    The A-Team van ones would be a pain, probably paint them red, then get an extra fine brush to brush on the black, then clear to your liking.

    Here's those pics I mentioned a couple days ago, almost forgot about them!  Looks like the antenna on the roof might be the only issue with using the MPC decals or stickers.

    I'd strip them, shoot them in flat black, then either dry brush or Sharpie the aluminum parts.

    True, but at least you aren't paying $50 not to get that engine ;)

    Dad just told me the starter on my Jeep is dead, the solenoid won't engage.  Luckily, it's no longer my daily at least!

    Looks like nice kit!

    The people trying to make that out to nearly be on par with a war crime.........I actually find myself agreeing with Father Phlaiger (sp?) here.

    I'm digging that one, just needs that door handle shaved to clean it up some.

    That's what makes me think Meth.

    If we're lucky, somebody turns into a rolling lab and it accidentally blows up!

    What year Challenger?  I'll have a Snap GL and a '10 R/T Classic kit at my immediate disposal after work tonight.

    Something that looks like those in R/C form would be kinda fun and different to drive.

    Maybe instead of a true nostalga class, make them run funny cars that actually represent the model they're supposed to look like.  If you want 2dr's make them actually look like a Mustang, Challenger, or Camaro. Want something slippery and the  number of doors be danged, make them look like the Fusion, Camry, 200, Malibu, ect. Yes, distort them some to fit the chassis, but make them look enough like the model they're based on without resorting to just grill and lights stickers on a blob as an identifier.  More Stock in Pro Stock would be good too, instead of everything special and specific, why not build it off a stock platform or at least go back to stock bodywork on a tube frame with an engine that is somewhat related to what's on the street, even if it's made specifically for racing . Then when it comes to EFI vs Carbs, look again at some of the street racers, tuners, hobby racers that don't have as stringent rules and are willing to play with modern technology, there's power to be had in a good EFI system, and not some "lipstick on a pig" TBI nonsense that even GM gave up on by the late 90's either.
