Here's my latest completion, nowhere near my best work but here it is.  The biggest challenge was the 30+ year old decals, a handful of them wouldn't cooperate and iron out even with loads of setting solution and work.  I probably should have looked around online for an aftermarket set instead of continuing to fight through them but oh well I can live with it the way it is.  I sprayed on some clear to protect & seal them in and that didn't come out the best either.  I did some polishing to it, but not a lot as by this point I just wanted to finish it and get it off the bench.   She's 100% out of the box, no mods/additions anywhere.  Duplicolor Polar White, Cardinal Red, and Tamiya TS-15 Blue are the colors.  Even with the frustrations I encountered I'm still fairly happy with it.  Edit...I just realized I forgot to paint the fuel filler cap, will get that done.

Great build Tony, your really a good builder on these stubborn NASCAR kits. Next one I have too deal with your getting a PM. I enjoy seeing your work brother…

Thanks Carl, I'll be glad to help in any way I can, but I'm no expert on these.  Feel free to drop a PM anytime my friend.
