Since seing Steve's build I figured I would finish mine up. I had a ton of problems with the old decals and went through 3 sets. The clear was difficult to work with and I am still not sure why. But I am calling it done for now. I still don't have the side windows in, but they don't quite fit right so I will make some better ones later.

Well Done! Looks better than mine!

I only had one set of decals to work with so I was VERY careful with them and used nearly a third of a bottle of MicroSol trying to get them to conform to the bends of the body. I didn't tear any, so I was pleased

The side windows took a lot of "persuasion" before I got them to fit. Lots of sanding, filing and finagling, and I'm still not happy with how they fit, but I'm hesitant to do more to them for fear of breaking them.
