Well, I've started another, as the 348GTS, F1 monza, and 333Sp Giesse are rolling around to completion. The 333 is pretty much done, just need to add a few more decals, and that's finished. The other 3 are awaiting final polishing.

The 360 I started today was the 360 Challenge, Heritage version, meaning the silver one with the fake dirt all over it. As I've already mentioned in another thread, the first phase was to strip it off all of the decals/dirt that was on it. That took about 20-30 minutes with some liberal use of nail polish removal, with worked great. I plan on leaving it silver, and not adding any other decals to the car. It looks great as such. I painted the wheels that came with it, as well. I'm left with a silver lip, the inserts are black. I plan on lowering the car as well.

Most of the work on this will be exterior, which was all I originally planned anyway. So this should b a relatively quick and easy mod to finish.

While most of the :wwop are true, it's especially true in this case. I'm really liking the end result of this car! Can't wait to share with the rest of y'all.

The 348 is getting some extra detailing since I completely stripped that one out, etc. It's coming together well, but still needs a little work.

The 360, even though it was really easy, is prob the custom I really like right now.

Here's a tip for anyone with a 360 Challenge model to get a better stance in the rear, since it sits way too high. Remove the rear wheel assembly with the one screw in the rear suspension. (this is probablyeasier if you remove the body as well, otherwise you really have to try and bend things around.) There's a little O-ring that sits above the assembly when you remove it. When you reassemble, simply place this o-ring on the bottom, and it gives a much better stance in the rear. A simple mod that will make your 360 look better without any cutting/etc, and it only takes about 5 minutes, as long as you know how to twist a screwdriver.
