Well now. This is a one race, Richmond II, Rock & Roll scheme Brian Vickers ran. Tried some new details on this build. The base of both roof flaps are made from .020" plastic rod with a .016" hole drilled thru the middle of the small piece of rod, then painted silver. Added three vertical support struts to the rear window that rest against the package tray as in this pic. I painted them silver and should have been black though;

Used a front valance Slixx dayglo yellow decal from a 2002 #25 UAW sheet to get the front valance to match the 1:1 car.

That's a kit helmet painted black with decals from the #17 Kenseth Revell kit decal sheet. I cut the DeWalt parts of the helmet decal off though. Taller rear window blade, aluminum 2 piece tube fuel filler with plastic rod center, aluminum tube fuel overflow, added gray paint to the bottom of the rear fenders and rear bumper to match the 1:1 car. Used flat white WalMart Color Place for primer, Tamiya TS-26 Pure White and Krylon Indoor/OUtdoor Gloss Black paints. Added .040" thick x .100" plastic strip for the left rear skirt, kit exhaust tip cut from exhaust and added to RH skirt, roof camera made from kit sprue, TV panel camera from Modern Motorsport.

Thank you Brandon. Building NASCAR Cup, Nationwide and Busch models is what I love doing as well as the little details.

The radio wire on the steering wheel is 30 gauge wire from Radio Shack. They sell the red 30 gauge, green 26 gauge and copper 22 gauge wire in a packaged three pack. lI use a large paper clip and straighten it out, cut a piece of red 30 gauge wire about 6 inches long and wrap it around the paper clip wire. Push the red wrapped wire together until the whole piece of wire is wrapped around the paper clip wire. Push it together, slip it off the paper clip wire and grabbing both ends you can pull the tight wrapped red wire apart so it looks like a spring. You will have enough to do 2 or 3 steering wheels. Drill a small hole in one of the spokes of the steering wheel, glue an end of the red wire to it and curve the rest of the length of the wire so it goes under the dash when the steering wheel is Elmers glued to the top of the dash.

For the window net, check this out.
