Door & Hood Decals

Today I did one more final clear coat spray enamel on the two doors for added protection.
While they where drying I finished the battery box on back of harness. 
Soon as the doors were dry I applied decals.
One area on a door the clear coat peeled away while removing the decal peel, I was so pissed
I'm over it now and besides the mark will be behind one of the shoulder tires, and it kinda gives the outfit character.
The hood decal looks awesome.



Helmet Complete

The Helmet is done!
Yesterday I finished constructing it with remaining parts to be added after clear coat.
Today I applied two coats of enamel gloss spray just like doors and hood.
Once that dried I attached the red forehead wing with cover piece.
Overall the helmet looks awesome, and of course it hits my head.
I need to put some padding inside of helmet for a more comfort fit.
The small round plastic dots on the helmet are screw snap covers, found those handy little parts at hardware store.




Clear Coat

Yesterday I finished spray painting the black & white color coats on the doors, hood and front end.
Today I sprayed a clear coat enamel with 2 layers for added protection on the same pieces.
I also worked on the helmet today.
Once I let clear coat dry on doors, I finished riveting the plastic end pieces
Next is decals on doors and hood.





Missile Launchers Completed

Sprayed the missiles the metallic chrome paint and they turned out awesome.
Both are ready to mount on back harness above shoulders.
