How are you going to do the decals?
Do you print onto vinyl or waterslide paper?

I did not know it was possible to have clear filament... Thanks to highlight, that may be of use in the very near future :-)

This week i bought a kitchen mesh in a 1 euro shop. painted it black, cut it and fitted it to the car, but it didnt look good, then i wasted the whole day creating a mesh structure in Blender, tried to print it with many failures......then i noticed the rafts i used to keep the body parts from warping. played a bit with the settings, only used the 2 bottom layers of the raft....voila a perfect looking working printed mesh.......oh my sometimes i am really an idiot who doesnt see the easy path

I ruinied the chrome, had to put a new coat of red onto the body after i messed it up with a clogged airbrush and bubbled molotow all over the car and my body.... that stuff really needs time to harden, need to give it at least 5-7 days with not touching anything. well, things messed up, fixed and learned for the future

also printed some wall mounts for the cars i have.
