Prepping the Body for Paint

A how to guide for a great paint job!

 STEP 2
        Look at the Instructions
       
        At this time I will take out the instructions and look at what I can assemble onto the body before I do any painting.  Scoops, fender flairs, front and rear valance panels, most of these items can be assembled onto the body after body prep has been done but before any paint is applied.  This way the different parts of the body will have a uniform color and depth to the paint.

Notice in this picture the instructions are showing front scoops and lower body panels that need to be painted body color.  While the front scoops can be glued to the body, I taped the lower body panels to the body for painting because further along in the build I will need to paint the tops of these panels to represent the engine compartment.
