that was a 5 hour paint job, 1 coat of pearl, 3 coats of true blue pearl, 2 of briliant blue, and backed with outlaw black.

i got the body from www.pshobbies.com (they are also my LHS, its cheapest place i get my hobby parts) i payed 28 for the body, 3.50 for each color of paint. The body is made for the Super Nitro's made by HPI @ www.hpiracing.com . they make a street version(wich is what i have) and a off/on-road rally version(wich i plan to get soon)

Good job with the body! Isn't always worth taking the time to do it right. I gotta get or borrow a digital camera and take pics of my R/C fleet. You all will just love it.

I've used at least 100 cans of Pactra Racing Finish trying to find the perfect prodrive rally blue (also known to the public as sonic blue mica).

I could have easily mixed and airbrushed, but I knew it could be done with cans. I also had to see the color in person, the only way I could know it was right.

I was so obsessed with it that I brought strips of lexan I painted to the L.A. Auto Show 2 years ago, when SCC's 2.5RX project was on display.

Many will know Alex Fedorak of SOA brought a can of this paint from Prodrive in England, just so it could be matched to paint the car.

Anyways , true blue pearl needs to be lighter, candy blue backed with silver is to bright. You know which sample came closest? It's so simple it's unreal. One generous coat of true blue pearl, backed with sprint white. It's almost a perfect match.

Keep us updated on the progress of the body!


P.S. Use Testors gold enamel spray paint for the wheels, then shoot them with clearcoat. Lightly sand the rims with fine sandpaper to help the paint stick. It will look fantastic!

wow, i have to say thats one of the best Subaru Rally Mica Blue color matches ive ever seen done with spray cans. Outstanding.

To me the 200mm version looks alot better. I dunno why. It jsut seems more...proportionate.
