I'm not certain this livery is based on a real car as I could not find photos of it however I was intrigued by the combination of colors. I've never used a pink hue before and very seldom a baby/sky blue. I do like the metallic Black Stainless, it always turns out nicely and the flake is very fine and scales well with the car.
The difficult part on this one was like other multi-color combo's, sometimes you just don't get a good sense of the outcome till you pull off all the mask tape. I made a couple mistakes in not changing the blade out for a nice sharp one and left some core marks in the plastic that showed up under final color. Like mask tape, blades are a consumable and shouldn't hesitate to change them. With a fresh blade, you can do fine cuts that don't score the plastic underneath.
This being the third body I've done, the rear side marker lights can be the trickiest things to place. They tend to slide around and if you don't have nimble fingers, can be a challenge. Nothing better than the satisfying click when they seat properly. This kit has many parts like this, which is one reason why it's such fun to build. I have three of them now and nothing really to put them on...
