    Not only do I like the 2 n 1 kits, but, I also like the double kits, where you get 2 vehicles in one box, for example the Tony Nancy dragsters
    some of those have become parts donors for other builds

    Micheals also sells the Recollection Series Opaque markers. They work great and don't need a overcoat once the marker dries

    Get some pearl powder or metalflake from an auto paint supplier. Comes in many colors, and they may also be able to assist in your paint schemes. The guy I deal with has always been helpful

    I worked in college as a store parking lot security agent, just driving around in a car. If I had seen someone parking like the idiot in the vette. I would have called for a wrecker. That little door ding he was saving his precious vette from, ended up costing him an impound fee, and towing charge. Not to mention that this was before wheel lift tow trucks. A few had more damage from the tow trucks.

    I had a 1995 Chrysler Cirrus. The pin that holds the gears to the axles in the transmission, fell out, destroying the transmission, and halting me from a 60 mph freeway trip to a complete stop. The car had exactly 36,030 miles, just 30 miles outside of warranty. They wanted to charge me about $2600 for the repairs. I made several calls and complaints and they paid for the parts, and I was responsible for the labor. There was no recall. Chrysler covered it up, and would only "take care of it" if someone complained. After 5 years has lapsed, and so did my ownership of said vehicle, I received a check refunding my costs. There is now a recall issued for this problem affecting the Cirrus, Stratus and Bravo. Sometimes these things get swept under a rug, until it happens to a majority. Unfortunately this is "common practice" for manufacturers of anything. Not just cars, but can also happen to household appliances. Don't get me started on my refridgerator problem...

    They do make Yellow and brown, but you have to have a car year make and model for the colors, I found screaming yellow 2007 Ford Car color, I am sure that they would have Daytona Yellow as well.

    Corvette also has bright yellows

    At Michaels Craft, they sell a brand of Opaque markers, they are called the recollections series. They have many different tip sizes as well. They also work great for the white tire lettering.

    Nail jewels are decorations that are glued onto women's fingernails.

    Yes the nail jewels are faceted, but they are really small.

    I used nail jewels for my blue dots. Found them at a Sally's beauty supply store while shopping with the wife. I also bought sanding sticks in differant grits.
