Hi Guys.

I recently got my P1 Stunt from George.

Firstly, thanks to George! Working on this fella is so cool. And thanks for the advice. Not just a new Bio but a new friend also.

Anyway..

I have spent at least two hours a night working on this one. Sanding, sanding, filling, primer, sanding, filler, primer, dremel. You guys know the score.

Re doing the dodgy fin line at the rear was so nerve wrecking. Its so easy to go off line. If anyone else is to do this I suggest that after you've marked out the new line, run along it with the back of a craft knife pressing quite firmly before you dremel to give it a grove for the dremel to follow.

I still have a lot to do but here are a few pics so far. The pics just dont do the finish justice as it is so smooth.

Any comments or advice will be well recieved.

Thanks.
Christian.

Ha.
George said exactly the same thing.

I wasn't actually trying to get rid of the dent. It just dissapeared when I was sanding the brow to re shape it. No filler there. I wouldnt of minded if it stayed. I like quirky things like that.

And the next step...

Had to remove the paint and start again as I had a bit of an accident. Wont go into that!

As you can see I've gone away from the affect on the crown and gone back to plain black. I've also used a lot less gloss. I want a polished look but also want it to look used so Ive buffed it back with a scotch pad to give it a slight tarn.
Still loads to do though. Loads of cleaning up around the laser shroud.

A bit more tidying and it should be finished.

Thankyou so much my friend. Such kind words. Appreciated.
I worked like hell on the prep of this one.
Black is a good colour. Only thing is that it shows every flaw.
I'm so glad you like it though.
