Big things with little cars

Finished polishing up a pair of Vipers today. Decided to experiment with the SRT-10 ACR before moving on to the GTS-R. These both turned out so well that I plan on doing one of every Viper type. Just need to start stripping an RT/10, GTSR (2.5 gen), SRT-10 coupe, and the SRT Viper...which I have copies of! :D

I took Rocky Clock's advice and started with some 600 grit paper. I then moved to 1000 grit and 2000 grit (thanks painting section at Home Depot!). Rocky Clock also recommended I use a polishing compound with a buffer. Luckily my dremel tool has both a felt buffer and a polishing compound to go along with it. I didn't go as deep on the ACR as with the GTSR, hence the GTSR is a bit shinier. It's hard to get into the nooks and crannies, of which these vipers have a lot. I could have taken it a last step and continued buffing with felt for a while to get that mirror finish, but since I am spectraflaming them, it wasn't totally necessary.

Next step is to spectraflame them. The nice curves on these cars should help them pop!
