MY Audi TT Body

Hmm, I am extremely please with the look of this car. It still needs to be decaled and cleaned up a little bit but I think you will definitely get the idea.

Very nice. It will look even better once you clean up the edges and add some decals.

Thanks guys, I have to say I am completely happy with the way this body turned out. I am pretty sick right now so It should be a couple of day's when I get it cleaned up and decaled. Fridge yes it is an HPI body. Odd part is I have had this body laying around for about a year now. Late

Hpi bodies don't look good without the wing because youll have those two big humps on the body where the wing is supposed to go

Very nice!!! One word of advice, always use 3M high grade masking tape and make sure you let it sit for an hour or two before you pull the tape after painting. This will give you the clean crisp lines you are looking. Very good work and paint scheme keep it up!
