Thanks for the steps on the striping and the products used, I also will be needing this process for my
Cuda and its looking like Box Nova I'm working on now darn it.

Good luck on getting it right this time.

Is it the 1/24 or 1/25 kit ? Those wheels are motor wheel spyders. A rare vintage mag. I would like to know what kit they are from as well.

I figured it out!.... Those 'spyders' are from the AMT/Ertl 2006 release of the 1:25th  '79 Firebird Trans Am Kit

Got it in a lump buy

Tis is the first time I have seen a WIP run in REVERSE!!!!

Been there...done that, sorry. I have the same one on my bench now. Where did you get the 440?

Joe.

Yeah, will it end with all the parts stripped and stuck back on the sprues, bagged up inside the sealed up box?  :wacko:

I'm going to try a clear flat spray over the black T/A stripes in the kit

Flat  stripes on polished body w flat hood

And of course BMF

Saw a picture on-line of one painted like that and it looked awesome.  Continued good luck on your build.
