I think using BMF on the hood strip, door trim, & windshield trim would be a good idea.  Are you going to put the Confederate Battle Flag on the roof & the "01" on the doors?

I am not sure if there is enough room on the roof for the confederate flag? :blink:

I was planning on it being on the back of the sleeper! :D

 

The "01" im not sure will fit on the door but im going to try ...and "General Lee" will be put on the hood being lettering is to big for the side of the roof...

Worth a try.  Don't forget the horn that plays "Dixie"!

 

Are you using the decals from the 1/25 or 1/16 car?

So the 1/25 scale "General Lee" comes with the Flag on the decal sheet?  I saw the model on the shelf at a LHS, but the Flag wasn't on the box art.  Not "PC", I guess.

Cool.

 

Yes, I agree with you.  I don't think the Confederate Navy Jack (I misspoke in my earlier post) will fit on top of the sleeper.  Best to put it on the back.  I think the "01" will be too big for the doors like you said.
