Prep main chassis like usual, then I mixed some ford polar white with a hardener and thinner. applied with small ass brush and beer to stop hands shaking.

One thing that also works is liquidmasking the chassis, trimmibg off the edges and spraying them with an aurbrush.
Im sure that car will make some peeps buy an mi5 for sure.

Very nice, I can't even see where the sensor wire is going through.

What do you guys think of the car with the dyed parts?

Likely the last time the Photon gets any wiring work before I jump ship, a little bit of Tekin power thanks to a mate, chasing reason why old electronics felt slow.

First time I have tried an under the deck battery wire layout, not hard with the Tekin, and yeah I know the rest looks like rubbish, I'll shorten the other wires once I get a new car and figure that out, though not looking forward to shortening the three wire transponder...
