Slow and Steady Wins the... (ahem) Race?

Just a quick update to let you know I didn't give up (and makes me accountable to see this through)

Painting yellow over medium grey primer only takes about 8,000 coats. Yowza! Wish I'd done white primer knowing now that I would be painting the undersides with "Pavement" color anyway.

Fortunately though, the green and black sets didn't take so long.

Decided to get the body coats done and then go back and assembly line the finer details.

Paint all the hubs.
Paint all the tires.
Highlight all the windshields.

etc. etc. etc.

Four sets down, three more to go. The "Pink" team is going to fun, like the yellow I fear.

Joseph Knight on Twitter (@OnesUponAGame) asked me how I would be marking the cars as they are used in a given turn. My original plan was to use smaller cubes placed on the trunk of each car one turn and removed the next. But then it occurred to me that the easier solution is to just use the existing car counters on the team board and flip them there as the car takes its action.
