    So, after a few long days of waiting for replacement decals. They arrived last week! I got my stubby little fingers to work. For the last couple of nights I got to put all the decals on. Now if Mother Nature would be kind enough to warm up enough so I can put on some clear. I may need to ask my buddy who has a body shop, if I can use his paint booth.

    Thanks Bruce!! As of this moment I have enough paint. Just trying to find enough patience. Replacement decals can’t get here quick enough. by the way: where is the show being held at? I have never been to one

    I can’t believe how frustrating a hobby can be. I had the large gum ball decal wrinkle up and after numerous times of trying to get it to lay flat, I have no luck whatsoever 🤬🤬🤬 so now I will have to try to start over again. I am super frustrated. After I calm down and realize that this is a learning experience all will be good again. For those few who are keeping an eye on this build I do thank you. Your kind words and encouragement do make this process fun and enjoyable. Chris

    Thanks for the kind words! I was going to try the regular rivets, but I found the archer ones and gave this a shot. They do have there plus’s quick and easy, there minuses is that they can fold onto itself which is a pain. It did take me a wile to lay them out. I think next time I will be doing the old fashion way. chris

    Look what I found today 😊 After getting some chores done. I decided to bring this out and give it a couple of coats of paint. Hopefully in a few days I will get the decals on this and clear coated 🤞
