Yup, finished the above body in about 3 hours. Most of the time was spent masking the stripes. One body down, 3 more to go for this weekend

+1, I have 6/9 wheels on my HPI ISF for a FF03. Looks great but not drivable due to fender rub unless you set the body really high which beats the purpose of the wheels.

3/6 should give good looks and drivability.

You've just reminded me that I have that very body laying around waiting on a paint job. Just gotta figure out the right livery. Hmm....

Nice job on yours! Looks great!

The HPI BMW M3 that I painted included the decals for the Yokohama scheme. The instructions also included a link on HPI's website for a .pdf paint mask for the hood.

Looks like HPI just released a new BMW M3 GT2 body. Check it out on their website (http://www.hpiracing.com/products/en/17548/

The 7Extreme Motorsports car is actually tops on my list. I've got lots of pics of it and I love the black/red paint scheme! The decals are the only hangup.

Uhg, those wheels really killed the look of the car. But still a nice paint job.

I noticed Hot Pink neon paint shows up great under the lights at our track so I decided to paint this HPI Celica with Hot Pink and Purple metallic Faskolor.

But, now that its done, my son says, "Girl Car!" and will not drive it!

I know pink is pink, but I always thought Hot Pink was OK? Sheesh!
