Well, I haven't thought much about it yet, but I'll probably just get a black marker cause it has to be real tight. And brush and tight don't go well together in my hands Only downside is that it won't be matte black then. Hmm...

For the window I think I'll push the two parts against each other without glue between it and glue them like that against the window trim.

^ O'Rielley's and others sell paint touch-up "pens" that have a ballpoint pen on one end and a brush in the other. You can get the black you need there, and the gold for the crest.

The permanent black marker would be my approach as well. Try it inside where it won't show - it should be pretty glossy.

You can get silver pens - no idea how well that would work, but again, worth a try inside somewhere.

For the trims, you can use masking tapes to help minimizing spillage. You can buy very fine masking tapes in hobby shop.

Just make sure your topcoat is totally dry (leave it in the sun for a day), and burnish the tape down very firmly with your fingernail so the black doesn't capillary under the tape. When you remove the tape, peel it back at a 180 degree angle to the surface (pull it off parallel to the surface, backwards) to "cut" your new paint line.

When you are done, will you please pain up an oakgreen one for me? I would like a cork/pascha interior, but with a black dash, console, and armrests.

Curious if there were any final photos of this? Would love to see the result.

I wonder why strip it? Just shoot the new colour right on top.

You would lose the detail in dimentions/stampings, etc

It would be like applying 1/4" of paint to your car in full size.

Nice job. I really like the look of the 928 in bare metal too. Kind of looks like an attractive version of the Delorean.

The flakes will be so large that it will look pretty bad. You need model paint, with much, much finer flakes.

Even a cheap Harbor Freight airbrush usually does better than a rattle can.
