After drying the parts off it was time for priming...

I used Testors enamel grey primer. I plan to paint this beautiful beastie using enamels as opposed to the lacquers I've been using a lot of lately. For one thing, the cost of Tamiya lacquer spray cans has been eating up my modelling budget like crazy so anytime I can get away with using smaller Testors or Model Master paint bottles and the airbrush the better. It will be a good way for me to try out my new Neo for Iwata airbrush too:





Front bench seat. There is some nice raised detailing:



While the primer dries I whipped out the instructions. Steps 1A-1C deal with engine assembly:



Hmmmmm.... I think I'll add some wiring to the spark plugs, solenoid, etc. If anybody has any pics of their models with a similar type of engine with wiring added please feel free to share the photos with me. I'm not as familiar with car engines (at least in models) so I could use whatever help or advice you guys can provide.
