I use Power Slide tire decals ( from Mikes Decals ) , use a bit of setting solution and when dry give a light coat of Testors Dullcoat to seal them and take the shine off the tires. Hope this helps.

How come every build I start doing, someone posts a complete build post for ha ha.  Just started this set.  Working on the Ken Schrader Sunny King Ford right now.  Have the hood soaking in the purple pond as I wasn't content with the blue I put on it.  Bruce, what Yellow did you use for this kit or did you just polish the body to a spit shine with no paint ?  I did a test with the Yellows I have and found that the Model Master Kirkin Yellow Enamel I have would replicate the box art best.  Havent did much research yet on this kit as Im working on the Schrader kit first from this set.  I must say that is absolutely pristine.  Very cool build my friend.

In Australia we do not have access to all the great paints you do , so went with what I had ( Tamiya TS 47 Chrome Yellow spray can ). Also the thin red line decal is not easy to use , I used a thin strip of red tape . Hope this helps.

1:24 or 1:25 not sure without looking at the kit box.  Thanks for that info Silver Foxx.  Would it be easier to maybe mask the red line and paint it with the airbrush ?

Beautiful, beautiful build!  The lowering that you did to this build really sets it apart from most Nascar Kulwicki T-Birds; makes it really look good and race-worthy.
