Time to start prepping some of the parts for painting. I like to get some of the prep work done and out of the way when I can. This way the primer has time to dry and I can be doing stuff to other items. My way of saving sometime during the build. After doing some sanding it is always best to use a tack cloth to remove the dust and small participles before apply any primer or paint
I know some people like to only use plasti kote spray paint on plastic, but I like to use a layer Adhesion Promoter. This creates a great bond and will allow you to use any kind and color of paint you want.
Some primer on the side panel
and a look at the open damaged area
After this comes the fun part of making the case look realistically rough, scratched and rusted. It took me awhile to find a way to get the effect I wanted and I was excited to give it a try.
Up Next… Rust with paint
