That's a cool idea.... I'll add that to my experiments for chrome. I have a couple of those pens waiting for the eventual touch ups....

EMU.... I used Testors paints. That was the brand the hobby shop in stock. The Clear Coast was "Spray Lacquer".

For painted on lights such as the brake lights on the back of the NSX, I lay down a silver base then a clear overlay on top of that. It's not as nice as candy over chrome but looks a bit more lively than a flat color. When using clear Tamiya colors, you also can increase the saturation of the color by applying additional cots. Red for example will darken really quickly with successive coats.

If your club permits venting the rear out, this is a body that really benefits from it. Also shaves a considerable amount of weight. I'll post a pic so you can see what I'm talking about when I getthe chance
