I am getting a new 1/12 scale and had a question. When i CA a chassis to seal it i ussally end up with glue all over the place and it never looks that good. Does someone have a good system for sealing a Graphite chassis
Thanks

Actually, I prefer using a q-tip soaked in CA glue but this is a great guide anyway.

Yeah, I never had any luck with the drip method myself. I sand the edges, color them with a black sharpie, and then coat them using a q-tip covered in CA.

I followed the method on CRC's website and it worked great for me, including the "drip" method. Next time however I'll use a blue sharpie instead of a black one for a sweet effect.
