The day before yesterday I received 84 pcs of Beetle Cups from Rayz-HWC to be painted. He has mercifully stripped the paint for me. Thanks bro!





And then earlier yesterday I proceeded with building a paint stand for 21. Usually my paint stand can only sit one and spray one at a time.



That will not do, so I made a new one. With this one I can spray paint 21 pcs of Beetle Cups all at once!




There! 21 beetle cups ready to be given a new shade of colour. rabbit


More updates later, hang on to your seats ladies and gentlemen!

Elgee is truly an asset to the community. Smile cheers.


thanks! but im only doing a small part, compared to Rayz-HWC or what the rest have done to get us to this point. There are a lot of others, including the mods and founders who are even bigger assets, just maybe they do not have a cool WIP thread like this one. rabbit

Rayz>>>do u wash da plain 'bodies' b4 pass them 2 elgee?
coz IMO if got oil/dirt on it b4 da paint job, it might cause defect.

I tried my best to brush out all I could of the paint...you know la between those molding lines and etc..under the body near the rivits...man those snooks and corners Sad...elgee surely wiped it with a cloth before started to paint the primer...but after primer dy now best careful cause while drying dust may blow into the paint and get stuck....


elgee>>>izit mean everything will b done b4 18th???

he prepared them well, he even sanded them each.

no la...no sanding, just lots of force while brishing out all those 'flushes' from the trims, snooks and corners...but overall I think Mattel did quite well on the zamac Very Happy...I was strip painting some older cars - the paint was so bad and the body ltr was so unpolished feel...sigh but nvmd after dipping few more times and sanding after it should be ready Smile


the paints will be done by today. ill upload photos later, doing it as i type. Smile
