This is my version of Dale Earnhardt Jr’s 2008 Nicorette 300 entry for the Nationwide Series race in Atlanta. This is a Revell 2007 Monte Carlo SS Kit. I lowered the ride height and reworked the nose just a little, the engine was built with Pro Tech, VCG Resins, and alclad parts and paint. The body is Tamiya bright red, Tamiya pure white, and Tamiya matte black. The decals are from MPRMPRMPR, as well as a few from Powerslide and Slixx. This car has sat in a box for almost two years and I’m glad to finally finish it.

Thanks everyone, I honestly didn’t think I’d ever finish this one up. I’m starting on a Days of Thunder car this week, so stay tuned. Also if anyone is on Facebook go check out my page, Hadden’s Raceday Replicas.

Wow, great job. Could I trouble you with any advice on applying decals? Did you apply them directly over the paint or did you clear or polish first and did you seal the decals in any way? Thanks for sharing.

I clear the body after painting, then I apply the decals and then I seal the decals with future.
