    Things have been going well. Focused on school work for the most part. The car is a happy distraction as my daughter likes to come help in the garage so it counts as family time. Car is a 1995 and sadly I have spent way more in it than its actually worth but it is what it is. I think I have put close to 2K into it and probably could only sell it for $1000. but its a project and at some point its getting a V8 swapped into it and better paint then it will actually hold some value.

    Think long and hard on how fast and powerful you want to make it because I speak from experience when you give her the keys and drives down the road with it by her self. Trust me you standing there until she comes home being very anxious.

    Well I think I have made up my mind, from the picture below. It looks pretty good . Going to finish the ailerons white and apply the sticker. Simple and clean.
    Was thinking of making the ailerons blue but do not think it will look right. Any comments?

    If I still have the car I promise it will be an 11-12 second car if not faster by the time she is able to drive and if she continues to show interest throughout the years leading up to it she will already be experienced and know to respect it as I will be teaching her along the way. Would actually be awesome if in a few years she is still interested and I can get her into a JR Dragster. Something I wish I had done as a kid but I didn't show any interest in cars until I was 15-16 years old.

    Looks great!

    Personally, I like the idea of clean and simple.
    If I did anything, perhaps a blue stripe below the sticker at the same distance away as the orange.

    Thanks for all the help will leave it as is for the meantime and see how it looks when it is put together.
    What’s nice with plastic covering it is easy to add something.

    Just plugging away at it doing all the small parts which just takes time and patience. The wings are done except for the large BREITLING sticker. Will make a picture of all the parts when done.

    This taking a long time and it is slowly becoming work. All the little corners and sides that need to be covered and edged.
     
  10. Yep the devil is in the details.
