Dewcision 2017

Recommended Posts

Dale Earnhardt, Jr. drove this car at Kansas in the spring race of 2017.  The kit is a Chevy snapper and the decals are from Patto's Place.  The paint is Dupli Color Bahama Blue over a silver base.  I added the side skirts to the car, but did not flare them out.  Patto's decals has some fit problems with this kit to begin with and flaring out the side skirts tends to make the fit worse.  Overall, I was a bit disappointed with this sheet of decals.  It did not have the Nationwide markings for the rear fender and they did not take the decal setting solution I used well at all.  I used Micro Sol and Micro Set as I have with other decals from Patto's.  For some reason this set wanted to wrinkle.  I also shortened the rear spoiler to try and match the 2017 specs.  Thanks for looking.
