Custom Hot Wheels - Lickety Split #6

Back to the drag races.  Couple of fin attempts. Took several tries, made out of a thick aluminum foil.

Interior with the shell.

So I really didn't like how the paint turned out but I didn't have time to strip and repaint. Wet sanded a bit and got this:

Still not great but okay. Next I applied several coats of turtle wax with a q-tip, really scrubbing in and then polishing the extra stuff off with a shop towel.

Came out nice, but you can see the orange peel still...

Added some chrome stripes made out of aluminum tape, then clear coated the entire thing.

Those pics were before the clear coat.  Getting closer!
