I just started working on this kit, had it painted and then noticed the front valance has one marker light molded in and not the other?  Anyone else notice this?  I have the newest issue, molded in white.

The newer issue 57 Thunderbird, yellow car on box, gave you whtie wall parts to glue on sides of tire.  I did not like these as they covered the molded "Firestone" detail, so I used vinyl paint.  I did try and remove one and the plastic was very brittle and snapped the white wall.  If I can find the other 4 and you want them, let me know and I can send them to you.

I have found an aerosol can of vinyl paint in white at the local auto store, can was about $6-$7 bucks and will last for a lot of tires.  I then used press and seal plastic wrap on each tire.  Wrap tire just tight enough to not distort it.  Then find a line on the tire you can use as a trace and cut the hole out there, like bare etal foiling.  Use the spray can and remove the wrap once pain it tacky.  You can use a sharp Exacto blade to clean up an area of bleed under the plastic wrap.
