While a lazy project thus far (intended for racing and practice, so an extensive paintjob didn't make sense to me nor did gloss white paint) I plan on goin "vinyl" happy and add some light panel lines to make this lil guy pop more. Also some decals of its own part manufacturers since I don't see a point in real ones that have nothing to do with RCs on RCs.

And like I said in the first post, I kept it white aside from "accents" (don't really consider what I painted a real scheme area, its all too small).

The gfx are white or in this case clear sticky label paper with clear tape overtop for protection.

Nice "version 3"!
Have you done that CF hood with printer and blank sheet of water decal?
Any idea where to buy those sheets (either USA and worldwide sites are good for me).

Avery Clear mailing label sticker sheet. I don't believe in decals since they'll tear off after a few laps. Check Faith getup of this FD via my sig. Same materials.

Are you using Avery 18665 sheets or something different. The matte finish on the 665's makes a good reproduction but black and especially white and yellow don't turn out so well.

Not sure which # but they smudge fairly easily without a layer of tape on top. I'd say its a matte finish and clear ones do require light base color, but peel much easier than white ones.
