Finally finished this one up after not messing with it for a month or so. It's a revell round side kit, I didn't know about slab sides at the time so I just went with it. It's box stock except for powerslide decals. The kit decals were shot, and tore apart when they got wet. This was my first experience with aftermarket decals, and I have to say I am spoiled. They were so easy to work with and look much sharper and accurate. Only other change was I lowered the ride height in the rear. It sat up a little high.

Paint is duplicolor grey primer, lacquer gloss black, and clear.

Anyway I grabbed a couple pictures, I'll take a few more later if anyone wants to see. Also posted a few I took along the way.

Nice!  The black cars are the hardest to pull off IMO.  Great model.

yeah powerslide decals are the business for sure! I love em too, and you did perfect getting that black to shine. Very very nicely done. I forget which kits of that bodystyle had the slab sides, but I do believe they're out there.

Really nice build.  I have a NASCAR kit that I keep thinking about, might need to move it higher up my list.

I know Competition Resins has Bassets, some of the 1998 Revell-Monogram kits had them also.

I found them in the Monte Carlos from that series.
