I did this car as a favor for a friend at work who owned the original 2000 black Monte Carlo unopened kit as part of his Earnhardt collection. The decals were no good so we agreed to go with the "Taz" decal theme since he didn't have one in his collection. Ordered the decal sheet from ebay & painted the body Chevy Flame Red laquer w/ clear over decals & painted the chasis light grey. All comments welcomed. Enjoy :D

Nice clean work.  But you're missing the grill decal?

 The decal sheet didn't come with the grill decal. I found some pictures of the 1:1 car with a black grill so I think I'll paint it black. Thanks for the input.

Refreshing to see a good clean NASCAR build without all kinds of super detail clutter. Looks very nice!
