Looks really nice Neal, will you be doing the BMF around the windows too, or no?

Looks great.

Ertl made that car in one of the GTO turquoises. It may have been the light color.    A few years ago the 1/18 emblems decals would have been a hot seller.   I could use some correct Z-28 emblems.

When I tried that several years ago, they looked good on paper but were kind of transparent and didn't show up on a black surface.   Fred Caddy made the decals for the 1/18 Camaro but the ones for the front apron and the trunk were incorrect. 

 

Thanks

Thanks Neal.  I have used the white paper before but the Camaro script needs to show the body color under it.
