    This is what I started with. Jerry Toliver Toyota Celica body. Scott's car is a Solara. Same front end's! I used Aircraft Stripper to remove the paint.Then a coat of gray primer. Then I went and had DHL Yellow put in a rattle can. As far as the decals, I took them off the real car and shrunk them to the size I needed.The DHL on the side and the red strip down the middle of the car were drawn free hand then made into a decal. Four coats of acrylic clearcoat to finish it off. I really enjoyed building this tribute car to Scott!! Dave!!!

    The cheif starter at the dragstrip made John and his brother Louie who owned the car stop running it because pieces of the chain kept hitting the cheif starter everytime they ran it. Dave!!
