    Saleen Transkit?
    Just curious if anyone makes a transkit to turn the Fox body Mustang LX into a Saleen?

    OMG. Awesome. I looked into this a couple of years back as my brother has a MakerBot, but the resolution wasn't there and I shelved the idea. I will definately need to revisit it.

    Question, what/how did you laser scan your Atom to begin with?

    Seems like this would take out a lot of the upfront work and get the proportions dead-on.

    Dry Transfer Decals
    Anyone out there used/run across dry transfer decals as opposed to water-slides?

    I have been working on a IMSA Mustang, whose decals have seen better days. Many were totally unusable.

    Anyway, in rummaging through my stash to find appropriate (if not accurate) sponsorship decals, I happened upon a set of dry transfer decals I had bought and used with my son on his pinewood derby car last year. So I said why not.

    Below is a pic, where the VHT logo is actually a dry transfer. I have to say it was stupid easy to use and very thin (no visible ridge).

    The only downside I can perceive is that the color does not seem to be as vibrant (in this case the black isn't as black...). I dont' know if this is indicative of dry transfers in general or just the set I have.


    While I am at it, i figured I would post a pic of my project so far. I ended up painting the red body accents as the decals were totally gone. Still needs some detailing and a spit shine.

    Nice. Love the color. Very similar to the 1 of 1 "Molly Pop" color that Saleen did for his daughter. I have one of these on a shelf...I think I am feeling inspired.
