    First Attempt at Painting Clear Body

    Still need to sand some edges but this is what my first try looks like. I'll probably try some simple graphics on the next one.

    It was tough cutting the wheel wells out even using a lexan curved scissor. This Hummer body is tough.



    Edit: one more pic.

    I do have one. What would have been the best attachment to use?

    Well first I just use scissors and cut the excessive plastic off... Then I take the dremel with the sanding attachment (really doesnt matter the grit of the sanding attachment) and just start sanding the fenders and and tricky spots! But like braaap58 said, dont take to much time doing this as 5 runs later it will look like poo again lol!

    You could also us a "score and tear" technique. I found it to go reasonably quick with excellent results, and no scissors used.
