python patrol subset within cobra is a love or hate it kind of thing adn i always happened to like it so i took a used 575 whitebody and gave it the pp treatment. i still have to finish the rear spoiler and wheels, not to mention the stickers but got the majority of the paint done this weekend.

i've done this theme many times on gi joe vehicles so i have some practice in laying down the mask work. it takes a bit of time and frustrating but does the job nicely.

to begin, a base coat of satin burgandy is laid down. used krylon fusion.

first i have to go all one direction after timming strips of mask tape.

next, i have to cut more stips and go back over it all in the opposite direction.

i took a bit of time in before painting to do some body work. i cut out 2 of the front scoops and the hood scoop.

then cut out 2 of the rear scoop areas and the back of the rear splitters.

Awesome job! Looked like a wicker basket with the tape on it, I thought you might have hand weaved a Ferrari in your free time.

Wow! Bodies like this should be worth more than those ASC bodies. This one must've taken a long time to do. Good job!!
