Nice! What did you use to tint the windows?

I tried *spraying* the windows on my blue body last night and it ruined the white paint on the roof. Not too happy about it.

Here what else I did.



Willy 2 jerry can. This will go on the yellow body.

Added some strait axle adapters, Tamiya carbon steel drive shafts, Tamiya CR-Tuned 35T motor and a 16t pinion gear.



Some action shots!





Seems much more capable now. And much more fun!

I've been looking for a nice scale jerry can. WW looks good on there.

I've painted about a half dozen FJ bodies. When I tint my windows, I use Pactra window tint, I back the white top with silver (I usually do a pearl white top) then back that with Pactra backing black. This will keep any window tint from ruining your white top. I prefer Tamiya rattle cans for the most part on body colors but prefer the Pactra window tint to Tamiyas "smoke". I haven't had any issues mixing the two although I let the different brands of paint try for a few extra days before spraying a different brand.

Also, I always heat paint in cans with hot water which is esspecially critical on window tint. Plus, any little hair on the surface will show with tint. After washing & drying, I hit with a hair dryer before spraying. Then fog it, ever so lite with very thin coats.
