Try using a fast setting CA glue for sealing the chassis. I have used a medium set, and I got the white marks like you talked about. Later I switched to the fast set and no problems.

hes saying to take some wheel polish (chrome polish) and shine the CA. Using a dremel tool can speed the process.

Is that what you meant?

so if everyone knows that Carbon fiber can short batterys, cause glitches and whatever else was mentioned, why dont the carbon manufactures, seal the edges for us just like they seal the top and bottom?

Wanna pay another $40.00 on the kit price for the labor that goes into that???

Remember...these are MODEL cars. Last time I checked, the skill of MODELING requires some sort of labor and skill to create a nice end product...

The above reason is partly why I don't get people knocking cars that require some minor hand fitting to get proper function. Since these are models, whats so wrong with requiring some modeling skills to complete them?!?!?!

i just have a bad relationship with CA glue, either i glue myself to somether, or i glue my towel to the table, or i glue the bottle to the table or the cap to the bottle, my 5 dollar bottle of Ca ussually i get one maybe two uses out of it, then i spill it or ruin the bottle or something.

ive resorted to premout tires, and anything else that needs to be glued, doesnt get glued unless someone does it for me lol

That's one of the most sensible posts i've ever read on a forum. These are KITS that require time and patience to get right.
None of my cars are perfect I admit, but I don't moan about the manufacture for a problem I could have sorted.

Exactlly, sorry if i wasnt very clear. but it looks really nice when finished. If you really want to take the time like I do. I usually use 3-4 coats making sure entire surface is smooth and even. Just goin back and forth CA and then sand CA and then sand.

I hear that

ADDED NOTE 2: When prep CF I take a quarter 25cent piece and place it on some card board and then put CA on the quarter I use this as a tray and then I use an old small flat head screw drive to applicate the CA to the CF.

That white residue is the bit you sniff while admiring the good job you did.

Default Better way...

Wet sand the edges under water, dry, then apply a thin, fast drying CA with a Q-Tip carefully to the edge. It comes out super smooth and nice looking with no sanding of the glued edge.
