Normally, I would paint all of the graphics, but due to the small details and time constraints, we decided to use stickers. We used white printable stickers and printed graphics we found on a Google image search. We cut out the stickers and placed them on the car.

We then laid down many light coats of clear paint.

Note: Even after using balsa wood for the added pieces, the car weighed 6.1 oz. We had to hollow out the under side byr drilling and using the dremel tool.
