I wouldn't condemn the label based on one example. Yes, some of the MPC kits are based on old tooling that has seen better days, but some are better than others. I would suggest consulting this board's review/workbench/under glass sections to get other's opinions on a particular kit before you take the plunge. If you don't see what you're looking for...ask. There are lots of helpful people here.
Thanks, Steve. I did that many years ago , and at the time I figured I would probably never get my hands on a decent '60 Dart. It was a tribute to my dad's favorite car that he got new in the same color combo. It was so long ago I don't remember exactly how I did the upholstery; I believe I used the body color as a base (maybe tinted with another color for contrast), dullcoated all or part of it, hand-painted the dark vertical stripes, then carefully scraped the paint away from the piping. BTW...I think yours looks better.
Now I'm confused re the brake fluid thing. This '64 Vette had (I think) AMT lacquer on the body and the windows. Brake fluid was the only thing I could find at the time to remove it. The windows didn't frost at all. Also...to keep the thread on track, another before/after. This one was almost too far gone.
Found some more. Thanks to John at Round2 for including the convertible boot in the recent Corvair reissue. Pics are showing up out of order but I think you can distinguish between the "befores" and "afters".
That was the plan all along. When word got out that they were had a '71 Demon in the works it was assumed by many that they were just going to reissue the MPC kit, Round2 never mentioned an MPC '71 Demon reissue.
