Work In Progress Hotwheel Custom Spoon Civic 2001

Just started this custom although received this car last month. Yes, another custom civic s.i 2001 and this time is Spoon version as requested by YU5H and arttt_anime. The civic for art will be shown later stage. As i was aware, most of the time i didn't show my work of progress because as i work along with my custom in full attention and concentration and i didn't have some time to take photo. This time, i'll be showing my works in stages.
Here's the original civic S.i before custom works begins
After removing the casting using electric drill off the rivets on the base of the car, the casting now coated with paint remover.
after that, full hard sanding to casting. This is to smoothened the casting line especially on all four corners side which are visibly clear. It's tedious job,he!he!.......but need to apply or regret later!
When finish sanding (including soft sanding), i've apply some primer coat with spray works.
as for second day, another spray coat of yellow applies.
Update as works continue on 27th Aug.2009.
After overnight, i masked the casting and sprayed it over with white colour as base colour.
Another blue colour spray applies here.
When the blue colour dries, i've removed the masking and proceed to masking the front headlight and rear light by using my custom tools or known as scissor, cutter and tweezer. After that, i used small tiny brush tip to paint the front light and rear light.
As works continue:
updated as on 31st Aug 2009;
