My main concern is that after I apply the camo decals and go to overlay the letters and number that the camo will move when I rewet it Which is why I thought I should clear over the camo then put on the lettering/sponsors?
Started a new project recently and I had a question. I'm building the Richie Stevens Mopar pro stock ride with slixx decals. The decals come with one set for the camoflague background and the other set is the actual lettering and other images. Should I lay down a clear coat and put the camo on then clear over them? Can you even clear over slixx decals? I plan on using DuPont urethane clear. I don't want to ruin my decals so any advice/personal experiences would be a big help. Thanks!
I want to apologize for the lack of updates the past month or two. My computer died and i couldn't get the pictures uploaded. Big update on this one- and by "big update" i mean IT'S DONE! I used Bare-Metal Foil to complete the lower half of the grille. There was a slight fitment issue with the dash connecting to the window which connects to the hood. Also, the cage came with some headaches. Other than that everything went together pretty well. I used slixx decals for the tires. It is wired using pro tech wires and looms as well as a little bit of braided line. The A/N fittings are homemade from bead fittings. My favorite part of this car is the engine which i spent a lot of time detailing. This is the most detailed i have ever gotten on a build and i really enjoyed it. There is a lot left that i can get into when it comes to detailing. What i have here is just scratching the surface and trying some new things.
I am really proud of this one. I usually nit pick my own work and i am typically never happy but i really enjoyed this build. It may not be completely clean or accurate but i like it. So here are the pics. Questions, comments, and criticism are always welcome. Thank you all for following along and helping me through this one. Can't wait for the next one!
Made a few more big steps to finishing this one. Painted the body and other parts a light red. Taped off the underside of the hood and painted it semi gloss black. As you can see the interior is starting to come together as well. I installed the transbrake button and wired it up under the dash. Ill keep it brief and let the pictures explain themselves. Thanks for hanging with me!
Comments/Criticism are appreciated.
