Darrell Waltrip’s 93 Western Auto Lumina

Recommended Posts

I was going to keep this quiet until the Atlanta NNL, but I’m not good a keeping secrets!  This will be DW’s 1993 Daytona car.  I’ll be using the upcoming new Powerslide sheet.  I modified the 89/92 Lumina to 93 specs using the Powerslide front/rear bumper set.  The paint is Tamiya neon red, black, and white.  I’ll clear this with Gravity tomorrow, wet sand, and polish, then wait on the decals.  They hopefully should be in in a few weeks.E4848908-A2E8-412E-B874-71CDBB961220.jpeg.20d9fc2d367e0cfb5f0b12eae43b927e.jpegF3788ED1-DC53-49AE-BCE6-341E3AE4A421.jpeg.645bad5313199ff94d7efdd28aa1699a.jpegEEB82427-8002-4BE2-B76D-F13250F530E6.thumb.jpeg.0357d0f7810175efa37a370465918460.jpegC71B589E-1BF0-424C-9F11-C75B6A1AFCC6.thumb.jpeg.5325f559aa5127d7af3724b4c1e483a3.jpeg04E494CE-D61A-4B56-9A33-73E9AFA69B21.thumb.jpeg.9207be70ecb81d45aa2fead5067d5968.jpegD8D16944-54A7-4FBD-B9C3-7A5E5EA2BE58.thumb.jpeg.c9cac51942f53e7e916d66b5bd5f38bb.jpeg4B7E0622-824D-462E-B33A-690EE470F20E.thumb.jpeg.f335eafc96b93582f9c9af0e724879f5.jpeg89CF7EE2-A192-4F4D-BAAD-BF2B7CBE7FAD.thumb.jpeg.7ceb8e48545000c075a23399a8c140a4.jpeg5F2E09D9-FCE0-428C-AA61-98B2A8ACD42C.thumb.jpeg.ea65e60ffc48e0f00e7a032c2ac1fc90.jpeg8137A8D2-4A70-4980-B021-3EE0C621BCFE.thumb.jpeg.1b0115db54b6ebf2949f4dfb158cf996.jpeg4A7490F2-3039-4234-80CF-34E83439418F.thumb.jpeg.7a6327b05104199342c856a53850ce73.jpeg57D7849F-FAC2-4382-AE03-B2C60F035367.thumb.jpeg.56c470a138a318fe556db794b7c917c4.jpeg525AC500-433A-436E-A815-2307295BA405.thumb.jpeg.dd23582aa21a116a2061b065034ee011.jpeg1C1517A7-E076-44CD-8D63-738E53D1EF98.thumb.jpeg.5ac4ac570422de003863947d9c3ee1a4.jpeg

Cleared with Gravity and polished out with the Gravity polishing kit.  I can’t wait for the decals!

Wow, polished out nicely. Can you explain how the gravity polish kit works? is it just sandpaper or a combination of sandpaper and polishing compound?

Finally got the new Powerslide decals in for this.  They are fantastic in every way!  I’m hoping to have this wrapped up soon.

Never a favorite car but your craftsmanship is great!! I just bought the chrome body kit for $5 hope it comes out near as well as yours.
