    J.C. I use a wide brush barely overlapping each pass.
    also make sure you don't use too much or it will run and pile up due to gravity. Future is now sold as Pledge Floor Care.

    Red Byron was the first Nascar Strickly Stock champion in 1949. Strickly Stock was the forerunner to what is now known as the Monster Energy Cup series. The kit I used was the Revell 1950 olds kit. I did some modifications to the body to make it look like a 49. The build took 105 hours to complete. The paint is Model Masters Acryl polished and final coated with future floor finish which is now known as Pledge Floor Care.

    Thanks, Joe. I did not see the clear in the picture. Let's call it a senior moment. I bought some of that paint to do a build and I guess I better go ahead and try it. Still, applying that clear and getting that result is phenominal from a spray can.

    Awesome build and finish. So your saying you got that finish without polishing or clearing?  If so, that's amazing work with a spray can.

    This is the first build I have done that actually got published in a magazine. Check out the May issue of "Poncho Perfection" magazine. Its on page 8.

    Thanks, Andy. I really like Chris because he reminds me of the drivers back in the day like Cale, Donnie, Bennie, Bobby, Ricky, and guys like that. The modern drivers are too polished in their look and the way they talk. Chris has a Texas accent and he doesn't try to hide it. And he doesn't look like his second job is being a catalog model.

    Thanks, Dominik, Mike, and Rick. Yes the Chevy dealership I worked at for 37 years got torn down and there's a dollar store in its place. Chevrolet took the franchise away back in the depression of 2008.

    Here is what's left of the decals I made for this build.

    I guess it just depends if they want to go to the trouble of making it into a 50 ford like I did or just use the 49 ford and decal it like the 50 and hope nobody notices.

    Thanks , Don. To me a wip is a wip no matter what it is and should be in the workbench forum.
