I find that two coats may not be enough to seal the decals unless they're heavy coats and then you have a chance of melting and running the ink . That's why I do 4 very light coats instead. Nothing disappoints more then putting the decal in water and watching the ink wash away. And of course your printer has to have a scanner on top of it to work. Most printers nowadays are a scanner/ printer combination.
Steve, yes you are correct about there being a lot of others to do. I think if I did another one I would just use the w.o.f. 77 monte carlo kit and not worry about the chassis. I would still need to get a 1/25 scale amt kit like the thunderbird to get the right tires and wheels. The aftermarket tires I think are 1/24 and don't look right under the fender wells on this body. The hood would stay shut as well.
Very nice reproduction of the real car but not quite right for the first win car. The tires did not have eagle on them and the windshield supports were on the inside of the windshield plus some other things like the contengencies , but still real nice.
