Partspin 69 camaro build over the course of this series. I’Ve been turning this revel model car body and some rc component sides sitting around into this awesome. Rc car i’ve called the partspin camaro it hasn’t just been me. Building this car throughout the build process. I’Ve been reading your ideas and have been posting polls asking you all everything from what motor to use to what color to paint the body if you’d like to catch up on this series, i’ve posted a playlist with all the previous videos below in the description. Eu sou.. Loving how this car is turning out so far, especially that metallic blue paint. I laid down in the previous video in today’s video i’m, going to be completing the car and doing some driving so let’s dive back into this build before going any further. With detailing the body, i gave the paint plenty of time to cure. I won’t be doing any wet sanding before applying the clear coat. I posted a final poll asking whether or not i should add stripes and, como você pode ver, adding stripes was clearly the winner before applying the stripes, i made sure to rinse the body. While i was at the sink, i also mounted each tire onto the wheels, as you may recall, from the last video i’m using the tires included with the model kit for this car. The tires are a really tight fit, so i needed to warm them up with some hot water to make them flexible enough to stretch over the wheels.
This tire and wheel, combo, looks awesome and will definitely add to the scale appearance of this car i’m, using the black stripes included with the model kit i’m, going to be applying the stripes a little differently from how they would be from the factory i’m. Just applying the decals from the hood forward i’m not going to be applying these small sections that go around the cowl vents just for the sake of simplicity. This is sort of a custom car anyway, so i’m not going to worry about making it look exactly like a factory original. Another minor deviation from how it would be from the factory is with the rear, stripes i’m, just adding them to the trunk. Rather than going up and over the rear, spoiler i’ve painted the rear, spoiler flat, black and won’t be adding any stripes to it. Although i wasn’t sure how much i’d, like the stripes after seeing them on the car, i really like how they look Music to paint the emblems. I used a toothpick and some chrome silver paint i’m, not the best at painting these small details, but they do look. Nice with a bit of paint Music next, i applied the clear coat and made sure to give it plenty of time to dry. The result turned out looking great, although i don’t mind a little orange peel or imperfections. I did rub in some polish to remove some of the dust that landed on the clear Music after polishing i thoroughly wash the body before i begin painting more details.
I did chip off a little section of the stripe while polishing, which i was able to fix with a sharpie since the car won’t have an interior. I needed to make some side windows, which i can give a heavy tint. So you won’t be able to see into the body. I created a template with paper and transferred it over to some thin, transparent plastic. I made some tabs which i’ll be applying glue to and securing to the inside of the body. I washed all the windows masked off the outside and painted the inside black. Most of the trim on this body. I painted chrome silver there’s, no shortage of thin trim pieces on this body. They were a bit of a pain to make look halfway. Decent masking and painting with an airbrush would probably have produced a better result, but would take a lot more time. Música. Geral, i think it looks pretty nice with these details added Music, i continued by painting the wipers and side marker lights Music. Próximo, i added the tail lights, license: plate, spoiler and rear bumper each part fit the body very well Music. With the back coming together, i moved on to the front starting by painting all the details on the front grille. I ended up kind of messing up painting the hideaway headlights, but it turned out all right in the end Music. I glued it into place along with the hood front. Bumper turn signal lenses and front spoiler Music to make this part here that goes between the rear quarter window and the door window.
I cut a thin piece of clear plastic and painted them chrome silver. These will go on the outside of the side windows. I used micro crystal clear glue to secure the windows since it dries clear if you get a little smeared on the outside, like i did, you can always use some clear plastic polish to remove it. They were a bit of a pain to get glued into place, but looked nice once in Music. At this point, the body is nearly complete there’s, just a few more details to add, including the side view, mirror Music. Finalmente, i wanted to add the tailpipes i’ll be using the stock exhaust included with the kit. It took some thinking to figure out exactly how to mount them, but i was able to get each side secured to the chassis. I ended up gluing this whole rear assembly. In place then cutting away the mufflers so that the panhard bar has enough room, the tailpipes really complete the look of the rear, and at this point the car is Music, complete Music. What an awesome project this ended up being i’ve got to say you all have some great taste in cars. It was fun posting polls and having you all vote on how you’d like the car to be built. I definitely would like to do another build like this. In the future, as for this camaro, i love the paint, color stance and all around look. One thing i might do is reduce the camber in the front, é, maybe a little overkill for what otherwise looks like a regular street car.
An all around awesome build Music, É claro, with the car completed and looking great it’s time to do. Some driving i’ll need to do a bit of tuning, especially in the rear, it’s bouncing around quite a bit. Como você pode ver, eu acho que é, a combo of both the springs and the hard model car tires not being perfectly round. Speaking of the model car tires, they don’t have a ton of traction, no surprise considering how hard they are, but it makes the driving experience even more fun. Na minha opinião, Embora, also a little terrifying since i really don’t want to mess up this beautiful car. I just built the rf 130 motor has tons of power, and this thing is fast. I can’t even give it close to full throttle on this small track and with the lack of grip in the rear personally, Eu sou, not really into spending hour after hour. Building a highly detailed rc model and then equipping it with a motor that’s capable of turning the drivetrain to dust and the body into a modern art sculpture with one wrong move. But i know that’s what most of you like to see and i’ll admit. It does add to the driving experience it’s a lot like driving a full size, big block camaro on 20 year old dry rotted tires. These cars definitely become more fun to drive after you’ve gotten a few scratches Music. So i did state in the first video that i’d be putting this car up for sale once it’s complete.
I figure that being that this car was built in part with everyone’s suggestions and votes i’d. Give one of you the opportunity to own it. I’Ll be posting that link below in the description when it’s ready, Embora, like i said before, there are just a few things i want to adjust before i’ll be posting it. But if you’re interested, the link will be below when it’s ready the stl files for the ffr sc1 chassis that will fit these 69 camaro bodies will be posted on a patreon soon on the live streams i’m currently doing a build with a 70 camaro body using The same chassis once i’ve confirmed that the chassis is good to go. I’Ll be posting. The stl files that’s gon na, be all for this video.
