HPI El Camino Body


The El Camino body from HPI is a great body to paint. It comes with separate bumpers and blower that need to be painted and attached with alloy screws. I painted the screws to match the body. I went with a metallic blue and backed it with black for a dark rich blue.


Paint used:

Tamiya PS5 - Black

Tamiya PS16 - Metallic Blue


HPI El Camino Lexan Body


Painting Polycarbonate


Not a whole lot of taping for this body. I kept it simple. I decided to brush paint the chrome pieces but didn't quite get the results I desired. However I am not displeased with it.


El Camino paint


Backed it with black, cut out for the engine and stickered it up. This was actually a simple body to paint.
