Is that mica red? what colour primer did you use.
I did a Willy with white primer and then the mica red, came out a bit pinkish like some of your picures.
Not much of a problem as Wendy is driving it :whistle:

More progress on this one....

Well i know the paint result has been discussed many times, but i can tell you that i haven't used the right light for the pictures.
It looks much better in real than showed here. I will take pictures on day light as soon as i can so you'll have a better view of the color.

Anyway, the interior has been painted and installed, the decals added and clear coated. The electronics installed ( for display only ).

Still need to finish the side bars and install them.









Thanks for looking

It's a shame that this is the best you could do :P I'm still working the courage to replace the front guard on mine :laugh: Nice work B)
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem mate :)
