kinda box stock for the most part well at least no detailing, sad I know. First up I have the Schmacher woder wagon, started off with the JJ vega reissue, this one had a lot more flash than the last one , but I sure am glad to see these available again. So I had to add/make the louvers for the rear window so made a masking tape template from another kit, a hood bulge which I made from a plastic teaspoon ( a little big) but not too bad I think, and removed the front bumpers. Also using 1320 Waynes tutorial I've lowered the ride height a bit.

a little bleed thru on this side and a major white repair on the other as the paint peeled off from the primer :angry: but at least in an easy enough spot to fix. Will work more on this one while the paint hardens on the vega

Looks Good! You do always great work and I like following your builds. Especially I like the Vega so far. B) Decals fit very nicely and paint job turned out nice over all. Can't wait to see more.

I know I'm late sayin' this,wish I coulda been online sooner to mention this before you decaled the Vega Brett, but when I was looking at the pics, something just didn't look right, I went home & checked out a issue of Popular Hot Rodding from Dec. 1973, it had coverage of the U.S. Nationals when the car debuted, the hood scoop (including the normal Vega hood bulge),the roof (including the A pillars & a little part of the front cowl right in front of the windshield) & a stripe on the trunk area should have painted white. Sorry to mention it so late, but just recently got set-up on a computer again (at the local library, where I've been putting in applications). Anyway, the Vega still looks great Brett, the yellow turned out real nice, the Demon is looking good also!
