Wayne, could the bleed through on the graphics have been avoided if the camo and logo were all on one decal? If it could have, I can put images together in Photoshop for you.

Just found this build-up today & checked out the full build, the paint looks awesome Wayne, really like the camo decals,it's really too bad that Chris had to shut down TEM, I had just found him before his first move to help take care of his mother & had ordered a few parts (nitrous bottles, nitrous fuel cells, the 3&4 speed transmissions & the blowers), I had to wait awhile before he was able to send the parts, but the wait was worth it, the parts are great looking & so highly detailed for such small stuff,and just before he closed down for good I had ordered the Firebird body & a hood scoop, oh well. Can't wait to see the chassis when it's done, Keep up the good/great work!

Dave, these decals that I am creating for my own use are real simple inkjet decals with no graphics programs on my computer. I am not in the market to spend big dollars for any fancy software (which would allow me more versatility for designing) and I am having plenty of fun doing this as simplified as it is. Thanks for the offer but I'm good with what I have access to and figuring out any issues as I go.

I haven't decided yet which clear I'm going to use. I usually use Dupli-color clear lacquer but lately I have been experimenting with either two part urethane sprayed through an airbrush or a new clear glaze that I stumbled upon at Michael's that works well over these homemade decals.


I'm curious about the glaze that you found at Michael's. I tried an acrylic clear over lacquer that had dried for several weeks. I got a great result after rubbing it out. About a year has passed, and I recently noticed that the clear is cracking. I'm in the market for a non-urethane clear that I can spray over anything that will not take a month to dry.

A little more done here. A few more framerails added as well as mocking up the excellent photoetch seat from Dirtmodelor. I had to trim just a bit off the top of the seat back to get it to fit right.

Here is a bit more on the chassis. Added rails for the front suspension and the firewall. Now I have to make some adjustments to thr front framerails to enable the RG engine to set down in between.

Looking good Wayne, Is that firewall out of a prostock kit? Fits good.

Thanks Dave. The build is 1/25th scale however, not 1/16th scale. As impressive as a lot of these 16th scale builds are on here I have never had any interest in building at that size.

I believe that it is one from one of the Olds. pro stock kits. It needed a few alterations to fit properly and a little more work left before it's 100%.
