I have assembled it. There are some places where the purple coat cracked St the edge of masking that I need to fix, a few purple blotches on the whitewalls, and some wiring testing to do. Also, the taillights are gluing and I haven’t applied red reflective tape.
It’s 20 better.
You don’t deserve this, but as William Munny said, “deserve ain’t got nothin’ to do with it”.
Another layer of purple Metalcast, and painted the underside. And on reviewing the wheels, it seems they have a suitable metallic finish for Metalcast...
Immediately prior to this, it had been painted silver. (Metalcast purple, metalcast base layer)
After masking and a brief application if filler, I reprimed so I can sand and apply a base coat either later or in the morning.
Went back and polished out all the plating from Saturday with steel wool and polishing compounds, then clear coated. Had to replate sections of the sides to remove blemishes, but that wasn’t too hard.
Juat got done using a Caswell “Plug &Plate” “CopyChrome” nickel alloy plating kit to make the grill and bumpers on the pedal car project more resilient and better looking.
Sensible RamblinRover: Hey, pedal car kits are quite cheap, and you can get one for your niece and paint it however you want.
