Last entry of the Opel Manta GrB of Carlos Sainz !! The car has already finished and is the first of this year 2018!
Pero antes de todas las fotos, los últimos detalles. Empezamos enmarcando la carrocería para pintar los marcos de las ventanas con negro Semi Mate x18 de tamiya, diluido. Hay que tener cuidado porque en las ventanas delantera y trasera no hay marco, con lo que hay que enmascarar muy fino:
But before all the photos, the last details. We started by framing the bodywork to paint the window frames with black Semi Matt x18 tamiya, diluted. You have to be careful because in the front and back windows there is no frame, which must be masked very thin:
And I give it to him with the airbrush but as you can see … many grains!
The painting came out very dry and when removing the masks it tooks a lot of paint because it was very fat. The problem was that I had the compressor with few pressure bars …
The good thing about the x18 on lacquer is that with a cotton soaked in solvent x20A everything is eliminated. Once cleaned it and with good pressure, everything went very well, as always !!
We take advantage of painting the inside and after drying it, to stick the grilles and headlights.
For the photo-etched wipers, I cut two round sticks that I paint them black, and they will be the base placed in the holes of the body:
More details: to the gravure closures I surround them with 0.1 mm tin wire. We see the license plate and the paint of the rear pilots:
At the front, the bent license plate, the fixings of the headlights and the photogravure grates:
The flaps are replaced by ones made with a can of soda:
Detail of the extra lighthouse:
And the final photos, including the paneling made with Tamiya smoke diluted with x20a:
