On some of the later issues of the kits, there's a transparent spoiler. I might have an extra you can have, if I can dig it up.

Steve, the kit I have has a clear seven-inch spoiler and a body color 4-inch spoiler, so I had to convert my 4-inch spoiler to a clear one because I'm not building a Daytona or Talladega car.

Is the smaller spoiler clear?  I know the large super speedway spoiler is clear, but I wasn't aware the smaller one is available in clear, although I haven't opened any of the newer releases.  I've been making my own smaller clear spoiler.

Randy, you did what I had to do. It would have been nice if they had cast both spoilers in clear. From what I understand the 4 inch spoiler is used everywhere except Daytona and Talladega . Maybe it's also being use at Atlanta. I'm not sure.

Does the 1:1 car use a “clear” spoiler or something else?

They use clear, solid and a combination. I think some of the early cars had solid spoilers and drivers couldnt see so they switched them up to clear or partially clear. Might be why Salvino's didn't have clear parts right away, cause they had the rollout plans for designing the kits.

Here's the rollout Camaro with the solid spoiler.

David, I believe they are all partially clear now because they need a metal base to attach them to the car. Half of the 4 inch spoiler is obstructed by the 2 inch metal base, so the driver only has 2 inches worth of transparency. That digital rear view mirror really helps with their rear viewing capability's instead of strictly relying on their spotter.

Got the left roof ridge done. Now I can move on to priming and painting the body. I'm going to tape inside the roof because I think that part needs to be white like most of the chassis is. If I don't I'm sure I will splash some body color paint on it somehow.

Sanded the first coat down and then hit it with another coat using a more satin black. Product I used is in the last picture. I will lightly sand this trying, not to go through to the primer and then hit it with an acrylic gloss clear. I will then polish that and see what I have.

I was looking at the decal sheets and to my joy, I realized that most of the body will be covered up with the decals. in fact, the whole roof and side roof panels are completely decals. The only thing thats going to be seen much is the hood and parts of the door. so, I just need to really concentrate on making the paint extra smooth there.

You brushed that? It looks tremendous!

Thanks, Steve. But it still needs some work. Yes, I'm committed to brush painting. It's been cold and rainy here for the last week. If it wasn't for brush painting, I would not have got any painting done.

After I posted the photo above, I realized the left top corner of the windshield had popped up. I went back and fixed it. Did any of you guys use shoe goo? I figured there was no way I could use that and not make a tremendous mess, but it probably would hold the glass down. I used that canopy watch crystal glue.

Paint looks good my friend. You can do black you can do anything! 

This is much harder than the little light blue thing I'm working on at the moment...

Thanks. Pierre. Paint is not that great, but I'm hoping the future will bail me out along with all the decals that cover most of the body. Where are you posting the wip on the light blue car? I would like to check it out.

Cobra csx2196, the photo 427. Posting on Sebring 64 group build (pages 11-12) in the w.i.p. other section.

I know nothing about the new NASCAR so your build has been a good learning. Seems like a decent kit.

Thanks, I will have to check the 427 Cobra out. You should really try your hand at one of these. I'm sure you could knock one of these right out of the park. It's funny that with all of the excitement about these kits coming out there are very 

few finished builds to look at.

No more photos in the wip because it will give away the car I'm doing, if you haven't already figured it out. I'd say I've got a little less than 50 % of the decals on the model. You have to be careful because, some decals go on top of other decals. I have most of the hood done and all of the roof and part of the doors if it had doors. The hard ones will be the nose going on to the ft fenders stretching all the way to half of the top of the doors. Also, the lower rear panel decal that goes on to both quarter panels. These decals are so thick that the micro sol takes a while to work on them to get them to lay down properly. It's very labor-intensive work.

I use Evergreen Canopy glue on mine.  As you mentioned, one corner does seem to pop out on its own so I find some way to hold the whole thing down until the glue dries.

One other thing, make sure you put in the passenger side glass before you put on the B post decal.  The window actually splits the B post so if you put the decal on first, half will be obscured.  I hadn't thought about that before, but someone had put the decal on first on one of the facebook forums and was questioning it.

Thanks for the heads up, Randy, Luckily, I had already installed the right door window before I started to decal. I had to trim the left roof rail decal because it is made to go with only half the left roof top strip being there.  I fixed my roof strip because I couldn't leave it like that. Just didn't look right.
