Whew, finally got this one finished. This is by far not well done. I put the tape on the wrong side for the separation line on the B and C pillars which made the yellow too high on both sides. I've always said I'd rather be lucky than good sometimes, in this case it's true. I have a set of BIC Mark It permanent markers, like Sharpie, but different colors. The purple one is a dead on match for the purple paint so I used it to make the yellow areas purple. It's hard to see, but I know it's there. :rant: :pissed: :rant: Should've been more careful. Then I forgot the rubber ducts for each rear quarter window and the "X" roll cage brace behind the seat. Jeez, I really went to sleep on this one.

Beautiful colors, too bad the digital camera can't replicate the shade of chartreuse and purple.

Used a different background, and base, to see if the purple would show better. It didn't. :idunno:

Nice job ! Is there an actual tearaway sheet on the windshield ?

Yes, I make the tear off's. I've made templates for each model windshield, 00-02/03-05/06-07 Monte Carlos, 02 & 04 Dodges and 05 Taurus from yellow post-it notes. Leave the sticky part of the post-it on for the top of the tear off template, this helps hold the template in place while cutting the plastic. Get a small mirror, 4" x 6", and lay a small piece of kitchen plastic wrap down on the mirror. You have to lift a corner up and lay it down a couple times to get the plastic wrap smoothed out. Lay the correct yellow post-it template on the plastic and cut around the edge with a sharp #11 x-acto blade. Lift the template off and put it back with the rest of the post-it templates, and lift the cut piece of plastic wrap off and transfer the plastic to the windshield. It takes a little patience to get the plastic tear off in place and all smoothed out but it's worth it. I use JWTBM goodie sheets, and Mike70SS's 08 goodie sheet, for the triangle tear off tab decals and center windshield inspection dots.

Here is a link to a How To Folder on another NASCAR Model Forum. I make the window nets too as well as other details. I love to do the details. I don't build and install the engines nor do I detail the bottom of the chassis. I do detail the exterior of the body, the interior and the wheels/tires.
