Updating my old Dupont Monte Carlo

On to the progress. . . Here's the extra material to make the body continue straight down.
And the rear got some attention as well.
This is how it looked when I pulled it out of storage.
Ready for some detail painting.
Out with the old and (almost) in with the new! I've got a set of Slixx decals to go on the new body.

Gary's (impcon) thread about restoring old models and glue bombs reminded me that I never posted the finished result of this restoration.
Here they are side by side.
You can really see the difference the slab side makes in this picture. Also the small amount added to the bottom of the rear qurter.
these pictures show how much higher quality the Slixx decals were compared to the Box decals below.
One last shot to show off the new body work.
Thanks for looking.

I can see lots of good old hard work went into this one, and it's paid off....Very nice looking car.....The paint has been applied expertly....

looks great with the body work but you could of cut that area out and put a piece of plastic in place to make it a slab side

Looks great! I've always been more of a Rusty Wallace & Tony Stewart kind of guy, myself... but very nice work! I have a couple of NASCAR kits to build, and your work is inspiring - thanks for sharing!
