Nice bodies, can't wait to see what you do with them! Do they already have a chassis or are you building something for them?

Trying to take my time on the bus because I'm only planning to paint it and later make a new interior but use the working "crap" electronics. It's not going to be a race car it sits to low.
So on to my painting woes put down white on both cars to get them ready for two tone paint jobs. Worked great then sprayed the bus it's blue and sure enough I get a finger print. Not even a smug but had to be repainted. Second time around and it gets tipped on its side as I transfer it to dry. Third attempt I get runs. Sand them out and now fifth attempt and at the very end of spraying the can spits out paint. Was a good paint job but just wanted one more pass.( )
So anyways as I wait for paint(Tuesday) to finish the paint job but until then.
Some pics

Attended the proline by the fire rc scale city and rushed to just get outside done.
I need to still figure out the hinges for the deck lid but the pics look cool.
Need to take my dslr next time.
