I finished this one up yesterday morning and I'm beyond proud of how it turned out! The decals were defanitly tricky but they came out pretty decent.

Really captures the look of these outstanding race cars. Just a thought on the hood. Have you considered opening the vents on the hood bubble ??

I've been working on my 64 Fairlane for what seems like an eternity now. Had to strip it and repaint it after trying to do the chrome with a Molotow pen. Dreading the foiling, which it looks like you did a very good job on. Anyway your Thunderbolt looks great.

Looks fantastic. I’d be proud too. Funny you had problems with the decals. I thought these decals, out of the box, were the best I’ve ever used. I suppose we all have a trying decal day....

You’d be correct, first time I used them to chrome the wheels and it looks like kit chrome when done

Lol... I tried a set and ended up stripping them, and going with Alclad. The pens are great for trim though.
