New to drift, here's my body so far!
#1
Hey guys, Das_TrA here. been lurking on the forums for months now, got my first chassis a little over a month ago and have been working on my body as I learn to drift. Wanted to post my progress for some pointers and general critique. Biggest question, should i cut out the holes on the front body kit? would that look good without model intercooler parts?

great jod on your shell , it looks awesome . about your questions . I usually mask them instead of cutting them out , it keeps everything much stronger imo . As far as looks go , you can always use the decals supplied with body until you get intercooler / oil cooler parts .

Thanks for the response! thanks for the response about the decals, looking at these pics the decals actually don't look so bad, I think I will just leave it as is until I decide on what cooling parts I want to go with. Also, I've seen that hellaflush does their own set of RC decals, but are there any other places to get good decal sets for RC drifting? or is it kind of make your own other than them. I don't need a bunch, I plan to keep the car clean but I want enough to separate if from other white 180's (other than the lack of black trim)

Easy cheap trick for detailing a body... Sharpies!

Extra fine black for trim lines, and seams. Colored for marker lights etc...

They will stay on for a long time, and they wipe off with rubbing alcohol.

you can always use micro line tape from abc hobby , it lifts after awhile and needs to be redone . but comes out straighter than sharpie's . FaceWorx make drift decals and will do custom decals also .
