My daughter voted for metalic blue for the body while I want some orange and yellow. To achive all the colours we want to use, I decided to go with hot rod style; front flame with orange and yellow while the rest of the body will be covered with metalic blue. The seats will be coverd with dark blue, purple or black.

Quick prime and front paint

A quick spray with plastic prime and paint the front with “signal orange” with slightly overlay of transperant yellow. The metalic blue on right rear is a quick test to see how the colour will match with orange.
