I added a Modern Motorsports Earnhardt bar, I know I could...and have....made my own but it's not very much fun so I just bought them in bulk, lol. (21 of 'em!). I drilled out the holes where the spring posts go....I can't recall who gave me that tip, but from now on I will be doing that with ALL my 2002ish and older builds. I didn't break a post like I usually do, PLUS, it gives a rudimentary working rear suspension.
The interior was sprayed and I actually painted the interior of the body...Something I didn't really do but am doing now, and will continue to do.
Decals were Slixx, and I can honestly say, they stunk. Surprised me how bad they were. The red has absolutely horrible bleed through, it really makes the numbers look bad, in particular. They are almost completly translucent. The decals also had a tendancy to shatter, which was annoying but not unfixable. The top grill is a Slixx goodie sheet item, and the bottom grill the same from JWTBM.
I attempted wheel weights for the first time. They aren't as good as most, they are just silver paint, but it's an attempt at improvement and that has to count for something
Another build coming....

Pardon my ignorance, BUT: What's an Earnhardt bar?
I stopped following NASCAR in Feb. 2001 when I realized I was not a NASCAR fan, I was a Dale Earnhardt fan :cry:

I'm in the same boat as you for Nascar - Lost interest in Feb. '01.

Matt, you may be more prophetic then you think on the PE pins....
Carl, the paint I used was a RC paint called Dark Yellow by Hanger 9. It takes forever to dry, about double Testors Enamel! :shock: Seems to take all kinds of clear. I've put Tamiya, Testors Enamel and Testors Lacquer over it.
Warning, does not react well with Ambroid ProWeld!
