Well I am going to call this finished bar one thing, the grill facia is still to be done which I will work on shortly. I have ended up happy with the overall build, it was meant to be an out of box which it is almost but due to issues with the 2K etc this has been around for a LONG time. Paint was Tamiya TS-14, Testors Competition Orange and 2K prior to decals going on. I like the look of the car as it is simple and without all the contingency decals has a clean finish.

I was at the Nascar test at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in July of 1993, saw that car run.  That whole day was a blast!

Shayne...wow, that is slick. I do like that plain testing look. Certainly makes me want to build one. Great job!
