  1. This is the first of several Geoff Bodine cars I’m working on. He’s my favorite driver, so I’m sure you’ll be sick of them soon 😂
  2. I’ve been going through a stage lately of doing cartoonish themed racecars. The hood was actually quite easy. I always use Walthers solvaset for my decals and it works great.
  3. I’m looking for. 2000-2001 Monte Carlo NASCAR glass pieces. thabk you!
  4. The body work is done, I’m going to clear it and start work on the chassis. I designed the decals and had them sent to my printer to produce. This set was laminated, I’m leaving the laminate off next time.
  5. I placed an order on October 17th and still haven't received it. I've got two different emails about shipping my order, but haven't received an update.
  6. That’s kind of amazing/sexy. That metallic blue is 👌🏻
  7. Same here. I’m kind of salty about the body too. No one runs that kind of body. I don’t know where the reference came from. i am kind of excited to see how the body turns out since I’m making a lot of it from scratch.
  8. Same here. This post is armpit deep in speculation. If they get a car that closely resembles a street car, then that can only help, right? - The Xfinity cars already run composite bodies which are pliable, don’t snap like mentioned and reduce cut tires. Kevlar components will also be a big part of the body. I hope it does help things. As much as we piss and moan about it, great racing will cure a lot of it’s current ills. In the meantime, go support your local dirt track and watch some amazing racing. They need all the help they can get.
  9. I’m sorry if this isn’t supposed to be in this area. If it isn’t please remove. This is one of the new Joey Saldana Revell kits. The bodies are kinda atrocious, so I took the initiative to make my own sides to make sure they are somewhat accurate.
  10. Your cars are so crisp. Cudos 👏🏻
  11. That's sexy. I loved that series of Camel/Winston cars.
  12. I did a Greg Biffle car with JWBTM decals. They're very nice.
  13. These are some decals I designed and printed myself. I’m still learning a lot of the home printed decals. Wearing rubber gloves helps reduce the color rubbing off. I tried to apply acrylic after I cut them out and that sealed it off to the point wear I could get them. I now put two sets on each sheet of paper so I can have extras to fall back on. I still have a lot to go with it. The eagle text tore off the LF, so that's added to the list of things I need to finish. I’m not thrilled with the ride height/stance, so I’m gonna slam it down a little more. I printed off a lot of the Monster Energy green so I can place it on the splitter/valance area and spoiler. I'm getting there. I'll post pics soon of it finished.
  14. I forgot about the Dexter's Lab #9 cars. Thank you for sharing. Very cool.
  15. Noted. I've seen those kits at Hobby Lobby, I'll pick one up the next time I've over there. Thank you Mark.
  16. Thank you for the input. I used one of the small rattle cans. I'm not familiar with the 2k clear cote, but it seems quite popular on here?
  17. I’m having fun playing around with different lighting locations and techniques. - Clint Bowyer: 2018 Darlington throwback Ford Fusionx. Powerslide decals. Wheels are glued to hubs. - Bill Elliott: 1998 McDonald’s Big Mac Taurus. Powerslide decals. Wheels are glued to hubs. (Missing the Eagle on RR tire)
  18. This is the 4th completed car that I’ve been proud to share with the board. Geoff’s my favorite driver from back in the day, so you’ll be seeing quite a few more builds of his. The decals were quite brittle, so I bought two sets and put a healthy amount of acrylic on them. Between the two, I finished the car and had to clear it due to the satin-esque finish on the decals. I glued the wheels on the car to get better placement of them. My next personal challenge is to learn how to sand and polish the finish. I want to be able to remove the orange peel texture. I’d love to hear feedback and advice on how I can improve. Thank you in advance. -Seann
  19. This is so cool. I love how we have the chance to do these cars and keep them in our memory.
  20. I have a quick decal sheet question from the Bowyer throwback set. There are two assets on the sheet i’m sure what they are? There are a series of 4 black dots that I assume would go on the grill? But those are usually brighter with more contrast. The other element is the 2 columns of dots. At first, I thought they might go on the highlighted area on the car, but they are too long. thank you to everyone for their help.
  21. That’s a good idea about the tire scuffs. It would have saved me a painted body not too little ago.
