    I have many AMT/ERTL Promos that I have accumulated and I will be showing them to you as I get them finished.  This one is the promo of 

 the 1993 Camaro Z/28 in the factory paint of Torch Red.

 

    I totally disassembled it and gave it complete detail painting of the interior and chassis.  It was polished/waxed using Pledge furniture polish from the can..

Not bad...Not bad at all...Pledge, huh...I think I might try that....I usually use Future, but I can see how Pledge could have some advantages shot from the can....Does it yellow at all over time?

Great job cleaning up an old promo! I'm in the lookout for a Brookfield Dodge Neon promo to modify myself. Looks good dude!

Sorry about how I posted on the pledge, what I meant to say was I polished/waxed it using Lemon Pledge from the can..  :blink:

Pledge and Future are two completely different types of products guys.  Pledge is a wax, Future is an acrylic clear. 

Favor works even better than pledge from my experience.  Wards off fingerprints even better, and usually costs less.

I did not use any paint as it is already painted with the factory torch red paint, and I just used Pledge to polish/wax it out..

Thanks Brodie.. :rolleyes:
