Nice! Do you paint it red with black decals or black with red?

 

 

 

Looks like  a ton of work.

Looking at it closer it looks like red with black decals.....

The paint and decals for this build are a little complicated ............. after priming, the blue is the first color to be applied and it is masked off after drying ................ the orange is then applied .............. the first decals laid down are the yellow stripes which circle the body ............... then the black "tiger stripes" are applied .............. the stripes are longer than necessary so they cam be trimmed (with an extremely sharp scalpel blade) at the yellow line .............. after the stripes have been installed and have dried fully, the rest of the normal Nascar numbers and contingencies are applied

 

Takes a little extra time, but I think the results are worth the effort ......... by the way, those decals came from SLIXX :rolleyes:  :rolleyes:
