 part clear. I need to go back and touch up the left door pad, then I can get to assembling some stuff on it.

    You can see the 3D decals still showed up under the paint and clear. I think they worked pretty good!
