<p>Finished bead blasting this Taxi and the MGA. Looking good for primer now. I have washed them off and they are drying in my toaster oven. I have already taken pictures so here they are.
Even the hubs cleaned up nicely.

the driver and interior is an intersting piece of casting...

Yes and his head has great detail as well as the meter on the side open door. More great detail.

I have painted the taxi the Dark Blue that completes my set. One all Yellow and one Yellow/Green I already have.

Here is the finished product. Driver detailed face done with Testors Flesh color. The rear and front bumpers along with the grille and headlights are all done in Testors Silver Silver.
This completes my set of three. The other two are the all Yellow version and the Yellow Green Two Tone version.

I caught that bit of silver paint on the grille surround. I have removed it.
