    Sorry. didn't mention it, for the exhaust I used an undercoat and a paint that was good for 600C. The rest was done with a good undercoat and metal-protecting solvent-based paint. The same as used for bridges, ocean-going ships, etc.

Size:  98.1 KB It's almost time to break out the duct tape and jiffy markers.
    Foama wins the most meticulously cared for body. I'm shooting for the opposite. I think that green one that Metro posted might have me beat though.

    You should cut that whole section off. You don't NEED it.

    Maybe that's why they came out with the Ralliart edition! So that those vehicles will never have rust! If you can't see it, it never happened!

    Friggin Mitsubishi engineers are GENIUSES!

    Mirage wins! At rust.



    I see a LOT more Sparks and Micras than Mirages, and guess what?

    Haven't seen a rusty one yet.

    It's a matter of time, but this isn't a race you want to win. (Although the Mirages are getting faster as they get lighter!)

    A brush won't do. You'll have to remove the rust using some other method such as sandblasting or Ospho.
