Hopefully your 5 can method is going to look better :y:

If your going to be using halfords electric orange again try an orange coat after the white primer and before the pearl/flake,
My system was white primer, orange, pearl/flake and top coat, i didnt bother with the clear coat between orange n pearl (as ford suggest) and it dont seen to have affected results :y: oh n the plasticiser defo seems to have done the job, you can twist the shell without any cracking or tearing :y:
Last edit: by goldfish999.

I had a though about decals though - I suspect the green & definitely the blue are going to be thoroughly vomit inducing against the orange - but MCIRacing ( ) let you change specific colours - unfortunately there's no configurator element to see what it's come out like, but 10 mins of basic replacing in PSP suggests if you replaced "apple green" with metallic gold and "green" to brown - and I suspect spending an extra 8 bucks to replace "intense blue" with mirror gold is small potatoes compared with the total budget ;), a custom set of decals would look something like this (only less crap):


They have turned up, yayyyy, i will post pics of them soon :y:
