Now I got Gunze GX04 yellow and am ready to paint the car
Saturday, August 15, 2009, 11:48 AM - Jordan J199Got some minor progress.
The car is all primed. Just waiting for Gunze GX04 yellow paint to come.
I decided to discard the stock steering wheel because it looks really bad... I modified the one from F310B to replace it.

Sunday, July 26, 2009, 10:28 AM - Jordan J199The lower rear wing element is very lousy from the kit, so I used the spare one from Tamiya F1-2000 to replace it.
Extended the rear undertray area.. The rear tires is too far off from the undertray. So I extended the undertray so that it is closer to the tire.
Late season J199 has a pair of aero device on front part of the undertray.
I scratch built one myself with styrene sheet and epoxy putty.
After gray primer, I found tons of imperfection on the undertray... that means a lot of cleanup and fillings to follow..
