Any old brushes will work (as long as their fairly small). The only time you will be needing them is if your painting little details like taillights or maybe interior details. So obviously your going to need some touch up paints..They should sell those at your HS.

^ Truth.

Light grey primer will work well with all of those colors. As for glue, good thing you didn't buy the Gorilla glue. It expands into a rock hard foam as it dries. Definitely not the kind of adhesive you need for models, haha.

well it says to glue black rubber bits to by the springs part, and I think I used a bit to much glue as when I put the wheels in they gut stuck and the inside bit broke off,

wasn't to fussed as it was my 1st time, so I'm using that to complete and see what it looks like
