Mitsubishi Evo 5 (Carisma)
Posted by PatW on Thursday, July 4, 2019 4:11 PM

I bought this as an already started. The red paintwork was brilliant, but the original builder had glued the hubs,brakes and wheels together. Although the original car was two tone Red & White I didn't want to add the white and mess it up.

 

As a decal printer I always leave a margin when printing, so when I needed a background for a red decal I measured and cut a piece from a white decal sheet.

Hi Pat

Great looking car, I'll have to reconcider partly started kits when you can finish like that.

Thanks Joe, well as a retiree, the cash/budget changes so I look on good old ebay for already starteds, not only to save cash but to get a good deal as some folks are reluctant to buy these as they think, 'what happens if bits are missing' but in the main everything is still there and they all they have done is a great paintjob like this one!

Very nice finish there Pat! Smile

Yeah I do the same with finding kits half started or built but need restoring, can find some true gems at a good price Yes

If you've got some old kits that you're not entirely happy with, you can always break them down and rebuild them.
