I think using BMF on the hood strip, door trim, & windshield trim would be a good idea. Are you going to put the Confederate Battle Flag on the roof & the "01" on the doors?

I am not sure if there is enough room on the roof for the confederate flag? :blink:

I was planning on it being on the back of the sleeper! :D

The "01" im not sure will fit on the door but im going to try ...and "General Lee" will be put on the hood being lettering is to big for the side of the roof...

Worth a try. Don't forget the horn that plays "Dixie"!

Are you using the decals from the 1/25 or 1/16 car?

So the 1/25 scale "General Lee" comes with the Flag on the decal sheet? I saw the model on the shelf at a LHS, but the Flag wasn't on the box art. Not "PC", I guess.

Cool.

Yes, I agree with you. I don't think the Confederate Navy Jack (I misspoke in my earlier post) will fit on top of the sleeper. Best to put it on the back. I think the "01" will be too big for the doors like you said.

     Cool idea for a off da wall build . I think you will figure out a way to use all the decals or smaller versions on this model.

Glass installed, firewall area of interior tub painted to match and some odd and ends...

Didn't like the YELLOW that the engine was painted contrasting to the orange of the truck so I ripped it out carefully and will repaint it either Pete white or CAT Yellow?...

That's much better.

Battery boxes have some issues... the fuel tanks are the same way but not noticeable... not sure which way I will fix that yet...
