new interior after some painting.

now i just have to work on some details and than paint it. I'm also ordering some rims, i think that would be nice. Does anyone have some tips for painting? Should i do it with an airbrush or not. and what kind of primer do i have to use?

I hope you like my 'project'

I'm looking forward to seeingthe Viper finished!

Sorry for editing your post. Some members have Internet access only through dial-up, so big files (in KB size) are really rough on them. We also ask that you keep your pics smaller then 640 × 480 pixels so that they don't screw-up the forums layouts. Thanks for your comprehension! :cheers

The original rims on the Bburago viper just pull off as there just ushed on over a little round part at the end of the wheel stud in the centre. I got the wheels from a Bburgao crossfire and had to thin the wheel mounting pins to fit them and the discs on. I also had a friend of mine help me out with the paint.. it's done in a proper 2 pac car paint called Nova Chrome which changes three colours and then the riiped effect where the silver is on each end. Might be worth while stripping the whole car once youve fully prepped the body and see whatd itd cost just to get a proper spray painter to give it a once over with some colour and clear.

will watch your progress on this with anticipation :cheers :cheers
