So, it came time finally to paint the car. The funny thing about this is, you
have to paint it on the inside, and not the outside. The reason for this is
Firstly, it makes sure the paint doesn't scratch when you crash it (and you WILL

The little green stickers are on the outside, except for the ones on the rear
wheel wells, which are inside. They're covering up marker marks that show where

go, while you can see through the body when you place it on the car.
