Falken 86 Coupe

Postby tokeyo83 » Sat Feb 25, 2012 8:04 am

Had the body laying around and finally decided to work on it :D The paint scheme was inspired by a bosozoku GX71. Only had the front and rear bumpers of the runfree kit.

The inspiration :twisted:

Masked off window trim, body lines, hood, front and rear lights, and falken scheme.

First layer of paint is a custom metallic brown

Next is another custom color, metallic red

then suede to finish off the falken scheme

the color before the window trim is tan (front lip, side skirts, and bottom half of the bumper)

I sprayed a metallic black on the pillars between the front and rear windows, then black for the window trim, body lines, and light outlines.

I messed up on painting the front bumper :Sick: (didn't apply enough paint before I backed it w black) :x :cry: Will try to paint it on the outside or try to remove the paint, hopefully it'll look okay :Think:

And last is the D-craft hood treatment :twisted:

More to come :twisted: and thanks for looking :D

Okay I can't wait to see this! I love how you masked the trim!!!! The way you cut the trim on the inside gives me a idea.... Thank you.
