Yokomo DR-Bling Project - 1/2 way


It's been a while since I de-anodised my DRB.So time to step up.



I previously hand polished the chassis after removing the blue. but without adequate tools, the finish wasn't really up to spec.

Inspired by the D1:10 chassis contest, I decided to break out the Dremel and add a better finish to the alloy. 


The result depends on how much time and polish you use. As you can see, chrome is pretty close.


The DRB bridge is a rough surface so I had to smooth it out before it can get the shine I need.

I'm about 1/2 finished. 6 hours so far.

I could spend loads more time, but honestly, it's awesome off camera. the camera doesn't capture reflection.
