1985 Winston Cup Champion Darrell Waltrip Budweiser Monte Carlo

Recommended Posts

Weather was good the past couple of days so, I decided to get another another championship car started. I noticed that in 85 it appears the cars didn't have the lower valance on the nose so, I trimmed that off. Primed, painted and cleared. Tires have been decaled and dull coated. Will be using Powerslide decals.

Started dealing. Man I've had a time with the pin stripes. Needed to cut to fit around quarter windows. Not sure if it's my tape line or the decals. At least Mike supplied some extra pin stripe pieces that I can patch them. Need to take a break

Had issues with he decals not sticking, not sure why. I thought I would try using Pledge as a clearcoat to seal decals. First time using it. Not 100% sold on it. Sides look great but the top surfaces, (truck lid, roof and hood) didn't go so good. Ypu can see in last picture of the hood that it didn't lay out smooth. Not sure if it was me or what. Going to finish it up and call it done later today.
